Reuters | Great news: Obama’s half-brother running for office

KOGELO, Kenya (Reuters) – U.S. President Barack Obama’s message of hope and change has inspired his half-brother Malik to launch a political career of his own, with his eye on elections in Kenya in March.

"If my brother is doing great things for people in the United States, why can’t I do great things for Kenyans here?" Malik Obama told Reuters in the village of Kogelo, President Obama’s ancestral homeland.

Malik, 54, is running for governorship of the rural Siaya county as an independent candidate.
