Daily Nation: – News | Shame of Obama aunt asylum files

Posted on August 20, 2010


An aunt of President Barack Obama was allowed to stay in the United States on the shocking grounds that she would be persecuted by Kenyan leaders if she was forced to return to the country.

And on Wednesday, the government reacted angrily to the US Immigration court’s apparent endorsement of claims by Ms Zeituni Onyango — the half-sister of the American President’s Kenyan father — that she would be persecuted if she was deported.

Justice and Constitutional Affairs minister Mutula Kilonzo described the claims as “ridiculous and an insult to Kenyans”.
