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?
Why would she be talking about Barack SENIOR, being born in Kenya and she watched him be born?...It would make no sense for her to comment on the obvious...
“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’.
This women who is always referred to as Obama's grandmother is no blood relation to him. She is Obama's grandfather's third wife,Sarah Onyango Obama. The mother of Barack Obama Senior was his second wife, Habiba Akumu Obama. She ultimately left her husband and (3) children. Third wife Sarah was born in 1922 and Barack Sr. in 1936. That would mean that she was fourteen at the time of that birth.
Akumu Obama and Barack Obama Sr.
No, she was the FIRST WIFE of Obama grandfather, witnessing the birth of second wife’s baby, Barack Senior.
She is his step-grandmother.
Read slowly, she, Sarah, is not BHO Senior's mother, but rather another wife of BHO Senior's father. They were Muslims, or at least BHO's Kenyan grandfather was, and could have more than one wife at a time.
So it's possible she would be present at the birth of BHO Sr, but not "giving birth" to him.
But that is not what the WND translations of the interview say. They say she insists that she was present, in Momabasa, when BHO Jr. was born.
She wasn’t Barack Senior’s mother, but another of his father’s wives.
But why ascribe such a confusion to her?
