Obama Update: Mombasa Falsehood Exposed

A recent article on freerepublic.com has waylaid the falsehood that Mombasa was not part of Kenya in 1961 (which some claimed proved the recent birth certificates showing Obama was born there are forgeries). The article and a 1960 Kenya map from National Geographic show clearly that Mombasa was under British control at the time Obama was born in 1961 and not Zanzibar’s control as detractors had claimed.

(To see Mombasa, zoom in on the east coast of Kenya on the map on the site above. You will also see that Zanzibar, off the coast, is clearly marked “U.K.”)

Whether or not the birth certificates showing Obama was born in Mombasa, Kenya, are authentic remains to be proven in court (see previous articles on this site), but the contention that Mombasa was not part of Kenya in 1961 is false.
