While withholding details of Obama's itinerary, immediate former State House spokesman Manoa Esipisu confirmed that Obama will meet Uhuru on Sunday before leaving for Siaya.

On Monday, he is expected to inaugurate the Sauti Kuu Foundation's Sports, Resource and Vocational Training Centre, and thereafter give a brief remark, before jetting out to South Africa.

"Given that his own mission under the Obama Foundation is to inspire and empower people to change the world, his attendance at this event at our ancestral home, where our father was laid to rest, is of great significance to me", Auma Obama said last month.

Artists have painted murals on the streets of Kogelo and bars are advertising a drink dubbed "Obama Brew", CNN reported.

Auma Obama- on Monday spoke for the first time after she was trolled heavily on Twitter. On Twitter, Kenyans are using hashtags like #Obamareturns and #Obamakaributena, which means " Obama welcome again" in Swahili. 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.

"Thank you Former President of USA Barack Obama for visiting and making a long stay of 8 days to our handsome country Tanzania", said Mr Msigwa in his twitter post.

The South African government on Friday launched a set of limited edition bank notes and gold coins to mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of Nelson Mandela on July 18.

In a speech he delivered at the launch of a community initiative in Kogelo, Mr Obama said he was encouraged by political developments in the country, especially when opposition leader Raila Odinga reconciled with President Uhuru Kenyatta.
