Barack Hussein Obama II; born August 4, 1961 is the 44th and current President of the United States of America.

Barack Obama will make a long-awaited return to Kenya this July, visiting his father's homeland for the first time since becoming US president, the White House announced Monday. The president's trip will create another opportunity for dialogue with the government and civil society on these issues. Kenyatta had attended a US-Africa summit in Washington in 2014 but did not hold a bilateral meeting with Obama. Obama had visited Kenya multiple times before entering politics and in 2006 as a US senator, when he visited his father's home village Nyang'oma-Kogelo and took a very public HIV test. The president's heritage has spurred domestic controversy, with some hardline political foes claiming he was not born in the United States and so was ineligible to become president. Obama allies say this is thinly veiled racism and the president has often made light of the controversy.

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: Well, I think it is important first of all that the president of the United States underscores our commitment to partnering with countries around the world, even though we're not intimidated by terrorist organisations. Second, the counterterrorism co-operation between the United States and Kenya - and Uganda and other countries - in East Africa - is very strong. And part of the subject of the visit is to continue to strengthen those ties to make them more effective
