Obama's Half Brother Recalls Their Abusive Father
November 3, 2009
China (AP) -- President Barack Obama's half brother has broken his media silence to discuss his new novel -- the semi-autobiographical story of an abusive parent patterned on their late father, the mostly absent figure Obama wrote about in his own memoir.
In his first interview, Mark Ndesandjo told The Associated Press that he wrote ''Nairobi to Shenzhen'' in part to raise awareness of domestic violence.
''My father beat my mother and my father beat me, and you don't do that,'' said Ndesandjo, whose mother, Ruth Nidesand, was Barack Obama Sr.'s third wife. ''It's something which I think affected me for a long time, and it's something that I've just recently come to terms with.''
Like his novel's main character, Ndesandjo had an American mother who is Jewish and who divorced his Kenyan father. The novel, which goes on sale Wednesday by the self-publishing company Aventine Press, is one of several books in the works by relatives of the president.
President Obama's parents separated two years after he was born in Hawaii in 1961. The senior Obama, a Kenyan exchange student, divorced the president's mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, in 1964 and had at least six other children in his native Kenya.
For the past seven years, Ndesandjo has been living in the booming southern Chinese city of Shenzhen, near Hong Kong (snip).
Ndesandjo, who said he attended Obama's inauguration as a family guest, declined to discuss his earliest memories of the president or describe their relationship over the years. However, he said he plans to meet his brother in Beijing when the president makes his first visit to China on Nov. 15-18.
''My plan is to introduce my wife to him. She is his biggest fan,'' he said.

aw, a sympathy spot?
Obama gets his a*s kicked in NJ and VA and this story comes out. The poor usurper/illegal alien was beaten by Lo Lo Soetero. What a FU weirdo “family.”
Obama never met his father, except for 1 time when he was about 10. The story about him living with his Father until good old Dad went to Harvard is BS.
I love The Beating These Commie Pricks are Getting Right Now and The Comeing Whale of a Whacking They are Gonna Get!
It sounds like Obama didn’t miss out on much when his father took off.
Last two dem presidents have been products of broken homes.
Notice that statement wasn't in quotation marks? Obama Senior left Hawaii on the 22nd June, 1962.
If zero was born in August 1961, how old would he have been when his 'father' left?
It's way past time for all the 'journalists' to stop following the timeline of 'Dreams'.
“declined to discuss his earliest memories of the president or describe their relationship over the years”
No one will discuss his early years.
Mark Ndesandjo, The Obammunist's half brother, keeps out of sight until allowed to surface by his handlers, now lives in Red China.
“In Kenya, Obama Sr. also had four children with his first wife, Kezia, some of them while he was still married to Nidesand. Nidesand and Obama Sr. eventually divorced amid allegations of domestic abuse. Nidesand returned to the United States and later married a man whose surname Mark Ndesandjo took.”
Or, AP, it appears obvious that Obama Sr had BHO II and the Nidesand boys in not one but two bigamous marriages while he was still married to Kezia!!! How hard is it for a worldwide news organization like AP to investigate whether BHO Sr was ever divorced from Kezia? Kezia is still alive living in the UK and gave interview to the Daily Mail where she claimed that she never divorced BHO Sr and that he was a bigamist! BTW, a bigamous marriage would negate any Obama dual citizenship under the 1948 BNA the way I read it.
“Last two dem presidents have been products of broken homes.”
So was Jerry Ford. Reagan’s dad was essentially an absent drunk, so what.
BO's father was Muslin; they are allowed 4 wives if they can support them.
Perhaps "the newspaper of record" can produce a bona fide Birth Certificate to prove it. But that's a bit too much to ask of them now that they've become the newspaper of lies, fraud, and cover-ups.
The lie again. His parents quite likely separated just before, or just after his birth. Assuming they were ever together to be able to separate.
Both have authority complexes. I hope Obama can act out against Dad without destroying our capialist economy.
