Godwin Kipkemoi Chepkurgor (not checking spelling on that), is a man from Kenya who has offered to marry Chelsea Clinton for 40 goats and 20 cows. This is the second time the man has extended an offer of marriage to Chelsea. He first proposed when Bill Clinton was President.
Hillary Clinton is currently visiting Kenya on a foreign policy mission. At a Nairobi town hall meeting, she was asked about the proposal made by Godwin Kipkemoi Chepkurgor years ago when Bill Clinton was president.
Clinton responded that Chelsea is independent and will have to make up her own mind. She stated that she will pass along the offer to Chelsea, to the audience’s laughter.
Chepkurgor is very persistent. He then went on CNN and expressed his love for Chelsea to the whole world, as reported here.
He owns an electronics and computer store in Kenya. He is 39 years old, and by all accounts seems to be a decent man. The offer is apparently very generous, especially given the current economic climate.
However, he is already married, but that is not a problem in Kenya, where polygamy is legal. He claims to have checked with his first wife, and says she approved. However, I am guessing this may be a dealbreaker for Chelsea.
Chelsea Clinton will no doubt only marry this man if Kenya agrees to burn Barack Obama’s Kenyan birth certificate. (Sorry, had to get that in).
