Here is what Barack Obama will do during his visit to Kenya

Barack Obama praised the work of his half-sister Auma right and reminisced with Mama Sarah centre with whom he caught a chicken in 1987

The former United States president arrived in Kenya yesterday to open a charity set up by his half-sister, Auma Obama, in the village where their father grew up, 250 miles northwest of Nairobi in Kogelo, Siaya county.

Immediately after landing at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, Mr Obama's motorcade headed straight to State House to a meeting with President Kenyatta, Deputy President William Ruto and other senior government officials.

Odinga at the same time commended Obama and his sister Auma Obama on their foundation which seeks to empower the youth in the country.

Obama is in Kenya to help launch the sports and training centre founded by his half-sister, Auma Obama, through her foundation Sauti Kuu. There, he is expected to hold a meeting with Kenyatta and opposition leader, Raila Odinga. 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.
