A Kenyan witch doctor from President Barack Obama's ancestral home has predicted the US election outcome.

John Dimo, a traditional witch-doctor, performed an ancient rite with mystical artifacts to predict the outcome of the election.

The former army officer said that he inherited the work as a witch-doctor from his father in 1962 and is certain his rite will help favour Obama in the US elections.

According to the Telegraph, the 115-year-old, who lives in Kogelo village, 367 miles west of Nairobi, predicted that Obama would win the election saying: "Obama is much further ahead and is definitely going to win".

It may be no coincidence, however, that Kogelo village happens to be Obama's ancestral home and witch-doctor Dimo knew the President's father, who was buried there in 1982, the paper said. (ANI)
