Section 1 of Article II of the Constitution states:
“ No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.
Mike Clark who hosts the Mike In The Morning show with Trudi Daniels and Marc Fellhauer on WRIF radio, in Detroit, Michigan, called the Kenyan Embassy in Washington D.C. on November 6, and spoke to the Kenyan Ambassador to the United States, Peter Ogego, who admitted that it is a well known fact that Barack Obama was born in Kenya, and plans are underway to build a memorial at the site of his birth.
Clark: “We want to congratulate you on Barack Obama, our new president, and you must be very proud.”
Ogego: “We are. We are. We are also proud of the U.S. for having made history as well.”
Fellhauer: “One more quick question, President-elect Obama’s birthplace over in Kenya, is that going to be a national spot to go visit, where he was born?”
Ogego: “It’s already an attraction. His paternal grandmother is still alive.”
Fellhauer: “His birthplace, they’ll put up a marker there?”
Ogego: “It would depend on the government. It’s already well known.”
In a follow-up report run by the morning show’s website, Ogego’s assistant insisted he was speaking about Barack Obama Sr., and not President-elect Obama, but as the radio hosts report, that explanation just doesn’t add up.
