In an attempt to invalidate his Presidency, diehard Republicans have long claimed Barack Obama was born in his father’s native Kenya. No such rumours have circulated about Mitt Romney.

Now, however, there is unequivocal proof that both Barack Obama AND Mitt Romney were born in the east African country. And yes Donald Trump, there are birth certificates to prove it.

Of course, we’re not talking about the US President and his failed Republican challenger. The Barack Obama and Mitt Romney we’re referring to are twin baby boys born in the town of Siaya just yesterday.

In a bid to forever remember the 2012 US election; 20-year-old mother Millicent Owuor has named her newborn twins after the winning and losing presidential candidates.

Ms Owuor gave birth to her boys just a short distance from Obama’s ancestral village of Kogelo – where his father was born and his 90-year-old step-grandmother, Sarah Obama, still lives.

Residents of Kogelo sang songs, danced and cheered “Obama, Obama, Obama!” after their candidate of choice dominated was re-elected.

Whether Ms Owuor’s tribute leads to lifetime of intense sibling rivalry between the twins, or course, remains to be seen.
