Huruma, Kenya - The 86 year old granny of Barack Obama reported to newspapers that Wednesday robbers broke into her modest home to steal her solar panels. She was quoted as saying that she now fears for her safety.

The burglars broke down the octogenarian's kitchen door to steal solar panels she had on her old tin roof. The thieves were unsuccessful, but left a terrible mess.

The East African Standard quoted the 86 year old Sarah Hussein Obama, "These are just people from around who think that Obama has been sending me a lot of money". She said that Barack Obama does not send her a dime even though he is very wealthy and both of his books have sold millions.

Sarah said "I am getting the hell out of here because the thieves might return because they think Barack is very generous to his family, but he is a tightwad. But Barack did say once he becomes King of the United States, like Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe, he will start sending our family money for more goats from the American taxpayer's pockets, but I can't wait that long, because maybe next time the robbers might kill me".

So the 86 year old grandmother of Barack Obama is packing up her suitcase and chickens and finding more safer quarters. She told the newspapers that she is going to be moving in with Barack Obama's brother, George Hussein Onyango Obama, who lives in a one room tin hut, in the shanty town of Nuruma on the outskirts of Nairobi, Kenya. "At least there the thieves will know that Barack doesn't take care of his brother so they will leave our family alone until he becomes King of America, Allah willing", said Sarah as she gathered up a couple of chickens to get ready to move.
