Obama’s grandmother to help fight tsetse fly

Nice to see that she’s trying to do good also.

ADDIS ABABA (Reuters) – U.S. President Barack Obama’s step-grandmother will use her newfound celebrity status to help eradicate the tsetse fly, an insect that causes sleeping sickness, the African Union (AU) said Monday.

Sarah Obama, 87, was given a spray pump and enough insecticide to treat 3,000 animals — which like humans can be infected by the insect — by an AU team that visited her village of Kogelo in western Kenya last month.

“Mama Sarah very much appreciated the gift and … vowed in her local language that she will be the goodwill ambassador in her area to eradicate tsetse flies,” the AU said.

Some 37 African countries are affected by tsetse and sleeping sickness or trypanosomiasis.

I’m sure the republicans will somehow spin this as Obama and his conspiratorial family are trying to infect America with some foreign disease. D.
