Obama watched World Cup final in Kenya, launches Sauti Kuu project - ITREALMS Online

The former United States (US) President, Barrack Obama, on Sunday watched the World Cup final from the city of Nairobi, Kenya, just as he launched Sauti Kuu Foundation project, reports ITRealms.

Mr. Obama who arrived in Kenya on Sunday afternoon in commencement of his two-day visit to Kenya kicked off with a courtesy visit on President Uhuru Kenyatta at State House, Nairobi.

While welcoming the 44th US President in Kenya Sunday afternoon, President Kenyatta commended Mr Obama for keeping his promise to visit the country after his service as US president.

ITRealms recalls that Mr Obama had made the promise when he last visited Kenya in 2015.

President Kenyatta also congratulated the former US president for establishing the Obama Foundation which seeks to empower the youth to become the agents of change in Africa.

The two leaders agreed that the youth in Africa could become the continent’s most valuable asset if their energy and creativity are effectively harnessed.

In addition, Mr Obama would be inaugurating the Sauti Kuu Foundation’s project, a youth centre set up by his half-sister, Auma Obama.

He also visited his father’s ancestral village in Kenya’s South-western Siaya County on Monday and danced to some traditional music with his grandmother Sarah Obama, who was cladded in traditional garb, and was drawn onto the dance floor and getting down to some music by President Obama.
