The plane carrying US Vice President Joe Biden has landed at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, Nairobi.

He was met by his counterpart Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka.

Biden will be in the country for two days as part of a three-nation visit, which includes attending the opening ceremony of the Fifa World Cup in South Africa on Friday.

Security has been beefed up at Hotel Intercontinental where Biden will be staying.

Biden is expected to meet President Kibaki and Prime Minister Raila Odinga as well as National Assembly Speaker Kenneth Marende.

Biden’s visit paves way for President Obama who has said he would visit the homeland of his father.
