Larry Asego’s 2 cents on President Obama’s Historic Visit

Classic 105 presenter Larry Asego is weighing in on the Obama mania fever that has hit Kenyans. Obama who jetted into the country Friday evening was warmly welcomed by Kenyans with memes and comparisons between him and Uhuru Kenyatta ruling social media.

Kenyans may forget that Barack Obama is here for the 6th Global Entrepreneurship summit and the purpose of his visit that should bring fruits for Kenya and Larry Asego is not taking it lightly. He may have learnt a few lessons from Obama that we can borrow.

Check out his views below

Kenya, a Nation on the brink of greatness. This Summit legitimizes our potential. If only we could put the politics aside just for 2yrs only.

The results of the Entrepreneurship Summit should also receive as much focus as the Beast or who was wearing what me thinks.

GES is an big plus for Kenya. What we do after is what counts. Once the beast is gone and the grass grows, what we do will determine where we go. Back to nonsense of forward to progress

Eric Omondi Rubs Off On President Obama With His ‘Hawayuni!’ Greeting

‘Jambo, Niaje Wasee, Hawayuni…was President Obama’s choice of greeting at the global entrepreneurship summit he was co-hosting in Gigiri. Obama who seemed pretty excited to host the summit tweeted Friday night after his arrival, “Proud to be the first American President to visit Kenya. Happy to see family, and to talk with young Kenyans about the future.”

Obama who was last in Nairobi in 2006 during his tour as Illinois senator noted that Nairobi had changed for the better and did not look the same way it did back then.

Obama also reiterated why coming to Kenya was very important for him saying, “This is personal for me, there is a reason why my name is Barack Hussein Obama.”

It seems the warmth and the spirit of the Kenyan people as quoted in his speech is rubbing of on MR. President. Keep up with his two day schedule here.

Eric Omondi who coined the ‘Hawayuni’ phrase as part of his opening act during all his events must be elated knowing that President Obama relates whether intentionally or unintentionally.

Mama Sarah en route to Nairobi to meet grandson

Mama Sarah has departed for Nairobi to meet her step-grandson, US President Barack Obama, who will arrive on Friday night. Sarah, who said the US Embassy rescheduled her flight from Thursday, is expected to arrive with Siaya Governor Cornel Rasanga.

She spoke when she joined Rasanga in launching a county tourism and culture expo on Wednesday. The expo, and several other events, have been aligned with Obama’s three-day visit, during which he will not go to Nyang’oma Kogelo village.

The White house said Obama will spend private time in Nairobi with family members but will not travel to the village that is most closely associated with the family name. Obama, who became the first black US president, is the son of a black father from Kenya and a white mother from Kansas.

The US president is visiting with a mission to strengthen US security and economic ties, but his personal connection to his father’s birthplace will dominate a trip viewed as a native son’s return to his home. He will hold bilateral talks and dine with President Uhuru Kenyatta, and co-host the 6th Global Entrepreneurship Summit.

He will also give public addresses at Kenyatta University and Safaricom Stadium Kasarani. Obama departed for Kenya on Thursday, his first trip to his father’s homeland as US president, kicking off a swing through Africa that includes a stop in Ethiopia.

He boarded Air Force One from Joint Base Andrews, Maryland and made a stop over at Ramstein Air Force Base in Germany.
