His brother does NOT want financial help.....He says the story is false.
"George, 26, had been living a quiet life, studying to become a car mechanic until earlier this week when Vanity Fair tracked him down to Huruma, on the edge of Nairobi.
He said that he was furious at subsequent reports that he had been abandoned by the Obama family and that he was filled with shame about living in a slum. "It seems there are people who want to destroy me and my family," he said.
"They say I live on a dollar a month, but this is all lies by people who don't want my brother to win." He said that he was supported by his mother, Jael, who now lives in the US, and by a cousin in Huruma.
McKENZIE: George bristles at the thought of his brother financially supporting him. Recent magazine articles, claiming that he is impoverished and desperate, just don't sit well. " I was brought up well. I live well even now. The magazines, they exaggerated everything. I think I kind of like it here. I'm Kenyan, so definitely I love to live in Kenya." http://mediamatters.org/items/200808260023

It isn't a grass hut; it is a wood and scrap metal hovel. Obama is all about transfering wealth from rich to poor, but he can't be bothered helping his own family. He refused to pay for cancer treatments for his own dying mother. Quite a guy.
