Tillerson not feeling well cancels activities in Kenya
NAIROBI (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson canceled scheduled events on Saturday on the second day of a visit to Kenya because he had been feeling unwell, a State Department spokesman said, adding that he would resume his program on Sunday.
"The secretary is not feeling well after a long couple days working on major issues back home such as North Korea and has canceled his events for the day," spokesman Steve Goldstein told reporters traveling with Tillerson.
"Some events will go ahead without him, while they are looking at the possibility of rescheduling others," said Goldstein, under-secretary of state for public diplomacy and public affairs at the State Department.
Goldstein later said the secretary's health had improved. "The Secretary is feeling better and will resume his normal schedule tomorrow," he said.
Tillerson, 65, is four days into his first diplomatic trip to Africa, where he has visited Ethiopia, Djibouti and Kenya, and is scheduled to go on to Nigeria and Chad.Read More...
