US Ambassador to Kenya Kyle McCarter resigns, following his republican US President Donald Trump’s tenure lapsing on January 20, 2021.


McCarter will be leaving office the same day Trump leaves office to give way to Joe Biden, whose inauguration scheduled on January 20.



“As I reflect on my time as Ambassador, I continue to believe that Kenya should no longer be just a beneficiary of foreign aid, but a patron to the rest of East Africa,” he wrote in a farewell letter on Friday.



On January 2, 2019, McCarter replaced Bob Godec, who had worked as the US Ambassador to Kenya for six consecutive years.



“People make up our institutions. People make up our governments. People are fallible and make mistakes, " he stated.


"Democracy gives us the chance to recognise our mistakes, to learn from them, and to make changes to ensure our institutions and our leaders do not repeat those mistakes,” he added.


He earlier worked as a Republican member of the Illinois Senate from February 2009 to January 2019.
