A Kenyan lawyer who alleges to have fallen in love with 16-year-old Malia Obama would like to seek her hand in marriage, and is willing to offer the president 50 cows, 70 sheep and 30 goats to make the nuptial actually happen.
“I got interested in her in 2008. 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 told the outlet”
Kiprono claims to be serious about his love for Malia, which he alleges is genuine and not based on the fact she’s the president’s daughter. He plans to discuss the matter of marriage with number 44 when he visits the country in July.
Per the site, Kiprono said if President Obama agrees to his offer, the engagement party won’t consist of popping bottles.
“If my request is granted, I will not resort to the cliché of popping champagne. Instead, I will surprise her with mursik, the traditional Kalenjin sour milk. As an indication that she is my queen, I will tie sinendet, which is a sacred plant, around her head,” he said.
Malia won’t have the stress of pursuing her dreams or accomplishing any goals if her father allows the wedding (which we all know he won’t) Kiprono insists they will live an easy life where Malia will learn how to milk a cow “cook ugali and preparemursik like any other Kalenjin woman.”
Hey, we all have dreams, right?
