PERSON WHOSE COMPANY DOES BUSINESS IN KENYA: “WE WERE ABLE TO GET THE INFORMATION”
by Sharon Rondeau
(Jul. 19, 2011) — Recently The Post & Email was contacted by someone who stated that he was told by very reliable business contacts within his company that they were provided information before the 2008 presidential election that Barack Hussein Obama II was born in Mombasa, Kenya. The interviewee stated that his coworkers were told by an assistant to an under-secretary within the Kenyan government that Obama’s birth record existed in Kenya, and that the information was not difficult at the time to obtain.
The following is our interview with the individual:
MRS. RONDEAU: Thank you for contacting us regarding the knowledge which you said you have that Obama II was definitely born in Mombasa, Kenya. How did you learn that information?
INTERVIEWEE: Actually, it was prior to the presidential election when I had conversations with Atty. Philip Berg. He wanted to know if there was any way to find out if a certified copy of Obama’s Kenyan birth record could be obtained from any hospital in Kenya. We do a lot of business in that country and work very closely with the various ministries there as well as very high officials in the government, but the timing was such that the record had already been taken by Raila Odinga, the current prime minister of the country. I suppose if we had gone in there a month or so earlier, it might have still been possible for us to get it. It might still be possible to get it, but it would cost a lot of money and would be very, very difficult.
MRS. RONDEAU: Is there a way that you can be sure that Raila Odinga himself took personal custody of that birth record?
INTERVIEWEE: As with any third-world country, when the prime minister or any major minister in the country or any president issues an edict or an order, no under-minister is going to risk his job or even his life unless there’s a lot of money on the line where they could leave the country and not go back.
MRS. RONDEAU: Do you think someone would go on the line for 1,000,000 or 2,000,000 American dollars, or any amount?
INTERVIEWEE: Yes, the ministers would, yes, but Raila Odinga is a very rich man, so to go to him would probably would not be the best thing.
MRS. RONDEAU: When your contacts found this out, were they working with Dr. Jerome Corsi of WorldNetDaily? He has reported that many birth records within a given time frame, which included 1961, were found to have been missing and that a government minister had found it out and launched an investigation. Were your contacts involved at all with that, to your knowledge?
INTERVIEWEE: No, not at all.
MRS. RONDEAU: Have you looked at the alleged birth certificate that Mr. Lucas Smith has put out on the internet?
INTERVIEWEE: Yes. I recall that Orly Taitz had submitted it to Judge David O. Carter in her lawsuit. That was totally bogus and obviously fraudulent because Kenya was a country that was under British rule for many years, and when Obama was born, information on his birth record would have been given in metric measurements: height, weight, etc. The document I have seen has it in inches and pounds, so it’s totally fraudulent.
MRS. RONDEAU: If your sources told you accurately that Raila Odinga or someone deep within the Kenyan government took custody of the document, then it would seem as if even a copy would not have been available at the hospital as Mr. Smith has claimed.
INTERVIEWEE: No, it would not. I know for a fact that Raila Odinga took it. I had this conversation with someone as to what it would take to be able to actually get access to the information, but you have to ask yourself, “Is it worth it to somebody, maybe?” Then at the end of the day, is there unique information that would be required for someone to risk his life to obtain? Is it possible to get a copy of it? So when I had this conversation, the people with whom I spoke felt that unless you could actually get the genuine, certified birth record, a copy would present problems.
MRS. RONDEAU: Do you think government officials in our government such as Eric Holder, Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan, and even the other members of the U.S. Supreme Court know that Obama was born in Kenya?
INTERVIEWEE: That would be very speculative. I know Orly Taitz has been working hard to get to the truth, and I hope she succeeds. She’s very persistent. Maybe a federal judge will order that Obama’s records be opened. I have been following Orly’s work, and I hope a judge somewhere does the right thing.
