US court grants asylum to Obama’s African aunt

By Monday, May 17, 2010

CLEVELAND — A U.S. immigration court has granted asylum to President Barack Obama’s African aunt, allowing her to stay in the country, her attorneys announced Monday.

The decision was mailed Friday and comes three months after Kenya native Zeituni Onyango, the half-sister of Obama’s late father, testified at a closed hearing in Boston, where she arrived in a wheelchair and two doctors testified in support of her case.

The basis for her asylum request hadn’t been made public.

People who seek asylum must show that they face persecution in their homeland on the basis of religion, race, nationality, political opinion or membership in a social group.


As mentioned on source site.

Mr. Obama’s cousin, Raila Amollo Odinga, is currently the Prime Minister of Kenya. Mr. Odinga is the son of the first Vice President of Kenya, Jaramogi Oginga Odinga. His brother, Oburu Odinga, is also currently a Member of Parliament (MP).

So who exactly is going to persecute Aunt Zeituni?
