BEST OF KENYA

Small Village - to - Global Village, The White House and The World. The father of America’s 44th President, Barack Hussein Obama, came from an obscure rural Kenyan village ‘NYANG’OMA-KOGELO’ – now known by both Kenyans and the world. This is where Barack Hussein Obama ‘Senior’ was born, lived, and was buried. When Barack Obama, then the junior senator from Illinois, visited Kogelo in 2006, it was a sleepy, little-known village in the Nyanza Province of Kenya, home of the Luo community whose eminent sons include the Prime Minister, Raila Odinga.
