President Trump heaps praises on First Lady Melania during her Africa tour

The Five Places Melania Trump Will Visit in Nairobi First lady Melania Trump brings "Be Best" campaign to Malawi school

On Friday, First Lady Margaret Kenyatta will take Melania to visit the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust before heading to State House for talks.

Mrs Trump who paid a courtesy call on the Paramount Chief of Oguaa Traditional Area Osabarima Kwesi Atta laid a wreath at the Castle.

United States first lady, Melania Trump left Ghana on Thursday, spent the day meeting school children in Malawi, before leaving for Kenya, the third leg of her Africa trip.

Melenia Trump's visit to Africa could be made hard because of the past actions and words of her husband President Donald Trump reportedly used a vulgar and insulting term to describe African nations.

Mrs. Trump received a joyous welcome upon her arrival at Kamuzu International Airport, with singing and dancing by a troupe of women and scores of schoolchildren waving flags.

According to Malawi State House official says Mrs Trump was looking forward to seeing how the U.S. can continue working together with Malawi to support a USAid programme that is focused on children's education.

The first lady was seen landing at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi on Thursday evening, wearing the same $1,580 Erdem bird-patterned dress.

What's missing from the FBI's investigation into Brett Kavanaugh?
Kavanaugh's op-ed in The Wall Street Journal was published on the eve of a key procedural vote in the Senate on his nomination. Republicans hold 51 seats in the Senate and changed Senate rules a year ago to end filibusters for Supreme Court nominees.

First woman wins Physics Nobel prize in 55 years
The Nobel Prizes make up a curious institution. "The inventions being honoured this year have revolutionised laser physics". Their technique is now used in corrective eye surgery. "Really? I thought there might've been more", Strickland replied.

The school is struggling with only 75 teachers looking after around 8,000 enrolled children.

In the spirit of the first lady's "Be Best" initiative, during one class visit, a teacher led what appeared to be an exercise in self-confidence, asking students to stand up and say their name along with, "You are the best!"

Mrs Trump, 48, looked briefly alarmed as she stumbled back before dissolving into laughter.

Flying from Ghana, Trump arrived at Kamuzu International Airport on October 4 where she was greeted by Gertrude Maseko, the first lady of Malawi, in a ceremony that featured drummers, dancers, and students waving the flags of both countries.

Planning for the trip began in earnest a year ago.

But a few signs of protest were afoot, too, as President Trump is not widely seen as a friend of Africa.

After about 20 minutes of tea, the first ladies strolled onto the terrace to applause.
