Daily Mail has a detailed feature article about Malik Obama with photographs from President Obama’s home in Kenya.

I see my brother privately at least once a year, when I go to visit him in the White House and say hello. It’s like visiting a working national monument, such as the Smithsonian or Buckingham Palace.
Malik suffered an embarrassing political defeat in this week in Kenya when he ran for governorship of Siaya County. According to this article in the Daily Mail, President Obama’s brother, Malik, wants to be President Obama of Kenya!
