    The Nation (Nairobi)
    Kenya: Special Report: Sleepy Little Village Where Obama Traces His Own Roots

    Nairobi — His sudden rise to stardom has stunned many. Analysts toast him as one of the most brilliant and popular black politicians in the United States in recent times.

    Others taunt him as a “skinny kid with a funny name,” whose Kenyan father herded goats and lived in a remote village in Siaya, Nyanza province.

    With his cousin Yusuf Okoth Obama, when he visited his father’s home in Alego, Siaya, 10 years ago. e

    But excited admirers both in Kenya and the US celebrate him as a political superstar and a beacon of hope for his people.

    As a front runner in the United States Illinois Senate campaigns, Barack Obama Jr has raised a cloud of excitement in the international political arena.

    After delivering a well received public speech at the National Democratic Convention in Boston last month, there are some Americans who now believe he is a future candidate for the White House.

    Meanwhile, back at the ranch, as it were, in the sleepy village of Alego-Kogello where Barack Obama Snr grew up, they call the prospective Senator “Wuod Sarah”, Dholuo for “the son of Sarah”, Sarah being his foster grandmother.

    Obama’s real grand mother – the late Habiba Akumu separated with his grandfather, thus forcing Sarah to step in to care for him.

    Agitated villagers are waiting in awe. What if Obama wins the Senate seat in the November 2 elections? Will he return home with bags of dollars? Will the rocky road leading to their village be tarmacked? Will their mud-walled schools where Obama’s father and cousins once schooled be improved?

    As the US senate campaign hots up, Obama mania is sweeping through Alego.

    Villagers here now buy newspapers to read every tid bit they can find about their American kin. The rest have their ears glued to battered transistor radios to keep abreast with the latest information about Obama Jr’s political exploits.

    Everyone you meet in the area wants to be associated either with Obama Jr, his father or even distant relatives.

    Newly-born children and oxen, are being named after him. There are even suggestions that a village path leading to a local market be named after him.

    With his father, the late Barack Obama senior (second left, in glasses), his step mother Keziah (seated, left) and step brothers Malik , Sadik and sister Auma.

    To these simple villagers, news that Obama was causing a political stir in the world’s most powerful country is a miracle. “Ma en hono maduong” (this is a big miracle), says 50-year-old Martin Onyango.

    “Wamor kod wuod Sarah. Otingo’ nying Kenya malo” (We are happy with Sarah’s son, he has elevated Kenya’ name),” says Onyango as he chews sugarcane.

    Some of the people of Alego believe Obama’s rising fortunes will translate into increased employment opportunities, better roads and education opportunities. A few are even optimistic that even the dusty Nyang’oma-Kogello market will be upgraded to a big town, complete with an airstrip.

    “We don’t expect a whole Senator to drive to his home village. We expect him to fly direct and land at Nyang’oma,” says George Onyango, a 20-year-old barber.

    The prospective Senator’s sister-in-law Fauziah Anyango, wife to his step-brother Malik Obama, told the Sunday Nation that she was eager to meet her heroic in-law.

    Said she: “I have not met him but I pray that he wins the Senate seat. His victory will not be for us, but for Kenya and Africa.”

    A Sunday Nation team that set out to trace Obama’s roots was surprised to find that, unknown to many, Obama has actually been to this village twice. First in 1983, when he had come to mourn his late father, Barack Hussein Obama, who had died in Nairobi in 1982; and again in 1995 when he brought home his young bride to show her his roots.

    During both visits, the villagers paid little or no attention to him. He managed to slip quietly into the village, pray at his father’s graveyard and meet a few relatives and villagers.

    Family members told the Sunday Nation that they taught his bride how to use traditional pots (Agulu) to fetch water from a nearby stream.

    Obama Jr and his bride spent nearly a week sleeping in a tiny room in his foster grandmother’s old brick house and ate traditional foods.

    The ropes from which he hung a mosquito net at his grandmother’s house still dangle in the bedroom.

    Photographs taken during his visit to Alego and those taken during his wedding in America have filled three albums.

