Obama in Africa.What should he address?

obama2A week from now President Obama will make his first visit to Africa(Sub Saharan). He will be in Ghana on July 10-11. Besides discussing bilateral issues with the Ghanian President John Atta Mills he is expeced to give a speech to the whole of Africa. The out going US ambassador to Uganda told the media yesterday that President Obama will adress issues of corruption and governance. But I think Africans also would like to hear more regarding Obama’s plans on trade, conflicts like Somalia, DRC, Darfur. I believe his trip to Ghana should be given attention by the west just like they did with the Cairo speech. I would like to know what you think should be the center of his Africa policy.
