Kenyan Man Offers Obama 50 Cows, 70 Sheep And 30 Goats To Marry Malia
A Kenyan lawyer is prepared to give up dozens of livestock to marry President Obama's eldest daughter.
According to Daily Mail, Felix Kiprono Matagei told The Nairobian he's been "interested" in Malia Obama since her father launched his first presidential campaign in 2008.
She was just 10 years old at the time.
And now, the Kenyan native is offering Barack Obama 50 cows, 70 sheep and 30 goats if he will allow him to marry Malia.
He reportedly told The Nairobian,
As a matter of fact, I haven't dated anyone since and promise to be faithful to her. I have shared this with my family and they are willing to help me raise the bride price. People might say I am after the family's money, which is not the case. My love is real.
Matagei's offer appears to be a bride price -- a tradition involving a large amount of money or livestock given to the bride's family from the groom.
Should the president approve of the deal, Matagei plans to propose to Malia on a hill not far from his home.
He and Malia will then share a drink of a traditional Kenyan dairy product, mursik, at their wedding.
Matagei is also excited for Malia to learn how to milk a cow and prepare numerous Kenyan dishes if they do indeed get married.
In July, Matagei intends to make the offer to Obama when he visits Kenya. Obama's father is from Kenya and he still has relatives residing in the African nation.
Matagei also reportedly told Citizen News Obama should be made a Kenyan citizen when he makes the visit.
Instead of the Kenyan delegation receiving Obama with a banquet of flowers, they should present him with a Kenyan identity card and passport as soon as he sets foot in Kenya. A perfect homecoming to a Kenyan son.
Obama's heritage previously evoked so much suspicion, he was forced to present his birth certificate to convince opponents (Donald Trump) he was born in America.
