MORE: Girl quits school to be third wife of Obama kin
Mary Aoko Ouma is planning to go to Ng’iya shopping centre where she roasts and sells maize, but visitors keep flocking to her home.She attracts attention in the village because her daughter, 19-year-old Sheila Adhiambo, abandoned her studies to get married as the third wife of US President Barack Obama’s step-brother, Malik Abong’o Obama.
Sheila lived with her widowed mother and was a Form Two student at Agoro Oyombe Secondary School in Siaya County, but she gave up school to become Mrs Obama. “My daughter went missing on October 1, and I did not know where she was. Neighbours soon came to my home and asked me if it was true I had married off my daughter to one of the Obamas,” Ms Ouma says.
“When I heard about the marriage, I recalled Malik’s frequent visits to my home. Five days later, she came and told me to accompany her to school because she wanted to clear with the school and leave officially. “I explained to her why it was important to finish her studies before getting married, but Sheila told me the man in her life was showering her with a lot of love.”
