Former US President Barack Obama is expected to land in Ng’iya Girls’ School’s football field in Siaya before being driven to Kogalo to launch his half-sister’s foundation. Before this, Obama will meet President Uhuru Kenyatta and opposition chief Raila Odinga in Nairobi. Ngiya Girls principal Florence Okut confirmed top US security officials inspected the field yesterday but said she does not know whether it will be used.
The former US President will be accompanied by 400 dignitaries as he opens Auma Obama’s Sauti Kuu Foundation. “Obama has always supported me and I will be happy again when he joins his sister on this big day to set up the new sports, resource and vocational training centre on Monday in Alego, Siaya county,” Auma said. There are plans to set up five more training centres in the country.
“I would be happy to see people utilise their farms back in the village and stop moving to cities. Most countries in Europe do not have plumbers, carpenters and other people who can do masonry. We also have to understand that the work done by hands can pay better than white collar jobs,” Auma said.
