A lawyer in Kenya, Felix Kiprono, has expressed interest in the eldest Obama daughter, Malia Obama, with the hopes of seeking her hand in marriage. According to a creepy report by The Nairobian, Kiprono is offering a bride price of 50 cows, 70 sheep and 30 goats.

According to the report, Kiprono is ready and willing to meet with President Barack Obama to discuss the issue when the president visits the country in July.

“I got interested in her in 2008. As a matter of fact, I haven’t dated anyone since and promise to be faithful to her. I have shared this with my family, and they are willing to help me raise the bride price,” Kiprono said.

Kiprono continued, by vowing that his love is true, and he has no ulterior motive.

“People might say I am after the family’s money, which is not the case. My love is real,” Kiprono insisted. “I am currently drafting a letter to Obama asking him to please have Malia accompany him for this trip. I hope the embassy will pass the letter to him. I will hand it over to the U.S. ambassador with whom we have interacted several times.”

According to Kiprono, all he needs is the go, everything else, from the entire engagement celebration to the nuptials are planned out:

“If my request is granted, I will not resort to the cliché of popping champagne. Instead, I will surprise her with mursik, the traditional Kalenjin sour milk. As an indication that she is my queen, I will tie sinendet, which is a sacred plant, around her head,” he said.

“I will propose to her on a popular hill in Bureti near my father’s land, where leaders and warriors are usually crowned. The place is called Kapkatet, which means ‘victory,’ ” he said, adding, “Ours will be a simple life. I will teach Malia how to milk a cow, cook ugali and prepare mursik like any other Kalenjin woman.”

Unfortunately for Kiprono, Obama has yet to respond … he may be waiting for a long time …
