US President Barack Obama will field questions from Kenyan youth despite skipping the country in his Africa tour.

A statement from the Nairobi US Embassy stated that Obama will engage the eight young Kenyans in a discussion via
satellite broadcast on Saturday from the University of Johannesburg, South Africa.

The broadcast will be aired by one of the local TV stations.

"Eight young Kenyans will engage with President
Barack Obama in a live satellite broadcast during a pan-African Town Hall event University of Johannesburg, Soweto Campus," the statement indicated in part.

Obama will also respond to questions from
youth from Kampala and Lagos as well as from the studio audience in South Africa during the 75 minute live broadcast television event.

Obama has already arrived in Senegal for his historic African tour. He will also visit
South Africa and Tanzania.

He recently said his itinerary did not include Kenya because the
International Criminals Court ( ICC) had indicted President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto.

First he meets with Kenya's Chief Justice and now Kenyan youth!...reminds me of the days when
Moi travelled with Ouko to the States and Pres Bush decided to meet Ouko and not Moi. That
led to the death of Kenya's best Foreign Minister to date!

Ujumbe ushawifikia wahusika mazee!
[h=1]Kenya declares holiday for Obama[/h]
Kenya has declared Thursday a public holiday to celebrate the election of Barack Obama to the US presidency.

Iweje nchi ambayo Obama ndiyo rais isitangaze siku aliyochaguliwa kuwa rais kuwa siku ya mapumziko na nchi ambayo baba yake alitoka itangaze siku hiyo kuwa ni ya mapumziko?

Ndo kujipendekeza kwenyewe huko au ni ujinga na ulimbukeni tu?
