Hydra chief to accompany Obama’s grandmother on Hajj
by Anil Bhoyrul – Arabian Business News
Property tycoon Dr Sulaiman Al Fahim is to accompany Barack Obama’s grandmother Mama Sarah to Makkah this year for the Hajj, Arabian Business can reveal.
Hydra Properties CEO Al Fahim – now also working as a UN Ambassador – met Obama’s grandmother during a trip to Kenya last week.
“I found out that she had not been to the Hajj, and that she very much wants to go. As my own mother is no longer with us, our family has a spare place, so I invited her and she has accepted. I’m very much looking forward to it,” he said.
Al Fahim has just been appointed a full UN Ambassadorial status.
UN officials are already making travel arrangements for Obama’s grandmother to visit Mecca with Al Fahim later this year.