    In one of the photos, a slender, young Obama is seen boarding a matatu (commuter taxi) to Kisumu, from where he and his fiancee would fly to Nairobi and then back to the US.

    We were informed that Obama’s foster grandmother, Mama Sarah Ogwel, who brought up his father, had actually travelled to the US to visit several times.

    Mama Sarah told us: “He is very enthusiastic about his relatives here. He keeps on sending people to find out how we are faring.”

    And whether or not he wins the Senate seat, the 43-year-old Harvard University trained lawyer is expected back in Alego to build his “Simba” (a young man’s hut) in line with Luo traditions.

    Barack has deep roots here. He once told me he has two homes – Kenya and the United States, she says happily.

    Ever since the news of Obama’s Kenya connection was known, Mama Sarah has been receiving a stream of visitors. They now average about five a day.

    Most of these visitors are journalists, both foreign and local (like ourselves), who have turned the home upside down while tracing Obama’s roots.

    To cater for these many uninvited guests, the family is putting up a guest house just next to a house built for his father’s first wife, Keziah Obama.

    Keziah, who hails from Kendu Bay in Rachuonyo district, lives in Britain with three of her four children.

    One of her sons, Malik Obama, is a frequent visitor to the USA but is currently in Kenya though he had travelled to Nairobi when we visited.

    While she welcomes visitors, Mama Sarah is getting a little fed up with the disruption they have caused in her life.

    The day before the Sunday Nation team arrived, she had played host to a crew from CNN.

    Lamented Mama Sarah as we prepared to interview her: “I can’t live here in peace. I have been talking to visitors for several hours a day. I have been interviewed a thousand times and I am tired.”

    Tracing Obama’s home was a simple task. The home, located some 60 km from Kisumu town, is well known in Alego. Almost every villager you meet is ready to offer a tip on how to access the home.

    To reach the home, one turns off the Kisumu-Siaya road near Ng’iya shopping centre and drives towards Obama’s village market, Nyang’oma-Kogello. From there the home is just a stone’s throw-away.

    By local standards it is a vast well kept compound with Sarah’s battered brick house sitting imposingly at the far end.

    Two cemented graves, one for Barack Obama Snr and the other for his father Mzee Hussein Onyango Obama, who was born in 1870 but died in 1975.

    The Obama family are among the few Muslims in the locality.

    The prospective Senator’s grandfather was called Hussein Onyango Obama. He worked as a cook and spent most of his working life in Nairobi.

    According to Mama Sarah, Obama Jr used his two trips to Kenya to try to unravel his roots. He spoke to many villagers and relatives through an interpreter.

    The candidate’s best-selling autobiography, Dreams from my Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance, was compiled with information gathered from relatives and villagers in Alego.

    The story revolves around Obama’s quest to find out more about his father, described by many as a brilliant economist who returned from the United States to take up a civil service job in Kenya. He was was later killed in a road accident in 1982, just when he was poised to take up a top job at the Central Bank.

    According to the family, Obama’s father travelled to America to study at the University of Hawaii in 1959. While there, he worked for an oil company and married his second wife, a white woman, named Anna Toot, and their union produced Barack Obama Jr.

    Obama’s book says Obama Snr left his family in Hawaii after winning a scholarship to study in Harvard when his son was two years old.

    The marriage later broke up after Anna’s father opposed it, according to Mama Sarah.

    “Anna’s father was furious about the marriage and threatened to have Obama Snr expelled from the university. Our son sent us letters, pleading that we intervene to save the marriage,” remembers Sarah.

    Obama’s visits to Kenya

    Obama visited Kenya only twice in his life. The first time was before he, like his father, entered Harvard University. He visited his relatives in the Nyanza province, and cried at his fathers grave, even though he hardly knew him.

    The second time, in 2006, it was an official visit as US Senator. With his wife and 2 daughters, he was received at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport by the US Ambassador, Michael Rannesberger, and Obama’s Kenyan relatives. The streets were lined with massive crowds hoping to catch a glimpse of the currently only black US Senator. A spirit of Obama mania swept the nation, with Kenyans even renaming a local beer to “Obama”.

