NAIROBI (Xinhua) --
Former U.S. President Barack Obama
arrived in Kenya on Sunday for a two-day private visit.
Obama arrived in Nairobi and headed to State House in Nairobi
with his sister Auma Obama for a meeting with President Uhuru
While in the country, the former U.S. president is also
expected to meet opposition leader Raila Odinga and thereafter
head to his father’s ancestral home in Kogelo on Monday where he
will open a sports centre under Sauti Kuu Foundation.
The centre founded by his sister, Auma, will provide
educational and economic opportunities to help young people
serve their communities—and shares a similar mission to the
former president’s Obama Foundation.
Auma said her foundation aims to change mentalities of people
so they realize there are opportunities they can make use of.
Security has been beefed up in Nairobi, Kisumu and Siaya in
Western Kenya for the visit by the ex-president who is
accompanied by several delegates.
