Though US President Barack Obama is to skip Kenya in his African tour ,all hope is not lost ;he will at least engage with the Kenyan youth via satellite.
According to a statement from the Nairobi US Embassy seen by Standard Digital News Kenya ,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 who is visiting Senegal will 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.
