George Obama visits Leicester

 

A production entitled, Obama the Mamba – President of the Slums, tells the story of the half-brother of US president Barack Obama, and his upbringing in one of the poorest areas of Nairobi.

 

George Obama has been speaking about the play based on his life.

 

The show which premièred at Leicester’s Curve Theatre, illustrates how George and his older sibling lived in “different worlds”.

 

The play will also be staged at the Lowry in Salford later in October.

 

Playwright Kevin Fagan said the story showed how a one-time gangster had turned his life around to become a force for good.
