Yes, Osama bin Laden had a mistress. Apparently she’s been telling her story for years. Don’t know how I missed it. Kola Boof is a figure who has been in the internationally popular news media headlines many times but who still remains a mystery to many. It was only when the Egyptian/Sudanese-American award-winning novelist, poet, television writer and activist spoke openly and candidly about her love affair with terrorist Osama bin Laden that she gained the most notoriety.
Kola Boof was born Naima Bint Harith in 1969 in Omdurman, Sudan to Arab Egyptian archeologist Harith Bin Farouk and his wife Jiddi, a Gisi-Waaq Oromo. Her birth parents were murdered in her presence (at the age of 9) for speaking out against slavery and other atrocities by the Sudanese government. In 1979, she was adopted and thereafter raised in Washington, D.C. by Black Americans, Marvin and Claudine Johnson. In 1993 Kola Boof became a citizen of the United States and in 1994 she returned to North Africa to pursue a career in modeling and acting.
In 1996, she was kidnapped and forced to become the mistress of Osama Bin Laden. A media frenzy ensued and she lost her writing post at NBC’s Days of Our Lives after sponsors became nervous. CNN has called Kola Boof the most controversial woman in the world and MSNBC and FOX both featured Kola Boof in two-part interviews where she was introduced as the “former Mistress of Osama Bin Laden”.
