Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan at the weekend stormed Kenya’s Maasai Mara Games Reserve in two chartered planes. KOne of the planes carried Kenya State security and the second was occupied by Jonathan, his wife Patience and two of their children.
According to the Nation, he is at the reserve for a three-day tour to witness the wildebeest migration.
Jonathan was booked at the new Angama Mara Lodge at the Oloololo conservancy,and was received by Narok Governor Samuel Tunai.
Tunai, who is also the Council of Governors tourism committee chairman, said more than 500,000 tourists from all over the world are expected to witness the spectacular crossing of wildebeest across the crocodile-infested Mara River.
Jonathan, who refused to speak with reporters on his arrival to the reserve, according to Kenya media, is the second dignitary to visit the reserve in less than a fortnight after the King of Swasiland, Mswati III. The king was booked in the same lodge six days ago.
