Owiny Sigoma was born before 1607 in Kenya (Samia) to Kisodhi (bef1591) . Ancestors are from Uganda.
Owiny Sigoma was possibly the brother of Barack Obama (1961)'s 6th Great Grandfather Ogelo. Their common father was Kisodhi (bef1591), son of Jaduong Owiny (Owiny the Elder). Owinyi the elder is possibly Owinyi Rac Koma (c1544-c1571), due to the known dates for his life, the birth date of Owiny Sigoma before 1607, and Sigoma's lineage to a leader named Owiny who was his grandfather.
- "Kisodhi was succeeded by his aggressive and impulsive son Owiny Sigoma who led a section of Joka- Owiny to Alego.
- ...The Owiny Sigoma group arrived in Alego around 1625 where they found parts of Alego still settled by Bantu speaking people, with whom they fought. They then joined the original Luo immigrants who had occupied the region under the leadership of Alego. The followers of Dimo and Owiny Sigoma migrated together to Alego, leaving the present Ababongo people in Bunyala...
- "Owiny launched a serious attack on the new comers, killing many of them but before he could bring them under his control, a second party of the Jo-Ugenya led by Boro and Puny, the founders of the Boro and Puny clans, appeared. B.A. Ogot has written thus:
- Crossing the river Nzoia and using clever military subterfuge, the group routed Owiny's army and in the ensuing fight, killed Owiny himself." (Source:Ng'ang'a)
