President elect Barack Obama’s Kenya affiliation is helping Kenya a whole lot! Tennis celebrity star Serena Williams, yesterday, cut the ribbon in Kenya to open her secondary school, the Serena Williams Secondary School. The school is located in Matooni, South-east of the Kenyan capital Nairobi. Secondary schools in Africa are the equivalent of high schools in the States. The star cites the need for education in Kenya; and the fact that Barack Obama’s father was afforded a chance for an education which ultimately led to the soon to be President, as her motivation. Wellllllll!
