‘The president then asked what was her job and Kim, very politely, said that she had a TV show with sisters and family and they were all waiting for her return.’

In the meeting the reality star and her rapper husband presented the leader with a pair of autographed sneakers from Kanye’s popular Yeezy line.

Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni gave both Kanye and Kim Ugandan names, Uganda’s State House said on Facebook, with Kanye being named Kanyesigye, which is defined as ‘I trust;’ and Kim being named Kemigisha‘ which translates to ‘the one with blessings from God.

Museveni also took to Twitter to commemorate the visit, writing: ‘I welcome American entertainment stars Kanye West and @KimKardashian to Uganda,’ noting that he ‘held fruitful discussions with the duo on how to promote Uganda’s tourism and the arts.

The President also quizzed them on how many kids they have, Kanye got right to it. ‘We have three. I would like to have seven,’ said West.

Kim and Kanye jetted to the East African Nation over the weekend with their daughter North for a vacation in one of the country’s national parks.
