Obama Coming to Kenya in July, White House says

The White House has confirmed that president Barrack Obama will visit Kenya in July for the Global Entrepreneurship Summit. The summit is expected to bring together world business leaders, government  and and international organizations. This will be the first time the summit takes place in sub-Saharan Africa.

President Obama visited Kenya as a U.S. senator, but he has never done so as president. During a trip to other African countries last year, he said he was likely to visit Kenya before leaving the White House.

The president's father came to the United States from Kenya for school and returned to his home country after his son's birth. The elder Senior died more than 30 years ago, though the president has other family still living in Kenya.
