Obama to snub MPs during Kenya visit

21 July 2015, 18:28 William Korir

Nairobi - US President Barrack Obama will not visit Parliament chambers and address members of Parliament it has been revealed.

There had been reports that the US President would host a special session of the Senate and National Assembly but those reports have now been brushed aside by insiders.

According to them, there have been no motions made towards a special session and that if Obama arrives at Parliament buildings it will be on a personal tour.

" There have been no indications that there will be a special session to this day and normally they are usually announced in advance," a staffer at the Parliamentary Clerk's office told News24.

Obama is however expected to address the nation at the Safaricom Centre Sunday.

He will also visit the Kenyatta University and adjoining areas as will the Global Entrepreneurship Summit GES on the same weekend.

Obama is also going to snub a visit to the home village of his father Barrack Obama senior during his visit as logistics of the trip are too much to have him appear there.

" Sadly he will not make it to Kogelo. His programme will be centred simply around Nairobi," US Ambassador Bob Godec told reporters last week.

Obama arrives in Kenya Friday 24 July and will leave Sunday 26 July.
