US First Lady Melania Trump Lands in Kenya This Week

Melania Trump arrives in Ghana on solo African trip

First Lady Melania Trump landed under cloudy skies in Accra, Ghana, on october 2, the first stop in her extended solo trip to Africa. Mrs. Trump is on a five-day tour with planned stops in Malawi, Kenya and Egypt.

The former model, whose choice of clothing is keenly watched, changed from a safari-inspired departure outfit of suede trench coat and leopard print heels to a red and white striped dress with white pumps by the time she arrived in West Africa.

There to receive her was Ghana's First Lady, Rebecca Akufo-Addo. Dancers performed for the first lady in the capital city of Accra and she seemed to enjoy the moment, clapping to show her appreciation.

The first lady wore leopard-print Manolo Blahniks for the journey.

Melania Trump has made the well-being of children the focus of her work as first lady and plans to bring this message to Africa on her trip.

She accompanied Mrs Trump to the hospital where she donated a phototherapy machine, teddy bears and assorted baby items to those seeking treatment. Would she offend a whole nation with one pair of shoes? anything was possible - but we didn't expect her to kick off her trip by weighing in on one of fashion's most heated conversations. Animal conservationists also have been discussing the Kenya leg of the trip, especially since Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump are avid game hunters.

Mrs. Trump also paid a visit to the United States Embassy later in the day, and returned to her hotel late Tuesday afternoon, said CNN. "Africa is so handsome, the most lovely part of the world, in many ways", he added.

Mrs Trump's week-long trip to the continent was seen as helping to heal some of the divisions.

All four countries receive USA aid, with Egypt receiving large sums of military aid in addition to humanitarian and development assistance.

USAID, which worked with the first lady's office on the trip, has spent over $47 billion on AIDS, malaria and other health programs over the last decade.

The tour which is in line with her "Be Best" initiative also focuses on gender equality, with an emphasis on education as tool to combat inequality.
