Kenya Minister visits Slave Ruins of Venn`s Town Mission Lodge at Sans Soucis in Seychelles accompanied by the Seychelles Ministers of Foreign Affairs and of Tourism & Culture

Kenya Minister visits Slave Ruins of Venn`s Town Mission Lodge at Sans Soucis in Seychelles accompanied by the Seychelles Ministers of Foreign Affairs and of Tourism & Culture (Forimmediaterelease.net) Mra Amina Mohamed, the Cabinet Secretary at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Kenya, and her delegation were given a tour of the Slave Ruins of Venn`s Town Mission Lodge at Sans Soucis in Seychelles by Minister Jean Paul Adam, the Seychelles Minister of Foreign Affairs, and Minister Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture.

Also present at Venn`s Town were Benjamine Rose, the PS for Culture; Anne Lafortune, the PS for Tourism; Maxwell Julie of the Seychelles Heritage Foundation; and senior protocol officers from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The visit follows the discussions between Minister Amina Mohamed of Kenya and Minister Alain St.Ange of Seychelles on the continued work by the Seychelles authorities to get the Slave Ruins of Venn`s Town Mission Lodge declared a World Heritage site. Minister St.Ange briefed Minister Amina Mohamed on the establishment set up to receive young slaves as they were being freed at the abolition of slavery. After lengthy discussions and after her visit to the historical site, the Kenyan Minister offered her support to help push the Seychelles application forward.

Minister Amina Mohamed said that she was impressed by the continued desire by Seychelles to work to protect this unique site that harbors so much history of the macabre side of the past.

Ministers Adam and St.Ange also discussed with Minister Amina Mohamed the proposition for Africa to declare African historical sites and label them. “It is time for our continent to be seen to be protecting what is dear to us before we ask the world at large to recognize what we have as historical sites," the two Seychellois Ministers said. The same idea is being floated by Kenya, the Minister also said.

From the Slave Ruins of Venn`s Town Mission Lodge, the Kenyan delegation was hosted to a Creole dinner at the Ephelia Resort where Madame Marietta Matombe and her national cultural troupe performed especially for them.

The Kenyan Minister has formally invited by Minister Alain St.Ange to address the July Economic Forum in Kenya where President Kenyatta and his colleagues from the East African Community would be meeting.
