President Barack Obamas half-brother, Abongo Malik Obama, wont be the second member of his family to launch a political career. Mr. Obama was defeated in his bid to be governor of Kenyas Siaya County this week by what seems to have been a very large margin.
Mr. Obama is the eldest child of President Obamas father. They have different mothers. Mr. Obama served as the best man at the presidents wedding to Michelle Obama in 1992.
According to the Daily Nation newspaper in Nairobi, the Siaya gubernatorial race was won by Cornel Rasanga with William Oduol coming in second. The Daily Nation did not report Mr. Obama totals, however the Kenyan Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission, which oversaw the elections and has been releasing sporadically updated results since Kenyans headed to the polls Monday, published a partial count that showed him in third place with just a little over one percent of the initial vote. Three other candidates trailed behind Mr. Obama. A call from Politicker to the IEBC Election Hotline this morning to inquire about the full count for the Siaya gubernatorial election went unanswered.
Siaya is one of 47 counties that were created in the the 2010 Constitution of Kenya, which was ratified after the 2007 presidential elections there ended with violence that left over 1,000 people dead and a disputed result. This years race had few violent incidents, but it was not without controversy. There were technical glitches at polling stations throughout the country. Though all the votes have not been counted the two members of the ticket headed towards a likely victory in the presidential election, Uhuru Kenyatta and his running mate William Ruto, have both been charged by the International Criminal Court with crimes against humanity for allegedly orchestrating the violence that followed the last elections. The United States and other Western nations have vowed there will be unspecified consequences for Kenya if Mr. Kenyatta emerges victorious.
In an interview with Politicker on Tuesday, Mr. Obama said there was initially a blackout with no information released about the election results in Siaya. Because of delay, Mr. Obama said he believed there was a high risk that the results may be manipulated.
Mr. Obama was running as an independent candidate. The winner of the race, Mr. Rasanga, is a member of one of Kenyas major political parties, the Orange Democratic Movement, or ODM. Mr. Oduol, who came in second, belongs to the National Agenda Party of Kenya.
As of this writing, Mr. Obama has not responded to requests to comment on the results of his race and whether he believes they are legitimate. Our last communication with him came via text message Tuesday afternoon as the official results were still coming in.
Am number three so far, Mr. Obama wrote.
Obama's Half-Brother Crushed in Kenya Election...
Guess the voter fraud unit in the Dem Party has not arrived there as yet.
Wow, who would have guessed that low information voters don’t seem to exist in Kenya.
Wasn’t Odinga losing the national election and began complaining.
Wait, I demand a recount. Surely, 99-100% of those villages voted for Obama.
"Fourth from last."
And The Jokes Just Write Themselves...
I am jealous I don't live in Kenya right now..
Well duh, he didn’t have Romney to run against.
Doesn't everyone have a relative they supposedly have seen only once or twice in their lives and barely knew as their best man?
This isn’t the Obama brother that lives in a cardboard box on $1 a month, is it?
They aren’t lucky.
They are smarter than Americans.
Look at me. Look at me riding a horse. Look at these tax cuts. Now look back at me! This is me lowering spending!
“This isnt the Obama brother that lives in a cardboard box on $1 a month, is it?”
No... this is the other one that lives in a cardboard box on $2 a month.
Damn, how many pups did his daddy sire, anyway...
Kenyans tell Americans: Obama for thee but not for me.
Is Obama going to send in the thugs with machetes as he did last time?
Obama’d probably send both of ‘em a couple bucks, but, y’know, Sequester being what it is and all...
America, are you smarter than the majority of Kenyans?
Bronco Bama has relatives in Kenya?
There is every reason to believe that the Current Occupant of the White Hut is not the genetic descendent of Barack Hussein Obama the Senior, but is in actuality the son of some domestic resident of the United States who happened to be of African origin. I, for one, would like to see some DNA evidence.
In fact, The One might not even be the son of Stanley Ann Dunham, but the half-brother. Daddy Stanley could have produced an illegitimate child with the co-operation of a mother of the African persuasion, and palmed the child off as the “child” of his daughter and some poor dupe of a foreign-study graduate student (already married in his own country, and therefore a bigamist, maybe a polygamist). The child was actually born, unregistered, in the Seattle area, and spirited into Hawaii, where the birth was then registered under false documantation.
The only thing we may be sure of, is that there are now no living witnesses, and others who may have been in on the secret of the true genesis of this major imposter are either not talking, or have been artifically silenced.
“Obamad probably send both of em a couple bucks, but, yknow, Sequester being what it is and all...”
Helping out his family never entered Obamas mind.
Unnecessary step. He need never have been in Hawaii to have his birth registered there.
Well yeah, there is that...
It embarrassingly seems that a bunch of Kenyan voters are infinitely smarter than the dregs here in this country we grudgingly have to call Americans.
I’m just here for the replies. Thanks!
Maybe we should let the Kenyans elect our next POTUS.
They seem to have better judgment.
Now that Odumbo has extra unused rooms downstairs in the White Hut, he can move the drunken uncle, the illegal aunt,the wanna be politician bro and the other bro in with him and Moochelle and her mother.
“Now that Odumbo has extra unused rooms downstairs in the White Hut, he can move the drunken uncle, the illegal aunt,the wanna be politician bro and the other bro in with him and Moochelle and her mother.”
Obama is too self-absorbed to be that kind.
They needed some Al Franken cars full of ballots to push him over the top and into the White Hut.
They found out he wasn’t the natural born Kenyan.
