Nairobi - The Daily Nation reports that, President Barack Obama swept to re-election, forging history again by transcending a slow economic recovery and the high unemployment which haunted his first term to beat Republican Mitt Romney.
The 44th US president, and the first African American to claim the Oval Office, was returned to power after a bitter election campaign when television networks projected he would take Ohio and his spiritual political home of Iowa.
"This happened because of you. Thank you," Obama tweeted to his 22 million followers on Twitter as jubilation erupted at his victory party in Chicago.
