Kenyan elder seeks to meet Obama

An elder from northeastern Kenya town of Wajir who dressed former US President Barack Obama in traditional Somali attire in 2006 is seeking to meet him.

Hussein Mumin is a peace elder and is credited with bringing to an end inter-clan clashes in Wajir in 1993 and is still active in pursuing peace in the area and beyond.

During his Kenyan tour of 2006 when he was a senator, Obama visited Wajir where Mumin dressed him in traditional Somali outfit which was later depicted by his Republican opponent during the 2008 US Presidential campaign.

“I blessed Mr Obama when he was a senator and he ended up ruling America for two terms. I now want to bless him to be the leader of peace in global hotspots such as Syria, Palestine, Afghanistan, South Sudan and Somalia,” Mumin told Kenya’s leading newspaper Daily Nation.

But the US embassy in Nairobi did not grant him permission to meet Obama.

Obama was in Kenya for a two-day visit where he met President Uhuru Kenyatta and opposition leader Raila Odinga. He also visited his ancestral town of K’Ogalo in western Kenya and launched Sauti Kuu Foundation. He is now in South Africa to address the Nelson Mandela Foundation conference as a key note speaker.
