Mama Sarah Onyango Obama, who promoted education for girls and orphans in her rural Kogelo village, died at the Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital, Kisumu at 4.45 am on Monday, March 29. Her death was confirmed by her daughter, Marsat Obama.

“She died this morning. We are devastated,” Onyango told The Associated Press on a phone call.

Mourning the loss of his grandmother, Barack shared an old photo of himself posing with his late grandmother and wrote: "My family and I are mourning the loss of our beloved grandmother, Sarah Ogwel Onyango Obama, affectionately known to many as “Mama Sarah” but known to us as “Dani” or Granny. We will miss her dearly, but we’ll celebrate with gratitude her long and remarkable life."



Mama Sarah Onyango Obama will be buried on Tuesday, March 30,  before midday and the funeral will be held under Islamic rites.
