Onyango Obama, President's Uncle, Gets Driver's License Back After Drunk Driving Arrest

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON -- President Barack Obama's uncle has been granted a hardship driver's license by the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles just a week after he lost the right to drive for 45 days in a deal in a drunken driving case.

The license granted Monday allows 67-year-old Onyango (ohn-YAHN'-goh) Obama to drive from noon to midnight to get to work as manager of a Framingham liquor store.

Obama is the half brother of the president's late father. He was arrested in August.

He pleaded to sufficient facts last week.

Onyango Obama is from Kenya. He's appealing a deportation order.
