Malik Obama who is the former US president Barack Obama’s half brother has once again attacked the ex-head of state.
Malik Obama said his brother became a snob when he ascended to the presidency of the most powerful nation on earth and abandoned his Kenyan family when they needed him the most.
In a virtual interview with the New York Post,
Malik Obama disclosed that he noticed Barack Obama wanted to be worshiped after he became successful.
“He was the kind of person that wants people to worship him and I don’t do that,” Malik pointed out.
However, Malik Obama claimed, in his book, that his brother did not care about his Kenyan family.
In the memoir, the 62-year-old said his aunt, Hawa Auma Hussein, who was the only surviving sibling of their father, Barack Hussein Obama Snr, lived in abject poverty in the US.
Malik wrote that he tried asking the then-US president to help their aunt but Barack Obama declined, claiming he was broke.
“It was awkward as I tried to convey Auntie Hawa’s wishes to her nephew,” He lamented.
“She wanted him to look out for her, build her a house, I told him he owed it to her, to the family for him to do anything, something,”
he wrote in his memoirs, Big Bad Brother from Kenya.
Malik further wrote of another aunt who died in pitiable conditions in 2014 and the 44th US head of state could not raise money on time to transport her body to Kenya for burial.
“I don’t understand how somebody who claimed to be a relative or a brother can behave the way that he’s behaving, be so cold and ruthless, and just turn his back on the people he said were his family,” Malik wrote.
The older Obama, who never wastes a moment to express his hatred for his successful brother, caused a social media stir a month ago after alluding that Barack Obama was born in Kenya.
