According to Buzzfeed:
The two share the same father, Barack Obama Sr., who married Ruth, a Jewish school teacher from Massachusetts after they met at Harvard in 1964. Barack Obama Sr. divorced Ann Dunham only a few months earlier, when the future president was two years old.
Ndesandjo has released an autobiography, Cultures: My Odyssey of Self-Discovery, which tells his story of growing up in Kenya with Barack Obama Sr., who he says was an abusive alcoholic.
His mom eventually left Barack Obama Sr. and later remarried, which is where Ndesandjo gets his last name.
Ndesandjo went to Brown University, got a Masters from Stanford, and an MBA from Emory University.
Ndesandjo, who moved to Shenzhen, China in 2002, flew from the country to visit his brother in 2008. Since their reunion, the brothers met at the White House in 2009. They met again when Obama visited China later that year.
