Ben Carson announces Africa trip

08 December 2015, 09:09

New York - Ben Carson's campaign says the Republican presidential candidate will travel to Africa later this month.

A statement from the campaign says Carson will visit three African nations on a trip slated to begin Dec. 27. No word on which countries Carson will visit or how long the trip will last.

However, speculation is rife that Carson will be visiting Kenya among other countries, following a video clip where he states that he is a Turkana.

Carson is the only African-American among the major Democratic and Republican presidential hopefuls. He has said previously that he traced his ancestry back to African slaves brought to the United States by force.

In the campaign, the retired neurosurgeon has tried to answer concerns about his lack of foreign policy experience.

The Africa trip would be Carson's second foreign venture in recent months. In late November, he traveled to the Middle East, visiting Syrian refugee camps in Jordan.
