Notable Kenyan People

Barack Obama has an unusual and interesting background. Former President Obama draws support from the Luo ethnic group of his ancestors in Kenya, Africa. His father, also named Barack Obama, born in Kenya, was a much of a path breaker as his son is. Barack Obama Sr. went from herding goats in Kenya to studying at Harvard  University. President Obama did not know his father well but he does know his Kenyan relatives. He visits them on occasion at their village, Nyang'oma Kogelo in Kenya, most recently in 2006.
