Feb 19, 2013
In October 2012 the Sovereign Council of the Order of Malta appointed Prince Augusto Ruffo di Calabria as the next Ambassador to Kenya. He becomes just the second Ambassador of the Order to Kenya, following in the footsteps of Count Gianfranco Cicogna Mozzoni.

The Kenyan Government approved the appointment in January 2013 and Ambassador Ruffo arrived for his first visit to Kenya in mid February.

He presented his credentials to President Mwai Kibaki on Friday 15th February 2013 at a ceremony at Statehouse, Nairobi.

Kenya and the Order of Malta have had a bilateral relation since June 2008 and during that time we have worked tirelessly in establishing our diplomatic presence and carrying out extensive humanitarian projects.

Alice Murphy who has been living in Kenya and working full time for the Embassy since July 2009 departs from her post at the end of February 2013.
