A Kenyan Diva made headlines worldwide after she penned a letter in response to a widely circulated offer of cattle by a Nairobi lawyer, Felix Kiprono for one of US President Obama’s daughters’ hand in marriage. She suggested that he reconsiders his offer and consider marrying her instead.
Felix Kipromo got more than he asked for when a 27 year old elegant, hardworking single Kenyan lady of Kamba, Ann Kioko wrote a long letter are a reply to the Lawyers’s open letter to the American president, in which she whole heartedly inscribed her own reasons why she should be considered instead of Malia.
Read the contents of the letter below:
“Dear Felix Kiprono,
I write this letter with a lot of expectations and prayers for a positive response.
It has been long since I visited my Facebook account; I have been up and down with life hassles. I live in a simple house in the outskirts of Nairobi and have to wake up very early to go to work to avoid traffic jam, but I am not always lucky in the evenings.
Of late, I think Kenyans have really grown rich, they have bought so many cars, I am yet tot though.
So today I decided to spare little airtime for bundles and accessed Facebook only to find headline that you have offered all those herds of livestock to Malia.
If I were in Nigeria, I would use ‘Tufyakwa’ or’ Chineke’ (Oh my God), because I am not amused at all.
Since I saw you going to court to urge the Chief Justice to swear in Deputy President, Hon Ruto as president sometimes ago, I got interested in you!
I have always been fascinated in you since then and have followed you on Twitter. I also friended you on Facebook but you have not accepted my friend request yet.
All the same, I took time to go through your pictures, I got smitten by this picture you have some good-looking, seemingly designer lipstick on your lips. I have been looking for that shade to no avail. The more the reason I am very unhappy all that expertise is going to Malia.
I am 27-year-old (turned 27 on 2nd May) beautiful single Kamba lady but have been raised in Nyahururu. I am well educated and cultured, with an almost same complexion as Malia and a beautiful smile.
One of my BFFs is Kalenjin and has taught me how to prepare Mursik and cook brown ugali. I have also interacted with Lawyers in my job, they are very nice people.
In my village in Weru, Nyandarua District, we have a big shamba where all the livestock can be grazed sufficiently. We are located near Lake Ol Poloisat, so they will never lack in water and just a few meters down, there’s a cattle dip. Look, they will be very well taken care of.
Actually we could start some business of exporting milk to other countries; I am very hardworking woman and within no time, will build our own White House.
Kiprono, please recall the offer to President Obama and consider my application, we can explain to him when he comes to Kenya.
