Also waiting on the red carpet was his Kenyan half-sister Auma who, according to his autobiography, was late to meet him during his first visitto his father’s birthplace in 1987, and drove him to her home in a clapped-out Volkswagen Beetle.

On this occasion, she was on time and dressed smartly in a white Chanel jacket, and was invited to join the 44th President of the United States in his armour-plated limousine that has been named The Beast for its ability to withstand virtually everything but a nuclear attack, for the 20-minute trip in to the city.

Before they departed, Mr Obama, 53, sat at a mahogany desk carried onto the tarmac along with a red velvet chair to sign a visitor’s book.

Meanwhile along the Mombasa Road to the airport, a thoroughfare usually clogged with traffic from dawn until dusk but last night eerily empty of cars, American flags fluttered in a faint breeze.
