Malik Obama to run for governor's office

Malik Obama to run for office

Barack Obama's half-brother Malik has decided to run for governor's office in the Kenyan's nationwide elections on Monday.

"I'm going into it as Malik Obama," he said. "I can't run away from my name and association with my brother, but I have the feeling that people somewhat want to see who the brother of Obama is."

Malik's message is based on "change", just like the 2008 presidential campaign of his half-brother. He said his platform is poverty eradication, infrastructure development and industrialization.

"I hope that you all out there will support me and vote for me for this important position so that we can bring change to the county of Siaya," he said at a recent campaign stop.

He is running as an independent.
