President Obama’s half-brother is selling two of the president’s handwritten letters to relatives in Kenya for $15k each. Ummmmmm….
Via NY Post:
President Obama’s older half-brother Malik Abongo “Roy” Obama is selling two of Barack’s handwritten letters to his relatives in Kenya for $15,000 each, Page Six has exclusively learned. Malik is selling the two letters on White House-headed note paper, which both say, “Thanks for your prayers and support” and are signed “B.O.” They’re for sale through US collector Gary Zimet’s Momentsintime.com. Zimet told us, “I wrote to Malik and didn’t know if I would get a response. I was astonished when I did. I sent a letter to a post office box in Kenya. I asked him if he had any letters from his brother. I didn’t expect to hear from him ever, but he wrote back and said, ‘I have two letters.’ These letters show great interest on the president’s part in his family, they are priced at $15,000 each. We didn’t go too much into Malik’s relationship with his half-brother, I got a sense it was cordial but not overly warm.” Malik, 55, is the son of Barack Obama Sr., with his first wife and lives in the village of Nyang’oma Kogelo, the Obamas’ ancestral home.
