Obama Arrives in Kenya, Meets President Kenyatta

NAIROBI – Former United States president Barack Obama touched down on Sunday in Kenya, where he was greeted by President Uhuru Kenyatta, official sources said.

Obama was in Kenya, the birthplace of his father, for a two-day visit during which time he would meet leader of the opposition Raila Odinga and inaugurate a youth center set up by his sister, Auma.

“It was a great pleasure to welcome you back Barack Obama,” tweeted Kenyatta alongside photographs showing the pair together.

Announcing his trip to Africa in a social media post on Friday, Obama said the trip was his first to the continent since he left office in January last year.

“Kenya, of course, is the Obama ancestral home. I visited for the first time when I was in my twenties and I was profoundly influences by my experiences,” Obama said.

The former head of state would also be visiting South Africa, where he would meet President Cyril Ramaphosa, as well as give a speech at an event organized by the Obama Foundation to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Nelson Mandela’s birth.
