Kenya plans to send a delegation of politicians and relatives to the swearing-in ceremony on Monday of Barack Obama, the newly elected Democratic senator from Illinois who has Kenyan roots. And Kenyan officials have already begun preparing a major welcome party for Mr. Obama, who is scheduled to visit Nairobi in May to speak at an international media conference. Mr. Obama's father was born in Kenya, but the senator-elect has never lived in the country. Still, Kenyans consider Mr. Obama a local and celebrated heartily when he was elected the Senate's lone African-American member.No word on whether Kansas will be sending a delegation to Obama's swearing-in.
