Even as Kenyans anxiously wait for the arrival of US President, Barrack Obama, and his family this Friday to attend the 6th Global Entrepreneurship Summit to be hosted at the UN headquarters in Gigiri, it has now emerged the he will not be accompanied by his first born daughter, Malia, who has been a subject of uncanny marriage proposals from two Kenyans.
According to impeccable sources, Malia, 17, is busy this summer interning on the set of a television hit series, Girls, that’s currently being filmed in New York and therefore will not find time to accompany her family to Kenya this weekend.
The news of Malia not accompanying Obama to Kenya has dealt Deputy President William Ruto’s ‘lawyer’, Felix Kiprono, a heavy blow since he wanted to use the opportunity to officially ask the US President and First Lady, Michelle, for their daughter’s hand in marriage.
The young lawyer, who hit headlines after he went to court seeking to have Ruto sworn in as President when Uhuru was in The Hague, had already offered 50 cows, 70 sheep and 30 goats as dowry to marry Malia but after the bad news, he got devastated and distraught because Malia meant the world to him.
And it is not only Kiprono, another Maasai moran, who was also eyeing Malia, is also devastated by news that the love of his life will not be jetting into the country this weekend.
He had offered 500 heads of cattle as dowry to marry Malia Obama, who he described as irresistible.
