Obama Pledges Trip To Kenya

Friday, 04 Jun 2010 07:58 AM

A Kenyan news agency reports that U.S. President Barack Obama has promised to visit the country, his father's homeland, before he leaves office.

The Kenya Broadcasting Corporation (KBC) says Mr. Obama made the pledge in an exclusive interview on June 1 in Washington.

Mr. Obama has visited Kenya three times before but never since becoming president.

Mr. Obama barely knew his father, who died in a car crash in 1982. However, Kenyans closely followed Barack Obama's election as president and many consider him one of their own.

U.S. Vice President Joe Biden is scheduled to visit Kenya next week during a three-nation tour.
