However, his wife’s absence was conspicuous. It became ostensive that Michelle Obama, the former U.S. first lady, had skipped the Kenyan tour by her husband.

The two apparently had a stay in Tanzania prior to the Kenyan trip where they spent time touring the Serengeti National Park.

According to posts by Tanzania Tourism and Director for Presidential Communication Tanzania, Michelle and Obama were in Tanzania for a long stay.

The former U.S. first family were in the country for 8 days at the Serengeti.

In Kenya, Obama had a low-key landing at JKIA with journalists not allowed to capture his arrival. He later met President Uhuru Kenyatta at State House before meeting former Prime Minister Raila Odinga.

Having spent more than a week at neighbouring Tanzania, the question most Kenyans would ask is why Michelle skipped Obama’s trip ‘home.’
