Obamamania sweeps Kenya as resourceful businesses cash in on visit

Posters with the image of Barack Obama are offered for sale to motorists in Nairobi, ahead of the U.S. president's visit to Kenya.
Obama's visit to his father's homeland might be a short one, but Kenyan entrepreneurs are hoping that it will have long lasting benefits on the country's economic development.
Preparations have been in full swing for weeks, with Nairobi abuzz with excitement and anticipation.
The U.S. president will travel to the Kenyan capital later this week to address the sixth Global Entrepreneurship Summit. The immediate consequences of the visit will be clearly felt in the city, with airways and roads gearing up for a complete lockdown.
