"If anyone says something about my surname, I say we are not related. I am ashamed," he said. (George said , not Barack) See photo.
President Obama's young half-sibling was in the headlines last year after it was revealed that he was living in a corrugated iron shack in a sprawling slum as his brother ran for the most powerful job in the world.
George, who was the son of Mr Obama's father by his second wife, was one of the president's few close relatives who did not travel to Washington for the inauguration on Jan 20.
The two met previously when Mr Obama visited his ancestral homeland in an encounter that he described as a "painful affair" in his memoir Dreams from My Father.
Inspector Augustine Mutembei said the trainee mechanic (However he now hopes to try to sort his life out by starting a course at a local technical college – Vanity Fair 2008) would face charges of possession of cannabis and resisting arrest.
But the accused man protested his innocence in comments from behind bars. (I am innocent i tell you, innocent!) "They took me from my home," he told a CNN reporter after alerting the local correspondent with a telephone calls. "I don't know why they are charging me." (Please ask my brother to help me!)
He was later released from custody, according to a relative. It was not immediately clear whether his scheduled court appearance on Monday would go ahead.
Barack Obama Sr met the president's mother while they were both college students in Hawaii. The couple later divorced and he moved back to Kenya where he remarried. (You keep on saying that)
George, his youngest child, was just six months old when his father died in a car crash and lives with his mother's relatives in the Nairobi slum of Huruma.
Despite his humble background, he was angered by magazine reports last year that he was living in poverty on less than a dollar a day. ("No-one knows who I am," he told the magazine, before claiming: "I live here on less than a dollar a month." According to Italy's Vanity Fair )
"I was brought up well," he said in a subsequent interview. "I live well even now. I think I kind of like it here. There are some challenges, but maybe it is just like where you come from, there are the same challenges." (wake-up, get stoned, sign a few autographs, spin a spanner, get stoned, what me worry!)
George Obama is not the first member of the president's extended African family to make the news (And he won't be the last). Last year, it was reported that his paternal aunt Zeituni Onyango was an illegal immigrant to the US living in a rundown public housing estate in South Boston.
Do you think this arrest would have taken place if George did not have this famous brudder? Is this a Republican party / CIA conspiracy? Who knows, but poor old George’s arrest is somewhat timely. You can’t tell me the man has only recently started smoking pot. Most , if not all, African countries are very lax in enforcing the law surrounding the use of marijuana. It is considered by african tribes as a traditional herb and hey in South Africa, it is a huge exportable commodity – ask Glen, Jackie or SAA. Strange but true!
Tough job Obama, but unfortunatley that's how it goes - the closet doors (not windows) are open and the knives are out. The first place they start digging is always family. It has happend with all previous prezi's, even GB jnr's daughters were portrayed in a negative light in the beginning of his tenure. We are bound to see the attacks on the family before real issues get torn apart. Standard procedure in American politics. Fortunatley you have a long way to go before you can mimic a true African leader. One man, one vote, plenty of wives.
