Kenyans On Social Media Respond To Mama Sarah Obama`s Death

Kenyans on Monday woke up to the news of Mama Sarah Obama`s death. She was the grandmother to former US president Barack Obama.

ODM party leader, Raila Odinga remembered Sarah as a matriarch saying that she single-handedly kept the family going long after her husband departed.

In between, Mama Sarah Obama became a symbol of the resilience and confidence of the African woman with a unique capacity to face the challenges of life. She utilized her grandson Patrick Barack Obama`s success to promote girls` education and fight social ills through her Foundation.

Twitter user Shyne Kibunga said that the people of Siaya and the world at large have lost a legend. Sarah had been sick for a while and died while undergoing treatment at the Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital in Kisumu. She was admitted to the hospital on Sunday morning.

Social media users wished the Obama family well with some praying that they may find strength during this difficult moment. Austin Tunoi tweeted, "Mama Sarah Obama did not die. Old people do not die but rest. She rested from her industrious life."
