No sooner had Trump’s minister, Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson started off on his first African tour than nature came calling.

Tillerson had taken ill in Kenya, a day after he left Ethiopia on the first leg of his African tour.

As a result, he had to cancel scheduled events on Saturday.

This was confirmed by State Department’s spokeswoman who confirmed that Tillerson had to cancel because “he is not feeling well”.

“The secretary is not feeling well after a long couple day working on major issues back home such as North Korea and has canceled his events for the day,” spokesman Steve Goldstein told reporters travelling 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.

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.
