How I Earned My Ride on ”The Beast” : Auma Obama Reveals

The sister of President Obama stole the show during Obama’s visit for the last 3 days when she became the 1st Kenyan to board the Beast which is only boarded by the first family.


She revealed how she got the opportunity to board the luxurious VIP vehicle during thee presser statement by President Obama at Kasarani.

According to Nairobi News, Twenty-seven years ago, she recalled, she picked up Barack Obama from the airport in an old Volkswagen Beetle.

Obama was coming to see his family in Kenya.

Obama, she recalled, had been a humble man who rode in an old car with her from the airport, even though it kept breaking down.

He slept in the camping bed in her flat and they ate githeri, omena, chapati and sukuma wiki, she told the audience.

She referred to him as “my brother, your brother and our son” who did not get lost despite staying in the US.

Auma said she had reservations about Obama running for president, “but he told me when he took up this job that he had read the job description very, very carefully”.

When President Obama arrived on Friday, Auma rode with him in the official US presidential limousine, popularly known as the Beast.

He was paying her back for the ride in the Beetle, she said.“Twenty-seven years later, what did he do? He rode with me in the Beast, but do I say?” she joked.
