The highest Japanese order, the Order of the Chrysanthemum, is reserved for heads of state or royalty, while the second-highest order, the Order of the Paulownia Flowers, is mostly reserved for politicians.
The conferment ceremony was held in line with the Covid-19 guidelines and health protocols at the embassy.
The decoration was conferred to acknowledge her contribution to the development of global health as well as her ardent dedication in bolstering Kenya-Japan bilateral relations in health and human exchange areas.
