President Obama’s Grandmother Recovering After Car Accident

President Obama’s grandmother, Sarah Obama, is home recovering from an accident that, judging by the condition of the vehicle, could have been much worse.

“God is with me, because if you could have seen the wreckage that we came out of safe, one would wonder,” Sarah Obama said Monday.

Police in the town of Kisumu say the 87-year-old was traveling to her home Saturday night when the driver lost control, and the vehicle rolled into a ditch.

All five people in the car, including her two bodyguards, were taken to a hospital for treatment.  All were released with minor injuries.

A hospital spokesperson says Sarah Obama was bruised and in shock when she arrived at the hospital. She was released about two hours later.

“You can see I was not injured save for this small scar on my right hand and I am not even using a walking stick,” Obama said.

She said friends from as far away as the United States and the Middle East have been calling to check on her, but she assures them, “Hakuna tabu!” That means ‘no problem’ in Swahili.

Kenya’s Nation Television has broadcast video of the wrecked car and the road where the accident occurred.
