Obama is coming on the invitation of Dr. Auma Obama, the founder of Sauti Kuu Sports who is also the first US Black President’s sister.
The facilities – Sauti Kuu Sports, a resource and vocational training centre – will be the first in the region and will host world-class athletes. The centre also comprises an international standard-size football pitch sponsored by the German Ministry for Development Cooperation, a basketball court sponsored by the Giants of Africa Foundation, a volleyball and netball court.
I am so happy to finally inaugurate this centre after three years of hard work. The space will serve as a safe physical space for children, youth and their families to meet and interact regularly while participating in different sports and learning activities,” Dr Obama said on Saturday, in a statement by Gina Din Group that is handling the event.
She said Obama’s attendance is significant and promotes his mission under the Obama Foundation.
