Obama Returns to Kenya, Meets President Uhuru

Obama will leave South Africa on Thursday.

The former US President who arrived in the country on Sunday 15 July, will be received by Governor Anyang' Nyong'o.

Mr Obama last visited the village in 2006 when he was the senator for Illinois State in the US.

Local traders are also trying to cash in on Mr Obama's visit to Kogelo and have set up mobile studios on Ng'iya-Ndori road that passes through Nyang'oma Kogelo trading centre.

Former US President Barrack Obama has arrived in Kenya and started his two day visit in the east African country by paying a courtesy call on President Uhuru Kenyatta at State House, Nairobi.

Obama is reported to have touched down a few minutes past 1 PM at a time television station were torn between giving a live feed of what was going on in K'Ogelo village and the arrival proceeds at JKIA.

Some of the merchandise being sold includes Kenyan and U.S. flags.

May warns Brexit legacy can not be hard border
However, the lawmaker said, the president won't say any of that, so "I don't think he should be meeting with Vladimir Putin ". The ensuing chaos was picked up by US President Donald Trump prior to his arrival to the UK.

But it is not all smooth for the traders since the security agents are restricting their movements.

Although chances of accessing the Sauti Kuu Vocational Centre compound where Obama will be inaugurating the institution appeared remote due to tough security, the groups said they are determined to hand over their wish lists to Obama.

The facility is run by his sister, Dr Auma Obama.

Obama met Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta, opposition leader Raila Odinga and other top officials after his arrival.

"Given that his own mission under the Obama Foundation is to inspire and empower people to change the world, his attendance at this event at our ancestral home, where our father was laid to rest, is of great significance to me", Auma Obama said last month.

Barack is also expected to meet Raila Odinga, the opposition leader now working with Kenyatta's government.
