Here is why Obama left the gifts given to him in Kenya behind


Details have emerged why President Barack Obama did not leave Kenya with the gifts presented to him by the Kenyan president, Uhuru Kenyatta. President Kenyatta had collected two portraits done by pencil artist, Collins Okello, and a
sculpture of an elephant that he presented as gifts to President Obama. The two portraits together with the elephant sculpture are said to be worth $3,000. .


He however had to leave the artwork behind because American laws forbid him from accepting gifts from other heads of state. Gifts to an American President must first be cleared by the department in charge of gifts to the head of state and other state officers….. ds is disheartening. No wonder millions of ppl always turn down d opportunity of becoming d U.S president…….
