Kenya to maintain security for Barack Obama's ‘GRANNY SARAH’

Kenyan police will continue to provide round-the-clock security for the step-grandmother of former U.S. president Barack Obama despite his exit from office, the country’s government has said.

Sarah Onyango Obama, who is in her 90s, is one of the wives of Obama’s paternal grandfather, though she is not a blood relative of the former president. She lives in the village of Nyang’oma Kogelo, around 30 miles outside the western Kenyan city of Kisumu in Siaya County.

After Obama won the U.S. presidential election in 2008, Kenyan security forces secured his grandmother’s compound, which previously had no fence or gate around it and lacked electricity. The county’s police commandant Ben Abuga said that the security measures—which include a constant police presence outside her compound and vetting of visitors—would be retained for the time being.
