NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — President Barack Obama has opened a two-nation tour of Africa focused on deepening economic and security partnerships with the continent and its people.
Obama landed in the Kenyan capital of Nairobi on Friday.
His father was Kenyan and the trip amounts to a homecoming of sorts for Obama, who is expected to spend time with family.
Obama’s agenda for Saturday includes co-hosting a U.S.-sponsored business summit and a meeting with Kenya’s president, followed by a news conference and a state dinner.
He’ll address the Kenyan people on Sunday before departing for Ethiopia.
Obama meets Monday with Ethiopia’s president and prime minister, holds a news conference and attend a state dinner.
He addresses members of the African Union on Tuesday before heading back to Washington.
