John Dimo, a traditional witch-doctor, walks out of his mud-hut before performing an ancient rite with mystical artifacts to predict the outcome of the U.S. elections in Kogelo village, Nyangoma Kogelo, 430 km (367 miles) west of Kenya's capital Nairobi, November 5, 2012. Kogelo is the ancestral home of U.S. President Barack Obama. Dimo, about 115-years-old, says he knew Obama's father who was buried in the village in 1982. The former army officer says he inherited his trade as a witch-doctor from his father in 1962 and is certain his rite will help favour Obama in the U.S. elections. Four years ago, Kogelo, and Africa in general, celebrated with noisy gusto when Obama, whose father came from the scattered hamlet of tin-roofed homes, became the first African-American to be elected president of the United States. Looking across the Atlantic to the November 6 presidential election, the continent is cooler now towards the "son of Africa" who is seeking a second term. There are questions too whether his Republican rival, Mitt Romney, will have more to offer to sub-Saharan Africa if he wins the White House.
