The American embassy in Nairobi has indicated that Obama will be visiting Kenya as a private citizen.

Citizen TV will cover the event live from Kogelo, as the former President opens a sports facility for disadvantaged children under Sauti Kuu Foundation.

It is an initiative of his sister Dr. Auma Obama who terms it as a fulfillment of their father’s dream.

“He himself wants to work with young people around leadership: taking responsibility for your life, using the opportunities you have. So, we have very similar objectives with the work that we are doing,” she told Citizen TV‘s Anne Kiguta on Thursday.
