Mark Obama Ndesandjo has written a book, ‘Nairobi to Shenzhen: A novel of Love in the East’.

New Delhi: Mark Obama Ndesandjo, US President Barack Obama’s half brother, has revealed that he is happy to be living in China at the moment.

Ndesandjo was talking ahead of a news conference in Beijing to mark the release of the Chinese translation of his semi-autobiographical book, ‘Nairobi to Shenzhen: A novel of Love in the East’, China Daily reported.

The book, originally released in English in 2009, is billed as a part-fiction, part-fact account of his journey to China.

“The book is not only about the theme of family, it’s also about China, it’s about Shenzhen,” he said referring to the city in Guangdong province he has called home for the last nine years.

Ndesandjo, who was born in Kenya but has US citizenship, also said that he has no idea whether he will stay in China or eventually move back to the US.

“Tomorrow I don’t know, but right now I am happy in China,” he added.
