Verdict: Obama's trip to Kenya a success

29 July 2015, 13:30 William Korir

Nairobi - Kenyans believe that the visit by US President Barack Obama to the country was a success. Here's why.

A short survey by News24 showed that Kenyans felt that the trip to the country by the first sitting US President was a high success even though some had their reservations.

Of 200 people interviewed by News24 over the Obama trip, 80% thought it was a successful trip, while 15% felt it did not achieve much and 5% thought it was a failure.

Of the 80%, they felt it was a success because Obama passed through Kenya in a secure manner, he achieved the goals of his trip and had a nice time at it.

Also, may thought that it was successful because Kenya and the US agreed on and signed crucial deals to help the country move forward as an economy and as a society, mentioning the deals to help women and more on the Al Shabaab.

Others felt it was a success because Obama mentioned his Kenyan roots and also in the manner in which he danced during the State House dinner.

Of the ones who felt it was a failure, they mentioned the fact that Nairobi came to a standstill to allow Obama move around as one of their reasons.

They felt that the effort put in place by the government could have gone elsewhere and not to Obama's visit.

Obama spent three days in the country, days in which major roads in Nairobi were closed to facilitate his arrival and stay.

What do you think of Obama's visit?
