Jan 18, 2013 12:32 IST

US President Barrack Obama’s half-brother from Kenya, Malik Obama decided to launch his political career in the third week of January 2013. Malik Obama announced that he intended running for the gubernatorial seat in the Kenyan country in elections which will be held on 4 March 2013.

Malik Obama, aged 54 years, shares a common father with US President and announced in an interview on 16 January 2013 that his brother’s achievements inspired as well as challenged him for participating in politics in Kenya.

Though, Malik Obama declared that he would find out his own route to politics but some believed that he would use the name Obama for seeking benefit over other competitors. His competitor would also include younger brother of Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga.

Malik Obama declared that he would run as an independent. It is worth noticing that Kenya is mainly polarized by the dominant political parties.
