Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru is set to wed his fiancé lawyer Kamotho Waiganjo next month.
The two will tie the knot in a Kikuyu traditional wedding ceremony known as Ngurario, according to Nairobi News.
The event will be held at Kiamugumo primary school, Kirinyanga County on Saturday, July 13th.
The two got engaged in an invite-only party held at Lord Erroll Hotel in Nairobi early this year after dating for a couple of years.
“It was a beautiful ceremony. The time was right for us to take our relationship to the next level,” Waiganjo said.
Governor Waiguru described the soft-spoken lawyer as an "exceptional man."
"I was completely surprised [by the engagement]. We had not been talking about formalizing our relationship so I did not expect it. We had just come from holidays and we were celebrating his birthday as we do with close friends every year."
“He is an exceptional man. There is no other like him. He was my pillar at the time and has always been. Kind, patient, supportive and level headed."
The couple is said to have met ten years ago at Likoni Ferry in Mombasa and became friends before the relationship turned romantic.
Waiguru and Kamotho are both divorced from their former spouses.
