Charles looked rueful and said nothing. A couple of months later, when I joined the family to watch the presidential inauguration on television, I began to understand the real reasons for the press’s interest in K’ogelo rather than Kendu Bay. First, when Barack Obama came to Kenya in 1987, his half sister Auma served as his guide. As the second child of Barack Obama senior and his first wife, Kezia, Auma was brought up in K’ogelo, even though most of the huge, diverse Obama family lived elsewhere.

One particularly fine example in south Nyanza is called Thimlich Ohinga (thimlich means “frightening dense forest”). Archeological evidence suggests the site was occupied by Bantu tribes more than five hundred years ago, but it was the Luo who started to build in stone when they occupied the region circa 1700, about two hundred years after the Pubungu period. Today, Thimlich Ohinga is preserved as a national museum, but its remote position in an isolated part of south Nyanza means that it gets very few visitors—a pity, because the fortress is built on a low hill that gives a magnificent view across the region.

This almost biblical movement of people, which took more than a dozen generations to complete, was a long and painful process that in time laid the foundation of the Luo tribe of Kenya. It is a journey that started with a local chief living in a mud hut overlooking the White Nile, and ended seven centuries later with the leader of the most powerful nation on earth living in the White House. Nobody can be absolutely sure what triggered the migration of the Nilotes from southern Sudan in the late fourteenth and early fifteenth centuries, but one likely possibility is that climatic change gradually forced the pastoralists to move in search of a more hospitable environment.
