Melania Trump visits Malawi school as part of Africa tour

U.S. first lady Melania Trump looks on as she visits a school in Lilongwe Malawi

Melania Trump continued her tour of Africa in Kenya Friday, highlighting animal conservation efforts.

Mrs Trump's visit to Africa, organised by USAID, is part of her "Be Best" campaign, which aims to improve child welfare, especially when it comes to online behaviour and addiction to opioids.

Though President Donald Trump called elephant hunting a "horror show" last November, he did not intervene when Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke ― an avid trophy hunter like Trump's adult sons Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump ― announced in March that he was lifting the trophy import ban.

First lady Melania Trump walks with singing children as she visits the Nest Orphanage in Limuru, Kenya.

The protestors who lined up on the M1 road near police headquarters at Area 30 carried hoisted placards which had messages critical on the impact of the U.S. president Donald Trump's decision to cut health care funding to Africa in general and Malawi in particular.

Mrs. Trump then visited First Lady Mutharika at the State House.

On her second day in Ghana, the first lady toured Cape Coast Castle, a former slave fort.

First Lady Melania Trump waves to children at the Chipala Primary School in Lilongwe on October 4, 2018.

"It's very emotional. I will never forget [the] incredible experience and the stories that I heard", she said after seeing the dungeons and walking through the "door of no return", the castle's final exit towards the Atlantic Ocean. She also read them a book.

"We've been watching from afar as we see the pictures of her with children and our colleagues on the ground who are doing such good work", Nauert told reporters at a briefing Tuesday.

She also visited a local traditional ruler, Osabarimba Kwesi Atta II, meeting him in Obama Hall. The first lady was quickly encircled by the gleeful children and she smiled and danced some more.

"Takulandirani [Welcome] First Lady Melania Trump" was spelled out in red, white, and blue letters on the chalkboard. "It is a attractive thing to see", the president said.

Mrs. Trump is the first United States First Lady to visit Malawi.

A small handful of protesters held signs along roads in the capital Lilongwe, with one criticising President Trump's reported use of offensive language to describe some African countries earlier this year.
