“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,” said Felix Kiprono, a Kenyan lawyer who wants to marry First Daughter Malia Obama. According to a Kenyan newspaper, Kiprono is serious and has written a letter to President Obama about his intentions, which he says are honorable. He plans to ask the US Ambassador to present the letter to the President in July, when Mr. Obama is scheduled to visit Kenya, which incidentally is his father’s birthplace.

“People might say I am after the family’s money, which is not the case. My love is real,” Kiprono insisted. “I hope the embassy will pass the letter to him. I will hand it over to the U.S. ambassador with whom we have interacted several times.”

He’s prepared just in case the Obamas accept his request and traditional gift offer.

“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,’” he said, 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.”

There has been no indication that the First Family is even aware of this.

Can’t you just see cattle, sheep and goats grazing on the White House lawn?
