Barack Obama returns to Kogelo

Former President Barack Obama

When Obama visited Kenya in 2015, he was unable to visit his father's village due to security concerns, and vowed to return when he was no longer "wearing a suit" and contribute to the development of young people.

Security was particularly heavy at the Sauti Kuu Foundation Centre where Obama was present for the launch of the vocational training centre.

Through his twitter account, Gerson Msigwa, the Director for Presidential Communication in Tanzania, said the Obamas spent eight days in Tanzania before jetting out to his ancestral home.

Obama previously visited Kenya in 2006, while he was still a USA senator from IL and again in 2015 during his tenure in the White House, but never lived there.

"President Obama looks forward to meeting these emerging leaders for the first time‚ hearing about the extraordinary work they are doing across Africa‚ and discussing how the Obama Foundation can support their civic leadership development‚" Meehan.

Many Kenyans consider Former President Obama native to this country- a local kid made good- and bask in the glory of his success, despite the fact that Former President Obama never lived in Africa.
