President of the United States of America, Joe Biden, has revealed plans to visit Africa in February if re-elected.

The president made this known on Wednesday when he welcomed Kenyan President William Ruto to the White House for a two-day meeting and a state dinner. He said, “I plan on going in February after I am re-elected.”

Senior administration officials said Biden and Ruto would discuss several issues, including trade, debt relief, and the situations in Haiti, Ukraine, and Sudan.

Last November, during a meeting with the Angolan President, Joao Lourenco, Biden hinted at a possible visit to Angola, though he did not specify a date.

The U.S. National Security Adviser, Jake Sullivan, told reporters that Biden was keen on visiting Africa as President but had not made a formal announcement.

Despite highlighting Africa’s importance in global matters, Biden has not yet visited the continent. However, more than two dozen senior officials from his administration, including Vice President Kamala Harris, have visited various African countries.

Biden, a Democrat, is campaigning for another term in the November 5 election against his Republican opponent and former President, Donald Trump.
