US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has cancelled scheduled events in Kenya on Saturday because he is feeling poorly.

He is feeling unwell after long days working on major issues such as North Korea, said Steve Goldstein, the undersecretary of state.

Mr Tillerson was to hold an interactive meeting with Health CS Sicily Kariuki at the Pumwani Maternity Hospital on Saturday at 9am but the event did not take place.

Tillerson arrived in Nairobi on Friday, and met with President Uhuru Kenyatta.
