Obama family

The Obama family matriarch passed away in a Kenyan hospital at the age of 99.

“My family and I are mourning the loss of our beloved grandmother, Sarah Ogwel Onyango Obama, affectionately known to many as “Mama Sarah,” but known to us as “Dani” or Granny,” the former president said on Twitter, alongside a photo of himself as a child with his grandmother. “We will miss her terribly, but we will remember her long and remarkable life with gratitude.”
