Obama's stepmother wants to be British
Barrack Obama's stepmother lives in England, loves a British Sunday roast and playing bingo.
Kezia Obama is currently in the US for Barrack's inauguration but will be flying back to the UK straight after and hopes to soon become a British citizen.
Up until her stepson became so famous she was just another Kenyan living in the UK but now she has celebrity status in Bracknell where she lives in a council house.
An excited Kezia flew out to Washington yesterday to meet up with Barrack and family for the historic celebrations as the US swears in its first black president.
Kezia Obama, 66 — who was married to the US President elect’s dad — will formally apply for British citizenship when she returns from his inauguration in Washington.
“There’s nothing quite like a British Sunday lunch. Then there’s my craze for bingo.”
Barack Obama's stepmother - who now lives in Bracknell, Berkshire - is flying to the United States on Thursday for the inauguration of America's first black president. Before leaving from Heathrow, 67-year-old Kezia Obama said she was "so excited".
The grandmother, who was once married to Obama's late Kenyan-born father, said she was looking forward to the celebrations in Washington on Tuesday.
Mrs Obama said: "I'm so happy, very excited and proud. He will do a very good job.
"I cannot wait to see Barack Junior and the rest of the family.
"I'm so excited about going over to Washington and being involved in the celebrations."
