According to Nairobi News, her demise was confirmed by her daughter, Marsat Obama, who said her mother died at the Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital, Kisumu at 4.45am on Monday.
She had been admitted to the hospital on Sunday morning.
The family is making arrangements to have her buried today (Monday) at the Muslim Cemetery in Kisumu.
“We are trying to see whether we shall be able to bury her today and if not, we shall bury her tomorrow,” a relative said.
Obama’s father, Barack Obama Sr., was born in Kogelo, a rural village in western Kenya. He left for studies on a scholarship in the United States where he met a white woman, Ann Dunham, at the University of Hawaii. The couple got married but divorced when the younger Obama was two years old. His father returned to Kenya where he died in a car crash in Nairobi in 1982. The StraitTimes reports that Mr Obama never really knew his father, whom he met only once when he was 10, but he felt a connection that eventually took him to Kenya in 1987 in search of his roots.

This is a very sad story about a couple who lost their son in the hospital because they could not afford to pay the hospital bills as you read further, you might want to blame the man or who do you think should be blamed?
There is this saying that says “Husband’s money is for the family while the wife’s money is hers” this could be the reason why some women don’t spend their money with their families, thereby hoping on their husbands to fully take responsibility in the family.
Man Left His Wife After Finding N3.6m In Her Account And Their Son Died Because Of Hospital Bills
The heart of Man is desperately wicked to an extent that a woman will have a huge sum of money in her bank account and not willing to release it to save her only child’s life .
It was gathered that her husband could not afford to pay their son’s medical bills urgently and the boy wasn’t given medical attention which led to his death. Thereafter, her husband found the sum of N3.6 million in her account.
According to TVC, it says that “Couple loses sick son after they both refused to pay the hospital bills. The wife claimed that her husband has a habit of giving excuses each time monetary issues cones up. Her husband left the house after finding N3.6 million in her account after their son’s death”.
In my opinion, the man must have seen her as a wicked woman that was why he left her.
What is your opinion in this regard?
