Kenya gags Obama’s Extended Family
The Kenyan government has blocked members of President-elect Barack Obama’s extended family from talking to the media.
Www.allafrica.com reports that the Kenyan government told family members that they would have to ask for official permission before issuing any statement concerning Obama. It said the government would also vet all those seeking information about the family.
“We are doing this because we want to ensure better flow of information. The government has decided that you should inform its officers who will be based here if you want to address the media,” Athman Said, an Under-Secretary in the Ministry of Heritage, told the Obama family in Kogelo on Thursday.
Better flow of information by vetting all seeking information? What he should be saying is they don’t want any more of Obama’s relatives or ambassadors having anymore slips of the tongue.
