Details of Obama’s private meeting with Ngina Kenyatta
She briefed him on her projects
Ngina, held talks with President Obama in her capacity as a director of the Kenyatta Trust – a charitable organization that focuses on providing education to poor children in Kenya.
She is reported to have briefed the former US President on the programmes she has been carrying out.
The meeting was held at State House Nairobi on Saturday and was also attended by President Uhuru Kenyatta who is the patron of the Kenyatta Trust, as well as other officials from the organization.
“The Kenyatta Trust team along with our Director, Ngina Kenyatta and our Patron H.E Hon. Uhuru Kenyatta had the pleasure of meeting and discussing our programs with former U.S President Barack Obama on his first day in Nairobi,” a statement from Kenyatta Trust said.
Former Kisumu Deputy Governor Ruth Odinga complained that it was wrong for local leaders to be denied a meeting with Obama.
Kogelo residents have also accused Auma Obama of “selfishly keeping her brother to herself” as their famous son did not address any public gathering despite thousands of locals gathering to hear him speak.
