Kenya celebrates Obama's likely nomination
by UPI

NAIROBI, Kenya -- U.S. Sen Barack Obama's crossing the delegate threshold for the Democratic presidential nominee touched off celebrations in Kenya, home of Obama's father.

"I'm excited ... because he's a Kenyan. He's a half Kenyan," a woman in Nairobi told CNN.

Obama is popular across the African country, especially in western Kenya where many of his relatives live.

Kenyans danced and drank Senator Keg Lager, which was nicknamed "Obama Beer" in honor of the freshman senator from Illinois, CNN reported.
