African Press International (API) is a Norway-based English-language online news service that began in 2006. API claims to have “an audience covering more than 101 countries worldwide,” with a majority in Africa and the U.S., and “another large group of followers” residing in Europe.
API’s e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org; its mailing address is Foreign Press Association in Norway/NIPS, Haakon VII’s gt 10, 0161 Oslo, NORWAY.
An API article on March 9, 2012, claims that on the evening of March 6, API “received President Obama’s genuine birth certificate” — a birth certificate that “places the president in the African continent,” specifically, in the Republic of Kenya.
According to the article,
“Many people seem to be of the opinion that there is a plan to hide from them the real thing. The US President says he is born in Hawaii. Many documents being circulated worldwide says otherwise. Therefore, it is very important to be outright and get the real thing on the table without witch hunt or without trying to malign the president’s name, unless the truth is not what he personally has said.”
But now that Obama’s genuine birth certificate is uncovered, the API declares that “The debate surrounding it will now end after the revelation, and those who have not been telling the truth will have to be made answerable one way or another” and “This may force the US president to apologise to the American people for having been kept in the dark on the issue….”

The API article also states that API has sought to corroborate the birth certificate with Kenya’s Coast Provincial Birth Registration Office (CPBRO). The corroboration, in the form of “a duly signed official letter” from CPBRO, as well as “a very special document”, will be scanned “for all to see”, tomorrow, March 31, 2012, between 11.00 and 16.00. API promises that “The two documents will put the issue to rest and clear the air once and for all!”
Update (April 2, 2012):
March 31 came and went, but API posted neither “a duly signed official letter” from CPBRO nor “a very special document” as they had promised. In fact, the paragraph above which begins with “The API article also states that API….” is now deleted from the article entirely. See for yourself by going to the article.
