Dr Auma Obama is probably one of the most talked-about woman in the world right now.

This follows the euphoric hug she shared with US President Barack Obama when he arrived in Kenya on Friday.

President Obama’s half-sister then took a ride in the “Beast”, which is one of the most highly protected armoured vehicles used by the president of the world’s most powerful nation.

When Air Force One carrying President Obama touched down, a number of dignitaries, among them Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta, waited patiently for him to disembark.

Among those lined up to receive President Obama and shake his hand was Dr Auma, clad in black trousers and a white blazer
She was at the end of the queue and as President Obama shook his host’s hands, she patiently waited and kept smiling and putting her hands in her trousers’ pockets.

Then came the moment. Everyone was treated to the longest hug of the night, followed by an eye to eye conversation between the two siblings as if nothing else mattered.

As the security agents kept their watch, the two conversed jovially then they boarded the “Beast”.

Dr Auma could be seen through the window adjusting the seat belts on her own as she conversed at ease.

That episode carried the day and was used by local and international media to narrate the welcome that President Obama received in Kenya.

Before the heart-warming hug, Dr Auma had tweeted; “My brother’s coming home and we are over the moon. Welcome little brother!”

This was not the first time, though, that Dr Auma had taken the envied attention of President Obama, as the two have been in a close relationship since they were young.
