Desobamas_stepmother_bingopite all the news coverage, many Americans are still unaware that president elect Obama has a stepmother in the United Kingdom. Kezia Obama, who is now 67, married Barack Obama’s father in a traditional Kenyan village ceremony in 1957. She moved to England to be with her Kenyan-born daughter Auma, the President-Elect’s half-sister, who guided him and introduced him to his extended family when he visited Kenya in 1988. Mrs. Obama is very fond of bingo and has recently launched a charity online bingo game.

In bingo news, Kezia Obama has partnered with Gala bingo to raise £1 million pounds ($1,451,278 at current exchange rates) for Sue Ryder Care, which helps people suffering from Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s and Multiple Sclerosis. The online bingo game became live January 14th and will remain active until January 23rd. Regarding her stepson’s inauguration Mrs. Obama said, “I’m so proud of him. I sent him a message congratulating him and will be in Washington with the family next week. I am delighted to help galabingo.com raise funds for the Sue Ryder Care charity. It is a really positive way of celebrating Barack’s inauguration.”

Mrs. Obama has been a regular bingo player and said she played three times a week in Bracknell, Berks, where she lives in a council house. Mrs. Obama is also a big online bingo fan and so far it seems the partnership with Gala bingo is going well. Gala is one of the largest providers of online bingo in the UK. Mrs. Obama plans to be present at her stepson’s inauguration which will be the most expensive in history, costing $110,000,000. Security will be tight and it has been estimated that approximately 25,000 law enforcement officers from 58 various federal, state and local agencies will be deployed to handle the 2 million people expected to attend the inauguration.
