“Obamas grandmother would be Barack SENIOR mother... Isn’t it a redundant statement for a mother to to say she watched herself giving birth to her own son?”
No, as I said, you are placing your own Christian/American mindset over a muslim/African way of life.
Barack Obama’s GRANDMOTHER is his father’s sort of stepmother.
Sarah is his grandmother by being his grandfather’s THIRD WIFE. Barack SENIOR was born to Obama’s SECOND WIFE. Therefore, the third wife (the ‘grandmother’ in question) watched her sister wife give birth to Obama SENIOR. After Obama SENIOR’S birth mother left the ‘marraige’ and tribe, Sarah, the third wife, took over as SENIOR’S ‘mother’.
In 1961 Sarah was living in Jericho which is a suburb of Nairobi. Sr considered her house his home. He had prepared to take the exam from the American Embassy that was to qualify him for scholarship to go to U of HI, with two missionary teachers.
Yes, His biological mother had left his father by then.
Who gave the interview that said they called SADO “Toot Annie”? That is where the “toot” came from that BO later called his grandmother.
Was it his aunt? Or a half sister?