    He also visited his 85-year old grandmother in her little village of Nyangoma-Kogelo, where chicken roam free. She didn’t buy a new dress for the occasion, saying that Obama would hug her anyway. She cooked a traditional Luo meal for him with eggs, vegetables and ugali. They spoke through an interpreter, as she doesn’t speak English.

    ON ODINGA AND OBAMA….
    Super Tuesday post
    February 5, 2008
    You’d think following the politics here would be enough but people also keep up on the American election. Of course, Barack Obama’s father was Kenyan and he’s a popular figure, though the people I meet here seem skeptical that he can actually win. Obama’s heritage is Luo, the same tribe as the opposition candidate Raila Odinga, who lost the disputed election. The oft-repeated joke here is America will have a Luo president before Kenya does. A few people have written to ask if Obama’s family is causing all the trouble in Kenya. The short answer is no.

    The longer answer is also no. Kenya seems to have quieted down quite a bit, knock wood. But the trouble here was caused by a small number of people from diverse tribes. In the sort of overreaching statement that Kenyan politicians sometimes indulge, Odinga said he was Obama’s cousin. I haven’t heard of any confirmation from the Obama camp.
    (I also heard that Obama is related to Odinga too!)

    Christianity vs Muslim: Obama Step-Grandmother To Decide
    A Protestant church in Kenya is trying to convert US President Barack Obama’s step-grandmother to Christianity against her will, a Muslim group said Monday, condemning the move as provocation.

    The Seventh Day Adventist church in the western town of Kisumu had invited 87-year-old Sarah Obama — a Muslim — to a function on Saturday, where she was allegedly to be baptised.

    According to relatives in her village of Kogelo, “Mama Sarah”, as she is popularly known in the US president’s paternal homeland, was surprised by the offer and declined to attend.

    “I regret the attempt by the Christian religion to force her to convert,” Sheikh Mohamed Khalifa, the organising secretary of the Council of Imams and Preachers of Kenya, told AFP.

    “Why only her? Why not before Obama became president? Didn’t they see her before he became president? We are ready to protect our religion,” he said.

    Said Obama, a step-brother to the US president, said the church pastors had approached Sarah Obama with news that she could become a Christian.

    “Mama (Sarah) was born a Muslim and wishes to die a Muslim. The issue of conversion is neither here not there,” he said.

    Khalifa denounced the move as a “provocation.”

    “They don’t have permission from Jesus to convert someone. I challenge them to quote a verse from the Bible allowing them to convert someone,” he said.

    Sarah became a national celebrity when her grandson visited the country in 2006 and her modest homestead has become a tourist attraction since the former Illinois senator’s November 2008 election triumph.

    The Kenyan government last month declared Kogelo a protected national heritage site.

    Second gentleman from right is MARK NDESANDJO, half brother from third wife of the president’s father.
    His last name is different because his mother RUTH NDESANDJO had a

    Obama’s Half Brother Far From Spotlight
    President-Elect’s Intensely Private Half Brother Lives In China

    SHENZHEN, China, Jan. 16, 2009

    Mark Ndesandjo, the intensely private half brother of President-elect Barack Obama, plays the piano to raise money for orphans during a charity concert in Shenzhen, southern China, Friday, Jan. 16, 2009. (AP Photo/Kin Cheung)

    Obama’s Low-Key Brother

    Barack Obama’s half-brother Mark Ndesandjo, who lives in China, doesn’t name drop.

    (AP) The news release didn’t say who Mark Ndesandjo was. Nor did the posters and e-mails promoting the concert Friday in this southern Chinese boomtown where he played piano to raise money for orphans.

    But the 200 or so people who showed up for the fundraiser at a posh hotel resort knew the man in a Chinese-style brown silk shirt was the half brother of President-elect Barack Obama. They had a rare encounter with Ndesandjo, who has been dodging the media since his family ties were made public last summer.

    For the past seven years, Ndesandjo has been living in Shenzhen, a freewheeling city just across the border from Hong Kong. The announcement for his piano concert identified him as a strategic marketing consultant. He also helped start a chain of eateries in China called Cabin BBQ.

