August 20, 2015

One could hardly see her small frame, covered by the towering figure of President Uhuru Kenyatta, holding a bouquet of flowers and waiting to receive the world’s most powerful leader, President Barack Obama.

Meet eight-year-old Joan Wamaitha, from Mama Ngina Children’s Home, the first person to welcome the US president when he set foot on Kenyan soil Friday evening.

Mr Obama hugged the little girl, spent a few moments chatting with her, and even guided her in posing for a picture with him.

Perhaps the significance of meeting the US leader may not have hit her due to her tender age.
