Malik Obama is planning to follow the lead of his half-brother Barack: he’s running for public office in Kenya. Obama announced his intention to seek the governorship of the Kenyan county of Siaya, promising to fix the area’s problems “from poor infrastructure to poverty.” For a local election, this contest will feature a lot of famous
names: one of Obama’s opponents will likely be the brother of current Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga. No word so far of a smear campaign arguing Obama was secretly not born in Kenya.