    Ndesandjo has a thin mustache, shaved head and a gold stud in his left earlobe. He slightly resembles his half brother, and shares the same trim, athletic physique. He speaks Mandarin, is a vegetarian and practices Chinese calligraphy.

    And he said Friday that he has just finished a novel called “Nairobi to Shenzhen,” but as yet has no publisher.

    Ndesandjo apparently wants a low-key life separate from Obama. No one mentioned his family when he was introduced at the charity concert and cocktail party sponsored by the American Chamber of Commerce in South China.

    During brief remarks on stage, Ndesandjo mentioned that he would visit the U.S. in a couple days, apparently to attend Tuesday’s presidential inauguration. He said if he didn’t make the trip in time, he would embarrass his family.

    And he told the crowd that chamber president, Harley Seyedin, was fond of the president-elect. Ndesandjo added, “I like my president, too!” That was the closest he came to mentioning Barack Obama.

    Ndesandjo’s reluctance to play up his famous relative is extremely unusual in China, where people commonly name drop and use their connections to advance their interests. In China, relationships, or “guanxi,” with powerful people are golden and rarely wasted in winning new business or opening other doors.

    As his Chinese wife watched, Ndesandjo began his performance with a Chinese tune called “Liuyang River” followed by what he said was “Chopin’s First Nocturne.” His third and final piece was a jazz tune by Fats Waller called “Viper’s Drag.”

    He played with passion, at times hunched over the keyboard or rocking back with his eyes closed and lips slightly parted in expressions of ectasy and agony.

    His Chinese friend and restaurant business partner, Sui Zhenjun, said he has known Ndesandjo since he arrived in China in 2002.

    “But it wasn’t until July when media reports started surfacing about him being related to Obama that I found out they were related,” he told The Associated Press. “He called and told me.”

    Ndesandjo declined to answer questions from the AP at Friday’s concert. He wouldn’t confirm basic details about his past or discuss his relationship with Obama.

    He uses the surname of his mother, Ruth, the third wife of his father, who died in 1982. He was born in Kenya and moved to the United States when he was a child.

    Footage from a Chinese TV news show posted on Youtube shows him practicing calligraphy at home and teaching children how to play the piano, praising them in Mandarin and English.

    On Friday, he said he had visited a Shenzhen orphanage shortly after arriving in China and saw rows and rows of sleeping babies while a harried staff of two nurses tried to care for them.

    “One child with big black eyes seized my finger and would not let it go,” he told the crowd.

    After the charity event, Ndesandjo chatted with friends and shook hands as he slowly walked out of the venue pursued by journalists hoping for a comment. He slipped into an elevator and continued to ignore questions as the door slowly closed.

    BERNARD OBAMA,OBAMA’S BROTHER APPEARS IN THIS ARTICLE:

    THE SUN (LONDON),2008

    Obama’s brother is in Bracknell

    By OLIVER HARVEY
    Chief Feature Writer

    Published: 26 Jul 2008
    Add a comment Add a comment (95)
    HE may be living in a Bracknell council house, but soon he could be dining with his brother at the White House.

    The Sun was the first newspaper to track down and speak to Bernard Obama, 37.

    And he said of Democrat candidate Barack: “I’m very proud of my big brother.

    Back Row L-R: Unknown, Barack Obama, Obama’s half-brother Malik, Unknown, half-brother Abo, half-brother Bernard. Front Row L-R: Half-sister Auma, step-mother Kezia, step-gran Sarah,

    “It’s quite a funny feeling that he might be the next President of the USA.”

    Muslim Bernard – an avid Manchester United fan and Sun reader – is staying with his bingo-loving mum Kezia, 67, who has lived in the Berkshire new town for six years.

    He was glued to the TV news in the modest suburban bungalow last night as Barack, 46, was due to arrive in Britain.

    Bernard leads a quiet life, running a car parts firm in Nairobi, Kenya.

    But he is a regular visitor to the UK to visit Elvis fan Kezia.

    Barack Obama

    She married Barack Obama Snr in Kenya in 1957 when she was a teenager.

