KENYAN DREAMS OF MARRYING CHELSEA (CLINTON)
Offered Bill Clinton 40 goats, 20 cows, but never heard back.

NAIROBI,Kenya --- A Kenyan says he offered Bill Clinton 40 goats and 20 cows for his daughter's hand in marriage five years ago -- and is still waiting for an answer.

Godwin Kipkemoi Chepkurgor told the East Africa Standard newspaper last week that he wrote Clinton asking for chelsea's hand in 2000 during the then president's visit to Kenya.

Chepkurgor, a 36-year old elected city councilor in Nakuru, recounted writing to the U.S. president through the Kenyan government.

He described his plans for a grand wedding presided over by South African Nobel Peace Prize winner Archbishop Desmond Tutu. He named then President Daniel arp Moi and the president of his university as references.

"Had I succeeded in wooing Chelsea, I would have had a grand wedding," he told the Standard in an interview published during Clinton's recent visit to Kenya.

But first, a background check

Chepkurgpr said his letter praised Clinton's leadership and commended his wife, Se. Hilary Rodham Clinton, for standing by her husband "like an African woman", in the face of the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

The electrical engineering granted said he promised to pay his would be father in law 20 cows and 40 goats a=in dowry in accordance with African traditions.

But he said the letter prompted security check -- on him, his family and his classmates, and he was summoned to the foreign Ministry in Nairobi for a meeting that he missed because of his graduation from university.

A National Security Intelligence Service officer told the Standard the letter probably never made it out of the office.

"We gathered that this man was a teetotaler and a staunch Christian who seemed to have been struck by Chelsea, and I thought maybe he just took the joke too far', he said.

Chepkurger vowed to remain single until he gets and answer to his proposal to marry Chelsea, 25.
