In anticipation of Barack Obama's inauguration, Kenyans dance on January 19, 2009, in Kogelo, home of the new President's step-grandmother. "Mama Sarah," as Obama calls her, however, was in Washington, D.C., where she shared the inaugural stage with him on January 20.

The dance was part of an Obama-centered cultural festival that began on January 16 and which locals hope to make an annual attraction, according to the Kenyan Daily Nation newspaper.
