There’s another possibility for who that 1961 birth in Kenya might be: A recent biography of Barack Sr. quoted a friend of his, in Kenya, who reported that Sr. was outraged to learn that his wife Kezia, back in Kenya, became pregnant by another man while he was in Hawaii. This happened shortly before, according to the friend, he gave up on that marriage to Kezia and sought a new wife—that being Ann (according to the tale told in the book). Kezia, if she continued with her pregnancy, would have given birth in 1961, after he married Ann, if he did marry her. The biographer mentions the pregnancy but not its eventual resolution. Would Kezia’s child be considered Sr.’s child, because he was her husband of record? We know that Mboya was corresponding with Sr., back in Hawaii, about his wife in Kenya. Just a few more “facts” to throw into the mix.

That would be true in the US. Yet, this was a hearsay account 50 years after the fact and, IIRC, the elder gentleman seems to have wanted to put the best spin on the Stanley Ann marriage for the sake of the reputation of his friend who we know was a beast.

There is no evidence yet of such a child, but this possibility is a reason why the original records in the BNA need to be revealed.
