Chelsea Clinton Dowry: Kenyan Man Offers 40 Goats, 20 Cows
A Kenyan man has offered to pay a dowry of 40 goats and 20 cows for Chelsea Clinton's hand in marriage. The man first made the offer in 2000 to then-president Bill Clinton. During US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton's latest trip to Kenya, the man renewed the offer.
When asked by CNN's Fareed Zakaria about the Chelsea Clinton, the Secretary of State was circumspect, likely as an effort to not offend local customs.
After a pause, Clinton said, "My daughter is her own person, very independent, so I will convey this very kind offer."
Chelsea Clinton has dated boyfriend Marc Mezvinsky for several years. Rumors have swirled that the two are getting married, although no wedding plans have been confirmed.
