Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is about to go on her first major trip abroad to seven countries in Africa, according to CNN.com.
Clinton will start off in Accra, Ghana, talking about many of the issues brought about by President Obama during his trip three weeks ago. She will then head to Nairobi, Kenya, at the U.S.-Sub-Saharan Africa Trade and Economic Cooperation Forum on Wednesday. Then it’s off to South Africa where she will meet with their new President Jacob Zuma and discuss how the U.S. can help with their economic pressures and social issues. Next it’s off to Angola, which supplies much of America’s need for petroleum and liquified natural gas. One of the more troubled places on her itinerary is the Democratic Republic of Congo in Central Africa, where she will meet face-to-face with some of the country’s war victims. She will also make stops in Nigeria, Liberia and Cape Verde before heading back home.—WLW
