George Obama, the half brother of U.S. President Barack Obama, has been arrested by Kenyan police on a charge of possession of marijuana, police said Saturday.I think his brother calls it a "little blow." Sadly, the jail cell is probably an upgrade from the little hole in the wall where he was living. The guy is so poor, it is surprising that he could afford any Bhang. Or an addiction could be one reason he is so poor. It is too bad he does not have a relative to make an intervention.
Inspector Augustine Mutembei, the officer in charge, said Obama was arrested on charges of possession of cannabis, known in Kenya as Bhang, and resisting arrest. He is scheduled to appear in court Monday, Mutembei said.
He is being held at Huruma police post in the capital of Nairobi.
CNN Correspondent David McKenzie talked with George Obama at the jail where he is being held. Speaking from behind bars, Obama denied the allegations.
"They took me from my home," he said, "I don't know why they are charging me."
