Nairobi, Nov 3 (ANI): Even as it is less than 24 hours to go for the US presidential poll, people in Kenya, the heartland of Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obamas family, prayed for his victory in Nov 4 poll.

At the famous Kisumu’’s Baptist Church, dozens of Christian faithful sang and prayed for Obama, who has become the East African nations favourite son, who is all set to occupy the White House.

Raising their hands in the air, the worshippers sang prayers into a chorus over keyboard tunes belting through a homemade woofer, reported Pakistani daily The News.

Other special prayer sessions were scheduled across the western Kenyan region in the final run-up to Tuesday’’s vote, it added.

According to recent polls, Obama is said to be ahead of his Republican rival John McCain by six points in the race to presidency. (ANI)
