Obama`s grandma injured after car rolls in Kenya

Sarah Obama was travelling to her home in the village of Kogelo, in western Kenya, when the accident happened.



Nairobi: A relative of Barack Obama says the
president`s step-grandmother suffered minor injuries after a
car she was travelling in rolled over.

The relative today said that Sarah Obama was travelling to
her home in the village of Kogelo, in western Kenya, when the
accident happened on Saturday night.

He said the vehicle lost control and rolled as the driver
attempted to overtake a truck near the Kisumu airport. The
relative asked not to be named because he is not authorised to
speak for the family.

Sarah Obama is the second wife of Obama`s paternal
grandfather. Obama referred to her as "Granny" in his memoir,
"Dreams from My Father," and described meeting her during his
1988 trip to his father`s homeland and their awkwardness as
they struggled to communicate.
