Michelle Obama, who’s visit to South Africa has been anticipated by many, landed in Pretoria, South Africa last night. She didn’t come alone though, she brought along her two daughters, niece, nephew and mother.
Her visit is said to be aimed at women empowerment, which will include holding talks with women in Johannesburg and Cape Town before heading out to Botswana.
[The Obama ladies were ] “welcomed at Waterkloof Air Force Base this evening by South African officials and their children. And the First Daughters receieved South African blankets with colors of the nation’s flag by young children of the protocol officer as a welcome.” (it’s Winter overhere, I hope the ladies packed warm clothes).
“On the trip Mrs. Obama and her fam are meeting with several women leaders, including South African President Jacob Zuma’s wife and
Nompumelelo Ntuli-Zuma, Graca Machel, the wife of former South African President Nelson Mandela. She’s also set to met with nobel peace prize winner Desmond Tutu.”
“This is the first lady’s fourth trip to the continent of Africa and her first
to South Africa. This is her second solo official visit. Next stops:
Johannesburg and Cape Town and continuing to Botswana…..”
