President Obama's sibling running for office in Kenya
By Jim Kouri

Malik Obama, President Barack Obama's half-brother, announced Sunday that he is seeking election to the governorship of Siaya, Kenya.

Barack's older brother announced his candidacy as an independent candidate beholding to none of the establishment political parties in that African nation, which has experienced violence by Islamists against Christians. Malik and many other Obama family members are Muslims, although there exists no evidence of their involvement in radical Islam.

Kenyans will head to the polls on March 4 to elect a new president and parliament as well as regional representatives, according to Zimbio.

Violence related to the election has already erupted this year, however. Abbas Gullet, the head of the Kenya Red Cross, warned that about 200 people have already died in pre-election violence.

It's widely known that hundreds of Kenyan youths and foreigners who have joined Somalia-based terrorist group Al Shabaab, an ally of al-Qaeda, secretly entered Kenya in order to carryout terrorist attacks on Christian churches and public assembly facilities in Nairobi and Mombasa.

According to best-selling author Ed Klein in a World Net Daily news story, since his inauguration, President Obama's family in Kenya has been on a mission to use the Obama name to transform Kenya from the nation's current Christian majority to an Islamic majority that will spread Islamic law, or Shariah, throughout the country.

Klein's article claims the Kenyan Obama family members are devout fundamentalist Muslims known as Wahhabists, although there are no reports of membership in the al-Qaeda-affiliate Al Shabaab. Wahhabism originated in Saudi Arabia and is considered extremist by many Muslims.

In 2010, Malik was outed as a polygamist when he married a woman who was over 30 years his junior.

Although having two other wives, the 53-year-old Malik wed 19-year-old Sheila Anyango despite protests from the girl's family.

Malik's new mother-in-law Mary Aoko Ouma told the British media she is furious her daughter quit school to get married to the much older man.
