Malik has launched his own political career by announcing his intention to run for a Kenyan gubernatorial seat in the upcoming March 4 general elections. Malik, 54, who shares a father with the US president told AFP that the achievements of his more famous half brother have 'inspired and challenged' him to get into active politics in his homeland. The trained economist said he is the right candidate to deal with the 'endless cycle of poverty and unemployment that bedevils my people.' .
