Barack Obama Breaks Out His Best Dance Moves In Kenya

Former U.S. President Barack Obama arrived in Kenya on Sunday for the first time since he left office in 2017.

Is President Barack Obama in his feelings too because a video of him dancing in Kenya has us wondering if the "Ke" in Kenya happens to be the "Keke" in that viral Drake songthat has him dancing in the motherland.

On Monday, Obama will fly to his father's ancestral home in Kogelo, Siaya County where he will open a sports centre under Sauti Kuu Foundation, an organization established by her sister Auma.

The 44th US president gave props to President Uhuru Kenyatta and opposition leader Raila Odinga for resolving their differences without resorting to war. He is also planned to meet with Raila Odinga, the opposition leader who is now working with Kenyatta's government.

"Kenya has made extraordinary strides in recent decades_ There has been real progress in this fantastic country and it should inspire today's young Kenyans to demand even more progress", Obama, the first black US President, said during the ceremony. Obama barely knew his father, of the same name, who was a Kenyan economist. Big screens will be set up in towns in Siaya County to show the launch of the vocational center and prevent overcrowding at the venue, said Siaya County Governor Cornell Rasanga on Nation Television.

The former USA president, in a footage by a Kanyan Television, was seen pulling his grandmother Sarah Obama, clad in traditional garb, onto the dance floor and moving to some music. "My father comes from these parts", Obama said at the Global Entrepreneurship Summit in 2015.

Obama's next stop is South Africa, where he's scheduled to speak at an event honoring the late Nelson Mandela this Tuesday.
