JAKARTA — A transgender Indonesian man who shot to fame after it emerged he had worked as Barack Obama’s nanny in the late 1960s wants nothing from “little Barry” but to meet him again some day.
TV crews and reporters have descended on the tiny concrete shack in an east Jakarta slum, where Turdi, 66, now makes a meagre living from hand-washing his neighbours’ clothes.
“I am a big nobody, merely the help, so I expect nothing from Barry. But I certainly wish to see him again. Nothing more,” he told AFP at his home, which sits by a foul-smelling sewage canal.
