Barack Obama arrives in Kenya

Former US president Barack Obama has arrived in Kenya, the country of his father's birth, his first visit to the country since leaving office.
Obama is in Kenya to help launch the sports and training centre founded by his half-sister, Auma Obama, through her foundation Sauti Kuu. After landing in the capital, Nairobi, Obama met President Uhuru Kenyatta at the official residence. Large crowds are expected in the city of Kisumu, where Obama will fly today before driving to his father's home village of Kogelo in Siaya County.
