  • US First Lady Melania Trump who is in Africa to promote her children's welfare programme described her visit to the Chipala primary school in Malawi as

US first lady Melania Trump embarked on her first solo trip to Africa and is set to visit Ghana and Malawi as her first two stops along her five-day, four country trip.

Following the First Lady's departure from Malawi on Thursday evening, she travelled to Kenya, where she was greeted at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport by Margaret Kenyatta, the country's First Lady.

Trump left the country after five-hours visit and headed to Kenya and she will also visit Egypt having visited Ghana.

She took to twitter to say "Thank you #Ghana!"

Melani then made a stop over in Malawi on Thursday, October 4, where she visited a number of primary schools benefiting from United States assistance and handed over another 1.4 million books through an American funded national reading program. With a smile on her face, the first lady read along with children during their lessons.

Despite the president's previous statement, Afful said that "she has come to see how wonderful we are".

Following Melania's visit to the school, she travelled to the Statehouse, where she enjoyed tea with Malawi's First Lady Gertrude.

"We see, first hand, in Malawian hospitals, the shocking effect the budget cuts may ultimately have".

School educators also explained to the first lady how important the USAID textbook donations, which help power the country's National Reading Program, are to children at the school. The soccer balls, along with tote bags donated for the teachers, sported the logo of "Be Best", the child well-being initiative Mrs. Trump launched this year. "I was heartened to spend time with the students". "It is a handsome thing to see", wrote Trump.

After the talks, Melania is scheduled to watch a performance by Sarakasi dancers at the Kenya National Theater.

Among scores of people lining the motorcade route between the school and the ambassador's residence, a few white people held signs.
