In today’s ‘what the hell’ news, a Kenyan attorney is willing to give up his precious cattle in exchange for Malia Obama’s hand in marriage.

Felix Kiprono told a newspaper in Kenya that he wants to ask President Obama’s for 16-year-old Malia’s hand in marriage. And he’s going to give Obama a dowry of 50 cows, 70 sheep and 30 goats.

“I got interested in her in 2008,” Kiprono said. “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.”

Not he got interested in a 10-year-old in 2008. Can you say pedophile?

“People might say I am after the family’s money, which is not the case. My love is real,” he added. “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.”

Something tells me he may end up on a watch-list after this.

    I think this fool needs to go pray, or something.

  • though i have a problem with this cultural practice (even the English terms “bride price” is inadequate) as it is practiced in our various cultures across the African continent, i find that this article lacks nuance and is just inciteful. it might’ve been valuable if you did more than just approach it from a WTF premise. but anyway… the things clutch publishes these days.

      Yup, I agree with you. It is inciteful. The title actually has the word “buy” and it’s understandable if people feel differently because of that. Are you East African?

    Can these guys wait until this child is of age first and foremost, it is really creepy that he was checking for her in 2008. I got creeped out when a football player (forgot his name) was checking for Milia on his Instragram and being super thirsty about it. Hopefully, the president and the First Lady keep a close eye on their girls and protect them fiercely like any parent would when it comes to dating because guys are going to be extra trying to get chose by these two lovely young ladies.

      Most men are pedophiles. A lot of them just try to hide it because it’s socially unacceptable in a lot of places now.

    My thoughts reading this: “What the h3ll is Barack and Michelle going to do with a bunch of farm animals in the middle of DC/Chicago?” “That girl is 16, why is the Kenyan newspaper even entertaining this foolishness?” “In 2008 Malia was still getting piggyback rides from her daddy. What was this man interested in?” “The next time the Obama’s visit Kenya, this dude better not come around for he is a marked man.”

    I’m pretty sure this is a joke so this guy can get some attention. He apparently succeeded.

    And I understand this is a part of his culture, but it the US, this is a total insult.
