Did you know President Obama has a half brother?
Mark Obama Ndesandjo, is currently self publishing his autobiography “Cultures: My Odyssey of Self-Discovery.” The book attempts to correct some points in “Dreams From My Father” President Obama’s 1995 memoir which he’d written in an attempt to learn more about Obama Sr, a mostly absent figure, who’d died in a car crash at age 46.
Ndesandjo and Obama did not grow up together. Like the President, Ndesandjo had a white American mother, a Jewish woman who was Barack Obama Sr.’s third wife. Ndesandjo was brought up in Kenya and moved to the U.S. for college. He now lives in the southern Chinese town of Shenzhen, near Hong Kong.
