Please not that this is not a rant against Obama's Aunt, Onyango. It is also not anti-Obama, this is a rant on media distortion and immigration and asylum procedures.
That this is even an issue shows how much of our countries law is a popularity contest, and how little justice is served. Recently I posted a link to an article about a former Nazi who they are considering deported; someone who they cannot prove is here illegally. The media is lobbying for his departure for some gain of their own, but now their heroic law abiding president's aunt has come up and they will do anything to keep her!
They argue that A) not many Kenyans seek asylum here. (implying that they are not an economic or social threat)
B) She needs to stay for health reasons they say because she has some neurological issue. hello! the woman walks with a cane, and pictures of this were the only proof cited in the article about such health issues.
C) She would become more of a celebrity in Kenya and would not be able to live normally. Yeah? So we ignore our countries laws, which our President has sworn to protect and defend, for political and public relations reasons. (not even public relations to our own society, its actually Kenyans who are to have no say in how this country is run)
The article does grudgingly admit the following "People who seek asylum must show that they face persecution in their homeland on the basis of religion, race, nationality, political opinion or membership in a social group. Onyango's reasons for have not been made public"
Sure, expect to blow it past the public as a secret and to protect her privacy. As if the media ever cared about anyone's privacy before this! I think it rather suspicious.
