The Kogelo, Kenya, primary school served as the "Official Obama Office" during inauguration festivities in the new President's ancestral village.

The school was the main inauguration gathering spot in Kogelo, but the institution may face stiff competition during future festivals. Kenya has allocated the equivalent of about a million U.S. dollars for an Obama cultural center in the village, according to Kenya's Daily Nation. Meanwhile, Obama: The Musical enjoyed an inauguration-inspired revival at Nairobi's Kenya National Theatre this week.
