President Barack Obama’s Half Brother Arrested on Drug Charge

George Obama, the half-brother of U.S. President Barack Obama, has been arrested by Kenyan police on a charge of possession of marijuana, police said Saturday.

George Obama was arrested in Kenya on a charge for possession of marijuana, according to police.

George Obama was arrested in Kenya on a charge for possession of marijuana, according to police.

Inspector Augustine Mutembei, the officer in charge, said Obama was arrested on charges of possession of cannabis, known in Kenya as Bhang, and resisting arrest. He is scheduled to appear in court Monday, Mutembei said.

He is being held at Huruma police post in the capital of Nairobi.

Speaking from behind bars, Obama denied the allegations.

“They took me from my home,” he said, “I don’t know why they are charging me.”

George Obama and the president barely know each other, though they have met. George Obama was one of the president’s few close relatives who did not go to the inauguration in Washington last week.

In his memoir, “Dreams from My Father,” Barack Obama describes meeting George as a “painful affair.” Barack Obama’s trip to Kenya meant meeting family he had never known.

McKenzie tracked down George Obama in August and found him at a small house in Huruma, a Nairobi slum, where he lives with his mother’s extended family. His birth certificate shows that he is Barack Obama’s half-brother.

The two men share a Kenyan father. In the memoir, Barack Obama struggles to reconcile with his father after he left him and his mother when he was just a child.

Barack Obama Sr. died in a car accident when George was just 6 months old. Like his half-brother, George hardly knew his father.

    Wasn’t clinton’s half brother busted a few times for dope? Guess it is a democrap requirement. Clinton’s brother, hussein’s brother, clinton admitted he was a user and hussein admitted he was a user. Yep it is a democrap thing. God help the USA and the next 1448 days.

    Another doper family in public housing.

    Oh this is rich. Only weeks into his presidency and some embarrassment of a sibling is
    making waves for the Commander-In-Chief. I get the feeling George (and Mr. Obama’s other half siblings out there) are going to have plenty of more shenanigans is store for Mr Obama, far worse than the esteemed Billy Carter and Roger Clinton. Thanks for the comic relief George. Keep it coming.
