NAIROBI, Kenya -- A hospital in Kenya reports U.S. President Obama's stepbrother may have cholera.

Doctors at a hospital in Nyanza Province were awaiting test results Thursday on Malik Abong'o Obama, who was among the Kenyan contingent at Obama's inauguration in January.

The (Nairobi) Daily Nation reported the patient was brought in after becoming symptomatic this week; however, a staff physician who asked to remain anonymous told the newspaper tests could show he is suffering from any number of less-serious intestinal ailments.
