From Al Jazeera:

Hillary Clinton, the US secretary of state, has arrived in Kenya as part of an African tour to push her government's commitment to tackling the continent's trouble spots.

The seven-nation trip comes three weeks after Barack Obama, the US president, visited Ghana in an effort to bolster ties with the nation.

Clinton kicked off her 11-day tour from Kenya, which is struggling to overcome political and tribal divisions exposed in post-election violence in early 2008.

She is due to address an African trade and development forum comprising 40 states and meet top Kenyan officials in talks beginning on Wednesday.

H: So what'd you do today?

B: You know...Used my juice as a former president to save some imprisoned journalists from North Korea. You?

H: Went to Kenya. Trying to help out a continent of people in trouble. Africa's important and they really need our help, you know?
