NAIROBI, Kenya – Sen. Barack Obama is positioned to easily win the presidential election, former U.S. Rep. Walter Fauntroy told participants in Kenya’s National Prayer Breakfast at the Safari Park Hotel in Nairobi in June.

Fauntroy – an African-American noted as the first congressman to represent the District of Columbia in 100 years and a founding member of the Congressional Black Caucus – said an Obama victory would make Kenya the most important nation in the world, as the place where the first U.S. black president “is to come from,” elected “to teach the world how to live in the 21st century.”

Not all present necessarily felt as enthusiastic at the prospect of an Obama presidency.

The prayer breakfast was attended by Kenya’s President Mwai Kibaki, Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka, both of the Kikuyu tribe, and newly-appointed Prime Minister Raila Odinga, a Luo tribesman. Obama supported Odinga’s challenge to Kibaki for the presidency when the Illinois Democrat visited Kenya on a U.S. Senate “fact-finding” mission in 2006.

One of President Kibaki’s top advisers – interviewed by WND in Nairobi yesterday under an assurance of anonymity – pointed to Fauntroy’s remarks at the prayer breakfast as the type of “inappropriate partisan comments” that continue to reveal deep racial and tribal divisions within Kenyan politics.

In Eldoret, a group of some 50 Christians sought refuge in a Christian church, trying to escape from a rampaging Luo mob that ultimately set fire to the church and burned the refugees to death, including women and children.
