An aunt of former President Barack Obama has died at her home in Kenya, according to reports. Mama Hawa Obama died five days after being released from the hospital on November 25. At the time of her death, she was 80 years old. Obama has yet to comment on her death, nor has it been determined whether he will travel to Kenya to meet with his family. Mama Hawa’s death comes just months after Sarah Hussein Obama, the Obama family matriarch, died in Kenya at the age of 99.
