The fallen ex-United States President Barack Obama's granny will be laid to rest on March 30 (tomorrow), in accordance with the Muslim burial rites.

According to the Kisumu Muslim Association Chair Sheikh Musa Ismail Haji, the late Ms. Sarah will be buried tomorrow morning.

Mama Sarah passed away aged 99 at the Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital, where he had been receiving medication for some time. 

Sheikh Musa dismissed allegations that the deceased had succumbed to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. "Mama has not died of Covid-19 related issues and we want to clarify that she has been sick for some time," maintained Musa. 

It remains unclear how many mourners will be allowed to attend Mama Sarah's send-off, given the current directives that only allow a maximum of 50 persons.
