American president Barack Obama’s half brother was REFUSED a visa to enter the UK after being accused of an attempted sex attack on a young girl in Berkshire.
The News of the World can reveal that Kenya-based Samson Obama tried to get into Britain on his way to Washington for his family’s big day, the historic inauguration in January.
But eagle-eyed immigration officials at East Midlands Airport, using the latest biometric tests, discovered he was linked to an incident here last November. The hi-tech database revealed that Samson – who manages a mobile phone shop just outside Nairobi – was the same man arrested by British police after he approached a group of young girls, including a 13 year-old, and allegedly tried to sexually assault one of them.
He then followed them into a cafe where he became aggressive and was asked to leave by the owner. That’s when police were called and Samson was arrested.
He supplied officers with his mother’s address in Bracknell but gave them a false ID, claiming to be Henry Aloo, a genuine asylum seeker.
Mum Kezia, 67, has lived in Bracknell for six years. She married the US president’s father Barack Obama Snr in Kenya when she was a teenager.
Following Samson’s arrest he was fingerprinted but not charged, then left the country. However, all his details were stored on the Home Office’s new database of prints and biometric details. And that’s what finally pinpointed Samson’s link to the world’s most powerful leader – as he tried to slip back into Britain to visit relatives en route to the swearing-in ceremony.
