Kenya: Kogelo Lights Up As Obama Heads Home With Goodies

Former US president Barrack Obama heads back to his ancestral home on Monday morning accompanied by a delegation keen to support local projects.

Obama arrived in the country on Sunday and held separate talks with President Uhuru Kenyatta and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga.

Obama's jet will land at the Kisumu International Airport where he will be received by Governor Anyang Nyongo, before proceeding by road to Siaya where his ancestral home is located.

His itinerary includes launching the Sauti Kuu centre that was put up by his half-sister Auma Obama, and which is key in transforming the sleepy village of Nyang'oma.

Auma told journalists last week that the centre will mainly target to transform youths by offering an opportunity to pursue various tertiary courses. It also has various recreational facilities to help unlock the potential of local youth.

There has been tight security in the region, and particularly Kogello where the ceremony will be held.
