Thugs Break Into Obama`s Grandmother`s Home In Kenya..

There was a robbery attempt at the rural home of US presidential candidate Barack Obama’s grandmother.

Reportedly, thugs sneaked into the residence of Mama Sarah Obama, broke into her kitchen and used a ladder to climb to the roof.

The kitchen also serves as a store for construction materials and food.

However, nothing was stolen, although they broke the padlock.

Siaya DC Boaz Cherutich, OCPD Johnstone Ipara and CID boss Jacob Wafula visited the home in Kogelo village to investigate the incident, on Wednesday.

They said a police patrol base would be set up in the area immediately.

Police are hunting for the suspects whose motive remains unclear.

Mr Ipara said they suspected the thugs were after the solar panel on top of the main house, but were unsuccessful in their attempt to remove it. He said the security light was found missing, adding, “they could have removed it to avoid being spotted from afar.”

The elderly woman said she retired to bed between 1am and 2am, and did not hear any movement outside, as it was drizzling.

She was shocked when she woke up to find the kitchen door open and a ladder outside. “These are just people from around who think that Obama has been sending me a lot of money,” she said.

Mrs Obama said she feared for her safety and had raised the issue of her security with the local chief.

Mr Cherutich said a contractor who was building a perimeter fence round the home had said it would be complete by next week.

Last month, the family put up a barbed wire fence around the home to keep off intruders.
