On October 22, 2011 we published a report here at WOBIK entitled Stanley Ann Dunham goes to Kenya.
The report featured a snapshot taken from the film White Mischief in which actress Greta Scacchi plays Diana Lady Broughton, sexually mischievous white British woman who is visting Kenya circa the year 1940. We compared and likened British Diana Lady Broughton to American Ann Dunham who arrived in Kenya approximately 20 years later.
Dr. Conspiracy (Kevin Wayne Davidson) publish (March 22, 2012) an article, Born in Africa myth crushed under weight of its complexity, in which he asserts that from June 1961 thru June 1962 (note: Obama was born in August 1961) that only 1 (one) person flew (traveled by air) from Kenya to the United States. Morever, than one person what an Alien (i.e., non US Citizen). Another 20 persons (13 Aliens, 7 US Citizens) traveled from Kenya to the United States by sea. The purported 1962 US Government document is attached below for review:
The problem with the foregoing numbers is that the British Government indicates the in the year 1961 that 6792 Americans visted British East Africa (i.e., Kenya, Tanganyika, Uganda and Zanzibar):
It is exceedingly challenging and problematic to conclude that out of those 6792 Americans that only only one (1) of them returned to the United Statea of America by air and twenty (20) of them by sea.
Furtermore, the porportion of stay in Kenya, Tanganyika, Uganda and Zanzibar indicates that in 1961 that 67% of all vistors were traveling to Kenya while only approximately 21% traveled to Tanganyika, 10% to Uganda and approximately 1% to Zanzibar. (Also please note the reference to passengers arriving in Mombasa by ship (i.e., by sea) and the immense amount (£378,277) of tourist trade revenue created by those passengers):
Below I have attached pages 97 thru 101 (“Tourist Trade” segment) of the Colonial Office Report On The Colony And Protectorate of Kenya For The Year 1961 (the entire report is embedded near the head of this blog report via a 242 page Patriot1980 scribd.com upload):
