Barack Obama’s mother was secretly in contact with his estranged father during his entire childhood without the future president’s knowledge, a new book claims.

Ann Dunham gave Barack Obama Sr regular updates about his life during the 1960s and 70s and even sent him school reports.

It was not until the 1980s that Mr Obama became aware of the contact between the two – but he still did not forgive his father for being an absent dad.

The claims are made in a new book by Mr Obama’s half sister Auma in which she reveals that their father was routinely ‘exploited’ by the Obama family in Kenya.

She said he was a ‘prisoner of his principles’ who would do endless favours for others even if they had a history of failing to reciprocate.

Barack Obama, 50, was born in Hawaii in 1961 but soon after his parents split and his father went to Harvard University then returned to Kenya where he remarried.

Father and son met just one more time, at Christmas in 1971, leaving the future president with a void in his life he spoke moving about in his memoir ‘Dreams of My Father’.
