Example text

Here is the entrance to the Obama home. There are several homes here. It is a big home because the children are many. This one is Joshua Aginga’s home. He was the third son of Obama Opiyo. …” Charles continued telling me an extraordinary history of the Obama family as he guided me through what was only a small part of the homestead. My mind reeled as he recited, in extraordinary detail, the family history—husbands with four or ve wives, a dozen children, brothers, cousins, and uncles … The complexity of the family tree was mind-boggling.

I asked Charles how many journalists had come to Kendu Bay. He tensed noticeably at the question. “Very few. Very, very few. They all go to K’ogelo. ” “But there is very little to see in K’ogelo, and so many more Obamas are living here,” I said. ” Charles looked rueful and said nothing. A couple of months later, when I joined the family to watch the presidential inauguration on television, I began to understand the real reasons for the press’s interest in K’ogelo rather than Kendu Bay. First, when Barack Obama came to Kenya in 1987, his half sister Auma served as his guide.

I had been warned that the road from Kisumu to Kendu Bay was very poor, so I made an early start. However, like many of the major roads in this part of Kenya, it had recently been resurfaced and driving was really not a problem—except for the appalling driving standards of most Kenyans. Nor was it really that di cult to nd the Obama homestead. By now, Obama was easily the most famous name in Africa, and after a few inquiries we were directed o the main road from Kendu Bay and up a dirt track. Even though Africans tend to be notably relaxed and welcoming to total strangers, even to a mzungu who arrives unannounced, I was feeling a little uncomfortable about arriving at the Obama homestead without making any arrangements.
