So how much is the first daughter, Malia Obama, really worth?
A Kenyan lawyer has offered 50 cows, 70 sheep, and 30 goats for her.
Felix Kiprono wants to marry 16-year-old Malia and said he’s going to offer President Barack Obama the bride price for his daughter’s hand in marriage when he visits in July.
Kiprono told the Nairobian newspaper that he first became interested in Malia back in 2008, according to MSN.
“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.”
Kiprono said he first became interested in Malia when she was 10-years-old, when President Barack Obama first ran for office.
There’s no report on old Kiprono is.
“I am currently drafting a letter to Obama asking him to please have Malia accompany him for this trip. I hope the embassy will pass the letter to him.”
The hopeful bachelor has already planned a romantic proposal, which will take place on a hill above his village. He’s also planned the wedding, which will feature traditional sour milk, called “mursik,” over champagne.
The President has no need to be worried, though — Kiprono says he’s not a gold digger and that he and Malia would lead a simple life like other young Kenyan couples.
“I will teach Malia how to milk a cow, cook ugali (maize porridge) and prepare mursik like any other Kalenjin woman.”
There’s no word yet on Barack Obama’s response, but maybe he’s just waiting to meet the young man in person before making a decision.
John Kerry visited the country earlier this month to help rebuild frayed ties with the country prior to the president’s visit. Kerry met with Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta to discuss security and counterterrorism.
President Barack Obama will make his first official trip to Kenya in July when he visits the country of his father.
His 90-year-old Kenyan grandmother still lives in Western Kenya, according to Yahoo News.
His half brother, Malik Obama, ran for office in Kenya back in 2013 during a mayoral campaign, according to the Inquisitr — so, perhaps the bridal offer isn’t such a crazy idea after all.
As a Kenyan bride, Malia wouldn’t have to deal with all the political issues at the White House like immigration, amnesty, surveillance programs, “fast track,” or annoying Republicans.
