US President Obama, along with first lady Michelle Obama and daughters Malia and Sasha, are scheduled to depart Washington Wednesday morning for Africa but there’s a change in their plans. It’s reported that Obama who was to visit Kenya, Senegal, South Africa and Tanzania will skip his father’s birthplace because there are “concerns about Kenya’s political situation,” reports CBSNews. Kenya's new president is facing charges of crimes against humanity in the International Criminal Court, accused of orchestrating the violence that marred the country's 2007 election. CBSNews reports, White House officials say they respect the right of Kenyans to choose their own leaders. But deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes said the U.S. also has "a commitment to accountability and justice."

It’s said that the recent Kenyan election has complicated the rapport between these two countries.
