Kenyan lawyer makes a fabulous offer for Malia Obama's hand in marriage

President Obama's 16-year-old daughter Malia is one lucky teenager.  A lawyer in Kenya is offering to marry her "not for money, but for love."  And to sweeten the pot, he will offer President Obama 50 cows, 70 sheep, and 30 goats for her.

So far, the White House has had no comment as President Obama no doubt weighs the pros and cons of the offer

Sky News reports that Felix Kiprono told Kenya daily The Nairobian that he "got interested" in Malia in 2008. President Obama was then running for office for the first time and Malia was 10.

Mr Kiprono, age unknown, hasn't dated anyone since, and promises to be faithful to her.

He claims that he wants to marry Malia for love, not money. "People might say I am after the family's money, which is not the case. My love is real," he is quoted as saying.

Mr Kiprono reportedly plans to ask POTUS for his daughter's hand when he visits Kenya in July, and is also drafting a letter asking President Obama to bring Malia with him. President Obama's father was of Kenyan origin.

Mr Kiprono says he wants to propose to Malia in the tradition of the Kalenjin tribe - by tying a 'sacred' plant around her head and feeding her "mursik" or sour milk.

"I will propose to her on a popular hill in Bureti near my father's land where leaders and warriors are usually crowned," he told The Nairobian.

He said he would teach Malia "how to milk a cow, cook ugali and prepare mursik like any other Kalenjin woman."

What red-blooded American teenage girl wouldn't love to learn how to milk a cow or make ugali?  The prospect sends their little hearts afluttering. 

If I were the president, I would hold out for a herd of elephants.  Can you imagine those ISIS cutthroats having to face tusked pachyderms?  They'd at least be as effective as whatever the president's current policy is toward the terrorists.

It's a little concerning that the lawyer fell in love with a 10-year-old, but beside that, the guy seems like quite the catch.  Malia is a smart young woman, and I'm sure she'll make the right choice – even though President Obama could use the goats to keep the White House lawn properly manicured.
