The President of United States, Barack Obama on arrival at the Nairobi Airport, Kenya was greeted with a big bunch of flowers by eight-year-old Joan Wamaitha.
He then met his half-sister Auma Obama and gave a big hug to her while Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta looked on.
A trip down memory lane shows that Barack and Auma first met in Chicago when they were both in their twenties, following an invitation from the President.
Auma Obama and the President share a late father, Barack Hussein Obama Sr, who is buried in Nyang’oma Kogelo, where their shared 93-year-old step-grandmother, Mama Sarah, lives.
