The Obama Conga

Even as President Barack Obama's approval ratings decline in the United States he remains very popular in Kenya. President Obama's ratings in Kenya hover at around 94%. Obama chewing gum, Obama conga's, and Obama t-shirts can be found at about any rural Duka.

The Obamas are member of the Luo tribe; Kenya's third largest ethnic group. President Obama's father was an economist in Kenya. It seems that nearly everyone you meet is somehow Obama's "cousin." And I have been told that "President Obama is currently Kenya's honorary second president."
