President Uhuru mourns Mama Sarah Obama

President Uhuru Kenyatta is mourning the death of former United States President Barack Obama’s grandmother Mama Sarah Onyango Obama.

Mama Sarah, who is the third wife of the paternal grandfather of former US President Barack Obama, died Monday morning in Kisumu.

President Uhuru has condoled with the family of Obama following the death of Mama Sarah Onyango Obama.

In his message of condolence, the head of state described Sarah Obama as an icon of family values and a philanthropist whose contribution to the progress of the Kenyan nation shall be dearly.

“The passing away of Mama Sarah is a big blow to our nation. We’ve lost a strong, virtuous woman. A matriarch who held together the Obama family and was an icon of family values,” President Uhuru said.

Mama Sarah Obama will be remembered by many for her philanthropic work especially in her Nyang’oma Kogelo home in Siaya County where she initiated several community development projects.

“She was a loving and celebrated philanthropist who graciously shared the little she had with the less fortunate in her community,” Uhuru stated.

Mama Sarah passed away at the age of 99 while receiving treatment at a Kisumu hospital.
