A deluded individual who works as a lawyer in the city has come out to declare his undying love for Obama’s daughter, Malia. Kiprono dreams of marrying the 16 year old and is ready to pay 50 cows, 70 sheep and 30 goats as bride price.
“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,” he told The Nairobian.
“People might say I am after the family’s money, which is not the case. My love is real,” he said, adding that, “I am currently drafting a letter to Obama asking him to please have Malia accompany him for this trip. I hope the embassy will pass the letter to him. I will hand it over to the US Ambassador with whom we have interacted several times.”
This is not the first time Kiprono is making headlines. Last year, he moved to court seeking to have William Ruto sworn in as president when Uhuru travelled to The Hague for his ICC case.
Should U.S president Obama grant him his wish, Kiprono plans to propose to Malia on a popular hill in Bureti.
“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.
“I will propose to her on a popular hill in Bureti near my father’s land where leaders and warriors are usually crowned. The place is called Kapkatet, which means ‘victory’,adding, “ours will be a simple life. I will teach Malia how to milk a cow, cook ugali and prepare mursik like any other Kalenjin woman,” he added.
I don’t even have words for this lad!
