Former United States President Barrack Obama has today visited his ancentral land in Kogelo, Siaya County.

Being the former President of the United States, security was tightened in the area and all guests were required to be frisked before gaining access to the area.

However, drama ensued when Siaya Governor Cornel Rasanga refused to be frisked by the security officers.

The Governor noted that he is the County Boss and cannot be subjected to frisking.

"I am the governor of this county, I will not be searched," Rasanga said as quoted by Citizen.

He was later allowed into the venue and was among the leaders that ushered Obama into the Sauti Kuu centre.

Meanwhile, dignitaries have already arrived at the centre with various artists entertaining them.

Some of the dignitaries at the event include; local politicians, Ambassadors, top business leaders, top global musicians including Yvonee Chaka Chaka among others.

In Kisumu, residents have gathered at the Jomo Kenyatta sports grounds to follow the event being streamed live by the county government.
