On Thursday, news emerged that USA President Joe Biden’s wife and US first lady Jill Biden is planning to visit Kenya in February next month.
This will be Jill Biden’s first visit to the country since her husband and President Biden won US presidential race and took over power from Donald Trump.
However, the news of her pending visit to Africa and Kenya was received with mixed reactions from Kenyans, with some coming out to wonder what the first lady is coming to do while others went ahead to warn and read out riots.
A section of cautious Kenyans insinuated on her visit, claiming she could be landing in the country to speak about the controversial LGBTQ issue, which has formed debate in the country after the death of one of the activists Edwin Kiptoo Chiloba.
While connecting her visit with the recent statement issued by the United States State Department asking for speedy investigations into Chiloba’s death, Kenyans warn Jill that they are not ready for a discussion concerning LGBTQ rights and acceptance in the country
During a press briefing about a week ago, the United States Department of State spokesman Ned Price affirmed that the President Joe Biden-led administration will offer any assistance needed to ensure justice is delivered for Chiloba’s death.
“Kugfanya nini? hasituletee mambo za Chiloba na LGBTKiu” warned one user
“What is she looking for in Kenya?? And this shouldn’t be news in any way it should go unnoticed” added another user
Here are some more reactions;
