Former U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama arrived in his homeland of Kenya on Sunday in what marks his first visit to this East African country since leaving office in January of 2017.
Yes, you read that correctly Obama is in his homeland and the birthplace of his father, Kenya in order to help launch the sports and training center founded by his half-sister, Auma Obama, through her foundation Sauti Kuu.
It was reported that after landing in the capital, Obama met President Uhuru Kenyatta at the official residence, according to Kenyatta’s twitter account. Sure, why not? After all, he is the president of his homeland. Obama is also expected to meet Raila Odinga who is the opposition leader now working with Kenyatta’s government after Odinga and Kenyatta pledged to work together on March 9th. This pact ended months of turmoil following a disputed presidential election that was nullified by the Supreme Court and a rerun which the opposition boycotted. Wow, kind of like the Obama Administration, Justice Department, and FBI wanted to do here in the U.S. after Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton in 2016. Go figure!
In Nairobi, Obama met President Uhuru Kenyatta at the official residence, according to Kenyatta’s twitter account. Obama is also expected to meet Raila Odinga, the opposition leader now working with Kenyatta’s government. Odinga and Kenyatta on March 9 pledged to work together, ending months of turmoil following a disputed presidential election that was nullified by the Supreme Court and a rerun which the opposition boycotted.
“We are upbeat about the coming of the President Barak Obama,” said Rasango, who added he is not expecting much in terms of any announcements of aid. Rasanga said he will ask Obama to help develop a university to be called President Barack Obama University.
After his two-day stay in Kenya Obama will go to South Africa where he will give a speech marking the 100th anniversary of the birth of Nelson Mandela and meet with 200 young Africans in the Obama Foundation’s leadership program.”
Obama’s visit to Kenya is very low key because knowing him he’s probably up to no good and in some way or another trying to undermine President Trump in some way. Many Kenyans and even more of us Americans now consider Obama native to Keny. Kenyans even look to him as a local kid made good and even go as far as to bask in the glory of his success, little do they know the turmoil he caused in the U.S. and the world when he decided to lead from behind for 8 years.
