Expect heavy traffic as Maggie tours Melania around the city

The Five Places Melania Trump Will Visit in Nairobi

"Meeting those children and understanding their different way of life is why I wanted to travel here", Melania said during her visit.

Trump is advocating for children's welfare as part of her "Be Best" campaign during her first worldwide solo tour as first lady.

She took to twitter to say "Thank you #Ghana!"

The US First Lady laughed after one of the baby elephants made a sudden move and she momentarily lost her footing.

But if the comments appear to have bothered the First Lady she didn't it show it as she toured outdoor classrooms at Chipala Primary School in Lilongwe, which receives assistance from the US Agency for International Development.

First Lady Melania Trump visits the Chipala Primary School in Lilongwe on October 4, 2018.

I am very excited to have the opportunity to visit Malawi and better understand how our countries can continue working together for a prosperous future.

A statement to newsrooms from the Presidential Strategic Communications Unit (PSCU) said Mrs Trump, who landed on Thursday night, will first visit the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust accompanied by her Kenyan counterpart Margaret Kenyatta.

However, Phiri said the protesters could have done better, observing that the timing of their actions did not tally with the work the United States first lady came to do in the country.

"We see, first hand, in Malawian hospitals, the shocking effect the budget cuts may ultimately have". Upon her departure, the first lady gifted children with dozens of "Be Best" soccer balls, tote bags and school supplies.

But a few signs of protest were afoot, too, as President Trump is not widely seen as a friend of Africa.

The event was to "highlight friendly US-Malawi relations" and the pair's "shared interest in helping children and, in particular, helping girls in school", according to the White House.
