Barack Obama Loses Aunt To Cancer
The US president's aunt died in a rehabilitation center after battling with cancer for many years.
Her Immigration lawyer, Margaret Wong told the Boston Herald that her client had been ill since January but didn't accept defeat, "She's been ill for quite some time. She didn't like people to know, because she is so strong," Wong said, according to the Herald. "I don’t think she accepted she was dying. She just kept thinking she needs to go on."
According to the paper, the late Zeituni had also been fighting deportation after it was revealed she was undocumented, four days before the historic 2008 election.
According to an internal report obtained by The Huffington Post, an official leaked the information of her deportation hoax because it was "interesting," "newsworthy" and because "the American public [had] a right to know."
In December 2009, Onyangotold the Associated Press she was troubled over being a political liability to Obama and didn't want her issue to complicate the president's administration.
Aww! How sweet of her. May her soul Rest In Peace.
