While Barack Obama deals with a bunch of criticism of his domestic and international policies from all sides in America, he can sleep safe in the knowledge that there is at least one safe haven in the world where he will always be welcome and wanted. That is his father’s home town of Kogelo in Kenya where the now-president himself has spent some time.
For his part, Owuor has invested in 400 T-shirts, all proudly bearing a picture of the president, ahead of his visit to to Kenya later this month. As it happens, Obama’s father was born in the rural village in the west of the country, so Barack’s story is truly one of “rags to riches,” almost literally.
