Kenyan BC- can someone visit this London office?

This came from one of Patriots of this country, Elliott
Dear Sir Before Kenya's independence on 12/12/1963, people born in Kenya were supposed to have their births registered by the then British Colonial Govt. If a birth occurred in a hospital, it was automatically registered, if born at home more often than not it was not registered; until later when people had to have some form of identification or required passports. Then the birth would be late registered provided the registrar was satisfied on the identity of the person & the person would consequently obtain a Birth Certificate. The records of all Births & Deaths before or after independence are kept by the Department of Civil Registration, Sheria House, P O Box 30021 - 00100Nairobi, Kenya. Telephone 0254 020 2227461. If you require this office to do a serach for Mr Obama's birth registration record, you have to contact our London office at Foreign & Commonwealth Office at email; Telephone no 020 7 008 0186 Mon to Frid 10am to 12noon. You will be advised concerning procedures & payable fee for this service. Yours faithfully Winnie Kinyua
