Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are brothers!? Obama was actually born in Kenya?! It might sound strange, but it’s true. A young woman in Kenya has named her twins after President Obama and his recently defeated GOP challenger Mitt Romney.
According to Reuters, several babies born in Kenya recently were named after the President. But Millicent Owuor, 20, wanted to do more than honor the President of the United States; she wanted to celebrate political unity and bipartisanship.
“I named the first twin Barack and the second one Mitt.”
So yes, as it turns out, Barack Obama really was born in Kenya.
According to the Kenyan newspaper, The Standard, the twin boys were born just a few miles from the village of Kogelo, where Obama’s father was born and buried.
Kenya and Africa saw a boost in aid during President Obama’s first term and they hope the President continues to focus on Africa during the next four years.
Mustafa Obama, the President’s half brother, said:
“If I had a chance to talk to him, which hopefully I will get after he is inaugurated again, my message would be to focus on Africa … If he can put more emphasis on education, health and all that matters to Africa instead of politics, that is my message to my brother.”
