On Monday, he will leave Nairobi for his ancestral home in K'Ogelo in Siaya County to preside over the commissioning of a project by his half sister, Dr Auma Obama.

Former US President Barack Obama on Sunday arrived in the Kenyan capital Nairobi.
Also present at State House to welcome Mr Obama was Deputy President William Ruto and other senior government officials.

Induct the youth "The former US President called for greater induction of the youth into the initiative to ensure its deepening into the future", read the statement.
The former USA president has already left Kisumu airport from Nairobi and is on his way to Kogelo by road.
At his ancestral home, Mr Obama is first expected to have a breakfast meeting with his family.
Excitement has gripped Kogelo village in Siaya County as its "son" Barack Obama visits after more than a decade.
The strict programme notwithstanding, local politicians, church leaders, elders and the youth were last evening polishing their memoranda, which they plan to hand over to the former US President whose father hailed from the village.
Obama is also set to meet opposition leader Raila Odinga during his visit to the country, the AP reported. During that visit, his sister rode in the presidential limousine after he landed at the airport and later introduced him to a crowd of almost 5,000 Kenyans.
