    The grandmother of US President Barrack Obama has told off those persuading her to abandon her Islamic faith saying that their sinister attempts were doomed to fail.
    Putting it candidly, Sarah Hussein Obama told the Seventh Day Adventist Church and other evangelical groups which have been on her prowl that, “She was born a Muslim, she has lived her life in the Islamic faith and she will die a Muslim.”

    Speaking on Iqra FM on Sunday, she accused church organizations of dishonesty and mischievousness in their attempts to have her adopt the Christian faith.

    She made it clear that she was not aware that she was to undergo a baptism ceremony in Kisumu where she had been invited. “Ni warongo, sijakubali kubadilisha dini yangu” (They are not telling the truth. I have never accepted to convert,”) she said.

    According to her, she had been told to attend an inter-religious prayer meeting where even Muslims were to be present.

    But unknown to her, the SDA had arranged an elaborate ceremony at the Jomo Kenyatta Sports ground on Saturday where an Australian evangelist Dr. John Jeremic was to preside over a baptism ceremony to formally convert her to Christianity.

    Family members reacted with anger on the plan to coerce the 87 year-old-grandmother to convert from Islam. Her grandson, Said Onyango Obama, an uncle to the US President said the plans were not done in good faith and [FONT=&quot]were surrounded with dishonesty. [/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]“Why could they invite her to a Christian ceremony when they knew that she was a Muslim,” he asked. He called for tolerance to the family’s diverse religious traditions saying that the Obama family comprised of Muslims and Christians and this was recognized and respected within the family. “Those who visit our home should know that there are Muslims in this family and should respect that,” he said.[/FONT]



    [FONT=&quot]"Mama (Sarah) was born a Muslim and wishes to die a Muslim," he added.[/FONT]

    HABARI KAMILI NI HII HAPA NA SIO KAMA HIYO YAKO AMBAYO IPO EDITED KWA INTEREST ZAKO

    Attempts to convert US President Barack Obama's grand mother to Christianity flopped on Saturday at the 11th hour after family members opposed the move.

    Although Mama Sarah Obama had dressed up for the day, her son, Saidi Obama, and other family members were adamant that she would not attend a baptism ceremony organised by the Seventh Day Adventist Church (SDA).

    Changed her mind

    Mr Saidi said that they were opposed to the move to take Mama Sarah to church since she is a Muslim.

    "I was opposed to it because I believe she was not fully informed about what they were going to do to her. I personally asked her not to attend the function," he said.

    On Saturday, SDA Pastor Tom Obuya arrived at Mama Sarah's Nyang'oma Kogello home to take her to the Jomo Kenyatta Sports ground where the ceremony was to take place. However, he found she had changed her mind on instructions from Mr Saidi.

    Pastor Obuya said that the church had been reaching out to Mama Sarah for the past three weeks.

    "Mama Sarah had assured us that she was converting, and we were ready to baptise her today, but it seems the family has prevailed upon her," said Pastor Obuya.

    The security detail at her home confirmed that there had been arrangements for Mama Sarah to travel the 100 kilometres to Kisumu, but said that apart from the fact that they were to escort her, they did not know much else about the visit.

    Any value

    "I did not understand why they were asking her to attend a Christian ceremony, yet she is a Muslim. I thought her presence in the church would not add any value," Mr Saidi said.

    Family sources told the Sunday Nation that Mama Sarah had prepared for the ceremony and among those who were to accompany her were sisters-in-law Norah Otieno and Consolata Oguna.

    Also, the 30 members of the Nyang'oma Seventh Day Adventist Church had hired a vehicle to take them to Kisumu so they could welcome Mama Sarah to their congregation.

    Her baptism was to mark the end of a three-week convention by the church in Kisumu.

    Mr Saidi said that apart from the faith aspect, Mama Sarah had knee complications that would make travelling such a long distance uncomfortable.

    "She would also have attracted unnecessary attention which is not good for her," he said.

    Kuwa na undugu na Obama si issue, issue ni kwamba kila binadamu ana umuhimu wake hapa duniani.

    Katika nchi za wasomaji vitabu, magazeti na habari za internet, jina Sarah Obama ni maarufu.

    Labda tujiulize jina langu na la kwako limetapakaa kama la sarah Obama?

    To be frank, the closer you are to this privileged family the better financially you will be sooner or later (kama wewe ni mganganjaa). Kumbukeni si Obama tu (prezidaa) anayepeleka pesa za matumizi pale kwa Bi Sarah, habari toka vyanzo vya kuaminika zinasema hata serikali ya Kibaki inatoa shavu la kutosha pale kijijini kwa bi sarah! Sasa labda mumuulize Kibaki kwa nini amepeleka security na huduma zingine pale kama bi Sarah ni mtu wa kawaida!!!!

    So sishangai kwa nini viongozi wa dini wanamtaka bibi huyu, hii haitofautiani na maaskofu na wachungaji wa tz wanavyojazana nyumbani kwa Edward Lowasa kuzindua "note book ya mke wake"

    It is the Seventh Day Adventists who are playing the 'tout'! Pastor Obuya said that the church had been reaching out to Mama Sarah for the past three weeks....Her baptism was to mark the end of a three-week convention by the church in Kisumu... OUTRAGEOUS!!

    Simple. The message is clear "as is" but U can have yr own interpretation. X-Paster posted the Thread like any JF member - let readers judge for themselves (leave it or take it).

    Pole sana, swala likiwa linahusu Uislam au Waislam ni udini, ila ingekuwa ni ukristo... tusingekusikia unauliza swali kama hilo.

    kuna topic moja humu kwenye jukwaa la celebrities forum, tumeambiwa kuwa chameleone ameokoka... walishangilia na kumsifia... Hila ajabu sikukusikia ukiwauliza jamaa umuhimu wa chameleone, wala hatukusikia watu wakisema kuwa ni topic ya udini.