    He later left for the US and went on to meet Ann Dunham, who gave birth to his now widely acclaimed son.

    Obama Snr, a Kenyan goatherd who became a leading economist in his east African homeland’s government, was killed in a car crash in 1982.

    Barack Jnr was 21 and Bernard 12. He said: “Our father passed away when I was young and I didn’t get the chance to get to know him very well.

    “When you lose your dad at such a young age, that’s when you really miss him.”

    Bernard smiled when he spoke of his famous half-brother. He said:

    Open Quote

    I was around 17 when I first met Barack.

    He was visiting Kenya and it was obvious from the way he spoke and his charisma that he was going to be a success.

    He is charming, very good company and very charismatic.

    I’ve met him since with his wife Michelle in Kenya. She’s very nice, a very strong and intelligent person. I don’t think we will see him on this visit to Britain. It’s official business and he’ll be very busy.Close_quote

    Bernard is remaining with Kezia for the next month as she recuperates from illness.

    Advertisement
    Quantcast

    Barefoot and dressed in cream shorts and red T-shirt, he said: “I love coming to Britain because I love football and I like reading about it in The Sun.
    Converted

    “I’m a big Manchester United fan but I think Barack’s more into basketball.”

    Bernard converted to Islam 18 years ago. The dad of one said: “I’m a Muslim, I don’t deny it. My father was raised a Muslim.

    “But it’s not an issue. I don’t know what all the hullabaloo is about.”

    Barack is a staunch Christian. A recent cartoon in the New Yorker magazine caused a furore by portraying him as a turban-wearing Muslim and his wife as a terrorist.

    In February, photos emerged of Barack in traditional Somali robes during a trip to Kenya in 2006.

    But Bernard dismissed jibes about Barack’s religion and said there was no significance to the photos.

    Barack Obama’s stepmother Kezia

    He added: “If you go to Japan or Nigeria you put on the traditional dress. People are trying to look for ways to tarnish him.”

    In his biography, Dreams From My Father, Barack told of meeting Bernard in Kenya.

    He wrote: “That sweetness, the lack of guile, made him seem much younger than his 17 years.

    “As we stepped into the street, Bernard draped his arm over my shoulder. ‘It’s good to have a big brother around,’ he said, before waving goodbye and vanishing into the crowd.”

    The pair’s dad left Kenya in 1959 when he took up a US scholarship. Kezia, then three months’ pregnant with daughter Auma, already had a year-old son Malik to look after.

    Barack Snr met Barack’s mum Ann in Hawaii, and she gave birth to the now presidential hopeful in August 1961.

    The Democrat’s dad returned to Kenya in 1965 and Kezia subsequently gave birth to two sons, Abo in 1968 and Bernard in 1970.
    Raunchy

    Barack’s former brother-in-law Ian Manners, 55 – divorced from Bernard’s and Barack’s sister Auma – is writing a book about his in-laws.

    Daughter Akinyi, 11, spent Christmas with Barack in the US. She said: “I asked him if I could meet Beyonce. He smiled and said he’d see what he could do.”

    Barack Obama and wife Michelle with Ian’s sister Diane Meisl and nephew Julian Meisl at Ian and Auma’s wedding reception in Wokingham in August, 1996.

    Barack attended Ian’s 1996 wedding to Auma and famously ran out of a pub in Wokingham, Berks, during Ian’s stag bash when a raunchy dancer took to the stage.

    Businessman Ian said: “We were having a few drinks, then a stripper dressed as a St Trinian’s schoolgirl appeared.

    “She was no Miss World and it was the last thing I wanted. As soon as Barack saw what was about to happen he made a hasty retreat.

    “He was in politics already and left the pub immediately.”

    Ian added: “I played a couple of rounds of golf with him in 1997.

    “We had to go to a municipal course because golf clubs wouldn’ t have been keen on a black man playing on their course back then.

    “He is very competitive and beat me both times. It was obvious Barack was going to get to the top.”

    Bernard agreed, saying: “Barack is going to win the election, definitely, and I want to be in the US for his inauguration.

    “He will be a breath of fresh air for the world.”
