It is the last day of the President’s historic three nation tour of Sub-Saharan Africa. Sources suggest this is one of his best moments oversees because he has connected with Africans on economic partnerships for American businesses like GE, who are working in Africa. But some question if Congress will pass funding for the initiatives he has proposed; from youth initiatives, business and power building. A White House source contends they can’t say no when the American Business Center finds it is what is needed to thrive.
Meanwhile, in Tanzania Monday, the White House schedule shows President and First Family will depart Cape Town, South Africa and travel to Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania, to be greeted by President Jakaya Kikwete and First Lady Salma Kikwete.
