Kenya police ban Obama's grandmother from giving interviews that may jeopardise victory 11/4

Censuring Obama’s grandmother: She is being censured by the police so that she does not say anything - a slip of a tongue may occur - that may reveal the identity and birth place of her grandson. If she were to say something in the line of - another citizenship, or that he was born in Kenya or Hawaii and adopted by a foreigner, and Obama is elected, that may create a constitutional crisis in the US because that will open for lawsuits to ensure Obama is not sworn in as President.

This is a big surprise for the old woman who loves to talk to the local and international media about her grandson who may take over as the first black ruler in America. The Kenya police must have been instructed by the highest offices in the land to stop her from giving interviews between now and the election day.

The report says she will be allowed to speak to the media on the 5th of November - a presumption that she will be telling the media of the grandson’s victory in America. It is understood that she has assembled a delegation of 30 people and tickets already paid for in order to travel to the US on the 6th of November to attend what they say will be Obama’s victory celebration. This is like counting chicken before the eggs hatch.

Kenya: Obama’s family halts media interviews

Nairobi (Kenya) - The Kenya family of US Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama has halted all media engagements until after the US presidential election on November 4.

The move has been taken to give Obama’s paternal grandmother, Mama Sarah Onyango Obama a break, according to a family member Mr Said Obama. In the recent past, a battery of local and international journalists have been visiting the home on a daily basis to seek interviews from the 85-year old granny.

But Mr Said Obama said the family would open up to the media on November 5, a day after the elections.

And on Wednesday, Siaya District police chief Mr Johnston Ipara said security officers would restrict entry to the home to ensure the family privacy is guaranteed

“People who visit the family’s home in K’Ogelo will be restrained from conducting interviews to the family members,” he said

Mr Ipara added the move was taken to ensure that people, especially the media, do not pre-empt the outcome of the US elections by using comments from the family members.

“We do not want Mama Sarah Obama to be disturbed at the moment she needs time to monitor the elections as they unfold,” said Ipara.

He said all visitors to the home would be thoroughly screened by the police before being allowed in.

Meanwhile, Obamamania continued to grip Kisumu town and its environs as hawkers cashed in on the craze to sell branded T-shirts, caps and badges.

Dancehalls have also recorded a high number of songs recorded in vernacular languages in praise of the US presidential candidate whose father was Kenyan.

Why are you posting 2 day old crap as breaking news?

Why are you posting API at all?

Actually, they shut her up quite some time ago. Obama spoke to her and she changed her accounts to the press, and then disappeared from sight just like the white grandmother.

But I don’t trust API on anything, unfortunately.

"...ruler in America."

Funny. I always thought those we elect to office were our servants, not our rulers?

It seems like all of Obama’s associates are off limits. Ayers, Khalidi, the aunt, the grandmother and on it goes. No interviews by any of them.

She would be an international celebrity and her family would be financially set for generations to come. obama is a very disturbing individual, he can't defend his own family? Even a word?

“Why are you posting 2 day old crap as breaking news?”

You know...there are some of us who never read this, even through it’s all of two days old!

Why complain?

Perhaps you should use your negative ways and complaints for more serious stuff...like Barack Obama, Acorn and voter fraud....

now get busy...lol!

Because it doesn't belong in breaking as it pushes legitimate breaking news out of the top stories box. (Its been dumped out of there now by the mods)

Posting $hit from API takes away from the "serious stuff." Anyone who buys into their garbage should send their bank account info to the next Nigerian email request.

This post may not have its facts right.

Yesterday---posted here--- was an article that said the relatives had tired of being pestered by the press and had asked the police to keep the press at bay. There were interviews of the (I believe) uncle Obama saying that the family wanted privacy and would speak to the press after the election if asked.

There are two stories out there now to account for the press blackout.

Why can’t “journalists” use English?

The proper word is Censored, not Censured.

Censored means the government is shutting you up.

Censured means a (usually) Legislature has passed a motion to reprimand you.

Obama’s relative is being Censored, not Censured.

Jeez.

You’ve been censured for buying into a story where the facts are disputed. Shame on you.

Maybe they want the old woman to maintain the secrecy Obama has always held about his father's family.

As Andy Martin relates it in Obama: The Man Behind the Mask:

"Barack Obama was conceived in the licentiousness of a bigamous "marriage". He has carried the burden of his lack of legitimacy throughout his life. No one knows for sure, except Barack, when he first learned that his father was a rake, a fraud and a bigamist."

"The truths that Barack eventually had to accept about his father were extremely painful ones: (1)His father came to Hawaii as a married man with a family in Kenya; (2)He claims to have entered into some sort of void and bigamous marriage with Ann Dunham. That marriage was absolutely a nullity under Hawaiian law. (3)He dumped his wife and son and went to Harvard, where he began yet another affair, eventually leading to another bigamous "marriage". (4)Obama, Senior, a product of the war for Kenyan independence in the Mau Mau era, returned home to Kenya where he never became part of the future leadership of his homeland. Instead, he took refuge in alcohol, licentiousness and anger."

Hope it isn't too "racist" to post what would be common knowledge to every American if Obama were a Republican, but since he's the media's "chosen one" hardly anyone knows.

Is this the G’ma that partook or was *there* at the birthing of Barry in Kenya? (His mother too pregnant to fly to Hawaii until after the Kenya birth?)

Sorry, but children of a bigamous marriage have never been considered illegitimate.

"Sorry, but children of a bigamous marriage have never been considered illegitimate."

According to Hawaii law there is no marriage.

That makes any child illegitimate.
