Deal Or No Deal Cows For Ms Clintons Hand In Marriage
Updated : Aug 12, 2009
A Kenyan man has offered Bill Clinton 20 cows and 40 goats in exchange for the hand of his daughter Chelsea in marriage.
Godwin Chepkurgor, 39, a former councillor from Nairobi, told the East African Standard it was the second time he had made the offer.
He says he first wrote to the former US President in the year 2000 but never received a reply.
Mr Chepkurgor made his second bid to marry Chelsea during a recent visit to Kenya by her mother, Hillary Clinton, the US Secretary of State.
Mrs Clinton reportedly promised to tell her daughter all about his interest which he expressed as she was addressing a public forum at the University of Nairobi.
Mr Chepkurgor is already married, however polygamy is permitted in Kenya so - technically - Chelsea could become his second wife if the Clintons take up his offer.
