US First Lady Melania Trump will be visiting Kenya this Friday as part of her Africa tour which saw her land in Ghana less than 24 hours ago.
According to sources within the security sector, Melania Trump will be visiting Kenya National Theatre where she will be entertained by a group of kids and Sarakasi dancers. She is also expected to visit the US embassy and have a meeting with the staff before going to KWS headquarters and animal orphanage at the Nairobi National Park where she is expected to adopt one of the animals.

While the above are places known already and planning to welcome her, the US first lady will also hold a brief meeting with President Uhuru Kenyatta and First Lady Margaret Kenyatta at State House Nairobi.
Melania landed in Accra Ghana last evening as she starts a tour which will see her visit Malawi, Kenya and Egypt in the four-nation Africa tour. This is the first solo international trip by the US First Lady. Her husband recently referred to African countries as “shithole” sparking off accusations of racism.

Melania Trump will also be promoting her Be Best initiative while campaigning cyberbullying, something which her husband has been variously accused of.
President Trump has already praised the first lady’s initiative in Africa saying that she is doing great. He said that he watched her disembark from the plane and embrace the children.
