Nairobi - US President Barrack Obama will arrive in Kenya Friday evening, it has been confirmed.
In a letter sent to newsrooms Tuesday, the US embassy has invited the media to cover the arrival of Obama's Air Force One plane into the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport on July 24 and its departure on July 26.
" Kindly avail yourselves to cover the arrival of President Barrack Obama into the country Friday July 24 and his departure Sunday July 26," the letter read in part.
Obama is expected to leave Washington DC on Thursday evening for his visit to Nairobi.
With the normal flight path from the US usually 21 hours long, Obama is expected to be in Kenya from 8 PM local time Friday night.
His arrival will be the culmination of three months of planning for the highly anticipated three day visit.
Obama will co host the Global Entrepreneurship Summit GES which will take place over the weekend together with President Uhuru Kenyatta.
