Mama Sarah Obama, the grandmother to former US President Barack Obama, has died, the family has said.
Mama Sarah passed away aged 99 years on Monday morning at the Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Hospital in Kisumu.
According to sources at the facility, she had been admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) for management of diabetes.
A neighbour said she had been battling diabetes and old age for nearly two years that saw her admitted to various hospitals in Siaya and Kisumu.
Last week she was admitted at Avenue hospital before she was moved to JOOTRH on Friday where she succumbed.
Her death was confirmed by the hospital Chief Executive Dr George Rae but declined to offer more details.
