Kenyans stayed awake and celebrated Obama victory. Senator beer got more famous! Others wondered why Kenya spent so much money marketing the country while all they needed was one famous man, and now everybody knows about Kenya.
There is no doubt that Barrack Obama's candidacy in the race to the White House has raised Kenya's profile. Every time he is in the news, it is mentioned that his father was Kenyan. It would be expected therefore that his candidacy would thrust Kenya into a frenzy. But Kenya has its own problems with the post election violence and lethargy by leaders to compromise their political hardlines for the sake of peace.
