US President Barack Obama, is currently visiting Kenya – his ancestral home and the country of his father’s birth.
Obama arrived in Kenya yesterday, and as expected, Kenyans are overjoyed, and so is Barack.
Speaking on his visit, the president said, “I am proud to be the first U.S. president to visit Kenya. Obviously, it is personal for me. It’s the reason why my name is Barack Hussein Obama. My father came from these parts, I have family and relatives here….”It is wonderful to be back in Kenya.” He stated this on Saturday morning, as he opened the Global Entrepreneurship Summit, USA Today reports.
Here are some photos from his trip thus far:
