In a Facebook post seen by TUKO.co.ke on Sunday morning, Obama confirmed his scheduled tour to Africa, noting he was very proud to visit the sub-Saharan Africa more times than any other United States president.
Before they head to Kogelo, Obama and his family will pay a courtesy call on President Uhuru Kenyatta and meet Opposition leader Raila Odinga in a tightly scheduled programme.
Citizen TV has been granted the chance to capture the Sauti Kuu official opening by Obama while giving a live-feed link to other broadcast houses.
The former U.S. president is also expected to hold talks with the former prime minister Raila Odinga during his tour to Luo Nyanza on Monday. Odinga is now working with Kenyatta's government following a tense political standoff that included an invalidated presidential election. Obama's arrival is a stark contrast to his Friday July 24, 2015 visit when there was complete shutdown of the country.
Barack barely knew his late father for whom he was named, Barack Obama, an economist.
Obama and his guests will attend the launch of Sauti Kuu, his half-sister Auma Obama's NGO for youth empowerment, in Kogelo, Siaya County (Western Kenya) on Monday.
Barack Obama will spend a day in Kenya and then proceed to South Africa for a three day trip.
Big screens will be set up in towns in Siaya County to show the launch of the vocational center and prevent overcrowding at the venue, said Siaya County Governor Cornell Rasanga on Nation Television.
"We are upbeat about the coming of the President Barak Obama", said Rasango, who added he is not expecting much in terms of any announcements of aid.
"Thank you Former President of USA Barack Obama for visiting and making a long stay of 8 days to our handsome country Tanzania", said Mr Msigwa in his twitter post.
