Kenya Celebrates Barack Obama Victory
Thursday has been declared a holiday in Kenya in Barack Obama’s honor, and his family is celebrating and making plans to go to Washington to attend the swearing in. Grandma Sarah is waiting for a phone call which she expects shortly. "We will plan how to attend the vital celebrations in the US," Sarah said at her home in Nyangoma, Kogelo village.
The Obama family has a major new benefit in their village. As they celebrated, the Kenya Power and Lighting Company showed up at the family home as it was installing electricity to the village.
