Kenya, Nigeria, and Senegal will all host the American who is expected to meet their presidents and deliver a speech on the US-Africa policy.
In Kenya, Blinken is expected to discuss on the regional security issues disturbing East Africa such as the over one-year old Ethiopian conflict, Somalia, and the military junta in Sudan.
