Printer-friendly versionPDF version

Tears of Abuse is the powerful and engrossing new autobiography of a simple but determined woman, battled weary fighting for her health, dignity, financial survival and to restore her family's name. At the center of the story is Zeituni, half sister to U.S. President Barack Obama's late father, a hardworking mother of four who tirelessly works on improving life for her family.

Zeituni takes us on her journey across the ocean where she faces the unthinkable; failing health and is quarantined in a hospital while on vacation in a foreign country. As her story unfolds she becomes a resident of homeless shelter and a subject of deportation. This book gives a cultural insight that reveals abuse not only in Kenya where Zeituni lived but how she was later victimized in the US. She tells how she achieved the vindicated status of permanent resident. Tears of Abuse reveals how this remarkable woman turns the unfathomable into triumph.

Zeituni tells from her personal experience;

  • The role of an African woman in Luo culture
  • Lineage and why a woman needs male offspring
  • Her relationship with Barack Obama Sr, the president’s father
  • Teen parenting and bitter divorce consequences
  • Consequences of choices in one’s life and the courage to move beyond them
     

The book is vailable for $14.99 by going to her website at www.auntiezeituni.com or by calling 216-663-2700.
