    President Obama will rack up plenty of frequent flyer miles this summer with planned trips in Africa, Russia and Italy.

    President Obama will travel to Ghana for two days after the G8 Summit in July.

    Obama, along with his wife, Michelle, will visit Accra, Ghana, on July 10 and July 11, the White House said Saturday. It will follow Obama's trip to the G8 summit in L'Aquila, Italy, from July 8 to July 10.

    Obama will address various bilateral and regional issues with Ghanaian President John Atta Mills, the White House said in a news statement.

    "The President and Mrs. Obama look forward to strengthening the U.S. relationship with one of our most trusted partners in sub-Saharan Africa, and to highlighting the critical role that sound governance and civil society play in promoting lasting development," according to the statement.

    Obama announced a week ago that he will visit Egypt on June 4 to deliver a speech on America's relationship with the Muslim world.

    Egypt is "a country that in many ways represents the heart of the Arab world," White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said at the time.

    Gibbs deflected several questions at his daily briefing about whether Egypt is a wise choice given President Hosni Mubarak's resistance to making his government more democratic.

    Obama originally promised to deliver the speech during his first 100 days, but senior administration officials say the date slipped in part because of security and logistical issues.

    Obama has visited Africa before as a senator. In 2006, he received a hero's welcome in his father's native Kenya.

    Before the G8 summit, the president is scheduled to travel to Moscow from July 6 to July 8 at the invitation of Russian leader Dmitry Medvedev.

    The G8 is made up of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia, England and the United States

    Ameshawaambia Wakenya wasafishe nyumba yao kwanza. Watupe nje julia la corruption na waimarishe serikali ya ushirika na utawala bora. Wakenya wanafikiria huenda akawatembelea wakati wa Sullivan summit mwaka ujao.

    So let me get this straight, White Kenyan farmers like Thomas Cholmondeley are considered outsiders but Barack Hussein is welcomed with open arms in Kenya. If this is not an example of racism I don't know what is.

    Pia akashughulikie jinsi gani Makampuni ya Wamarekani yatafaidika na mafuta ya Ghana pindi wakianza kuchimba.

    Hamna cha kuwa model wala nini coz' yapo mataifa alitembelea ambayo ni very poor in democrazy! I think, Obama has decided to deliver the msg that he's an american president and not for Kenya!! Kwa makusudi, aliamua kuanza ziara zake kwenye mabara mengine badala ya Afrika kama ambavyo wavivu wa kufikiri walivyozania angeanza afrika eti kv ni mweusi (mwafrika?!)! Kuanza kwenye mabara mengine na kumalizia Afrika ilikuwa ni msg tosha kabisa kuwaambia waafrika kwamba he's not there for africa interest but for US interests! Suala la kuja Afrika na kuanza na Ghana or somewhere else ni msg ya kuwaambia wakenya kwamba he's not there for kenya interests, but for US as well!!
