Kogelo, Kenya (AP) — Here in President Barack Obama’s ancestral village in Kenya, witch doctor John Dimo tossed some shells, bones and other items to determine who will win Tuesday’s election.

After throwing the objects like so many dice outside his hut in Kogelo village, Dimo, who says he is 105 years old, points to a white shell and declares: “Obama is very far ahead and is definitely going to win.”

It’s not a surprising result in Kogelo, Obama’s late father’s hometown in western Kenya and where expectations of another Obama election victory were high on Monday.
