US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has arrived in Senegal’s capital Dakar on her way to Malawi. Her 11 day African tour will also take her South Sudan, Uganda, Kenya, South Africa and Ghana. Clintons visit is historical as it is the most high profile visit of a US government official in many years.

Malawi is on its knees begging for funds as it is not able to feed it’s own people. The Malawi government believes in begging and so it is trying it’s best to beg from the US, UK and many western countries.

The purpose of Clinton visit is not clear and the full program has not been disclosed. Clintons term in office runs out in November, some analysts argue that her African visit is more symbolic and have no substance as she is on her way out.

Hillary Clinton’s tour also includes a private meeting with South Africa’s anti-apartheid leader Nelson Mandela, now 94, in his hometown of Qunu.

Her last stop will be Ghana, where she will attend the 10 August state funeral for the country’s late president, John Atta Mills, who died last week.
