For most fans and followers of US President Barack Obama here in Hong Kong, it is well known that his half brother lives just across the border in Shenzhen.
Mark Okoth Obama Ndesandjo has made the special economic zone his home for the past seven years. In this interview with Dan Kadison, this once publicity-shy younger brother to the US president reveals a little more about himself.
Ndesandjo talks about domestic violence, his life in Shenzhen and his recently completed semi-autobiographic novel, Nairobi to Shenzhen. He also discusses President Obama's forthcoming visit to China and what it's been like living in Shenzhen.
