It is a visit that dates back to his success in elections where he left a breeze of admiration in people’s hearts. Millions of people gathered to celebrate and were left out of words. Here in Kenya beds were too cold and we decided to give our eyes the pleasure and satisfaction of this great moment. That is when we came up with this great quote from this great man which is planted deep down in the soil and hearts of Kenyans…‘YES WE CAN’
This is when we say on Kenya …Obama’s homecoming…Obama sets foot in his ancestral land at 8.02pm. It is a visit that has left many excited with security beefed up. I must say if everyone shook hand with him it would be more of a pride and would go boasting around or even not wash hands for days to fantasize that moment. If wishes were horses I would be the first to ride to President. Obama, the most powerful president in the land and even have a cool hug and if he allows me be the first to take a selfie.
It is a visit that has led to a handful of innovations most of all this artist, Okello in his homeland Kogelo who has amazed many with his artistic drawings and everyone now wishes to have one of his drawing. With this historic moment we decided not to be left out and also showcase our artistic work to the world. Even in Kogelo English eloquence is now a sort after gold mine with grandmothers in the late 70s enrolling in schools to learn it. They say English is now an investment in Kogello and they want to be eloquent when Obama decides to visit Kogelo in the next trip.
Many Kenyans today evening were glued on televisions just to witness this historical moment. All Kenyans hope that this meeting will bring prosperity and success to Africa as well as America. The joy around Kenya is a hope and aspiration of prosperity just like the grass pressurised to grow in three days ‘KIDERO’S GRASS’ we too hope that this three days will be a success.
President Obama and President Uhuru chaired the global summit discussing this agendas:
Improvement of trade
Making women the powerhouse of development
Investing in young people
Improving tourism in Kenya as well as Africa
For sure we would not forget President Kenyatta’s statement that ‘KENYA IS A HOTBED OF INNOVATION AND VIBRANT CULTURE’
