Former US president, Barrack Obama’s grandmother, Mama Sarah Onyango Obama, dies at age 99.
Her daughter, Marsat Obama, confirmed this when she revealed that her mother died at the Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital, Kisumu at 4.45am on Monday, March 29.
Sarah Obama was admitted to the hospital on Sunday morning, due to an illness but she couldn’t hold on any longer barely 24 hours later.
The family has announced they want 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.
