Barack Obama's Cousin Leads Opposition In Violent Kenya
Kenyan opposition leader Raila Odinga and Barack Obama are cousins.
In an interview with Reuters, Odinga said Barack called him twice one day last week to express his concern over the violent situation in Kenya since Odinga lost the elections.
But, the situation does not look like it is improving any.
The opposition claims the election was rigged in favour of President Mwai Kibaki. A US foundation’s exit poll predicted that President Kibalki had lost the election.
Doug Ross reported on the election violence:
When Raila Odinga lost the presidential election last week (12/27) to Mwai Kibaki, he claimed the vote was rigged, whereupon his tribal followers went on murderous rampages such as in the town of Eldoret, where on New Years Day dozens of people were burned to death in a church set on fire… Throughout Kenya, hundreds of people have been politically murdered in the last few days.
Reuters posted this video interview with Odiga last week:
Some 600 people have died in rioting since the election last month and 250,000 have been displaced.
THERE’S MORE… According to documents obtained by Kenyan officials, Obama’s cousin Odinga promised Shariah law in Kenya if elected.
That probably won’t play too well with the Obama campaign on “Change” here at home.

You’d think this might make a few headlines here in the US?
UPDATE: There’s more trouble for Obama… His pastor’s admiration for the anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan is making headlines today.
HotAir asks: “Why would Obama’s Christian church magazine laud a racist radical Muslim?”
