His hat plastered with Barack Obama's image, a Kenyan supporter of the U.S. presidential candidate awaits election results in Obama's ancestral village of Kogelo, Kenya, on November 4.

Home to Obama family members--including his paternal grandmother--and site of his father's grave, Kogelo erupted in joy and pride Wednesday morning at the news of Obama's win (watch a video of the Kogelo celebration).

Soon after, Kenya's president declared Thursday a national holiday.
