Here’s one member of the Obama extended family that so far has been overlooked in this series of articles: Half-sister Auma. As usual, there are mysteries surrounding this Obama, too. One mystery involves when, exactly, Auma was born.
She’s anywhere from a year to three years older than her half-brother Barry Obama. For example, a 2012 TIME Entertainment story about Auma’s recent memoir states that Auma is older than her half-brother Barry “by one year.” Barry, we’re told, was born in August 1961, so Auma must have been born in 1960.
