" We are ready and all measures possible have been taken to ensure that the visit is a success," he said.

Kidero added that the beautification of the city is not only for the purpose of Obama's visit but also for Nairobians.

" Let us all be happy as Kenyans because this visit is a vote of confidence for the country and we should all take it with open arms it," he said.

There has been a huge cleaning and beautification project in the City to ensure it is in bright condition to welcome Obama. It is estimated that the process will cost KES 40 million
