Excitement has gripped the small village of Kogelo in western Kenya as their famous son, former US President Barack Obama, visits after 12 years.

He last visited his ancestral village in 2006 when he was a US senator.

Mr Obama arrived in the country on Saturday and is set to inaugurate a youth project run by his sister.

Known as the Sauti Kuu Foundation, it will be a sports facility and vocational training centre.

The former US president made a low key arrival to the East African nation compared to his visit in 2015 when he was still in office.
