Mama Sarah Obama, the grandmother of former US President Barack Obama, has rubbished Malik Obama’s allegations that Barack was born in Mombasa-Kenya, and not Honolulu-Hawaii, United States as formally documented.
“Malik has always been jealous of his younger brother, Barack. I think his jealousy is driven by Barack’s success story. I would like to tell Malik that his renewed hatred towards his brother is uncalled for.
“Barack completed his term as the 44th US President, and, therefore, there’s no need for Malik to try and malign him,” Mama Sarah Obama told a local publication.
Mama Sarah’s remarks comes hours after Malik took to Twitter to post a picture of a birth certificate, which indicated that Barack Hussein was born at the Coast General Hospital on August 4, 1961 to then-26-year-old Barack Hussein Obama — Mama Sarah’s child — and 18-year-old Ann Dunham from Kansas City, in the US.
In quick response, Auma Obama, a sister of both Malik and Barack, took to Twitter to call out Malik over his allegations, saying Malik is “consumed by jealousy”.
“[You are] so blindly consumed by jealousy and bitterness that you will go to any length to slander your younger brother’s name – literally! Just because he has outshone you in every single aspect of his life. Seek relevance elsewhere big brother!” reads Auma’s tweet.
She went ahead to claim that Malik’s “hatred” towards Barack started the moment he (Barack) started rising politically in the US in 1997.
“[In 1987], long before he even knew he would be president, my little brother visited his fatherland and was embraced by all! Malik, you took centre stage in welcoming him!” said Auma.
