President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama pictured above with Paul Kagame, President of the Republic of Rwanda, and his daughter, Ange Kagame.  Ange's height caused quite a stir on social media (in a good way). How gorgeous is she, Bantu?! She looks so graceful.



On Monday 4th August, US President Barack Obama hosted a three day US-Africa Leaders Summit. The gathering took place in Washington D.C. with African Heads of  State in attendance.
The summit's objective was to strengthen ties between the United States and Africa, one of the world’s most dynamic and fastest growing regions.

It is about time we put a face to the title, here are some of the African leaders posing with the Obamas:
