PHOTOS:Kenya’s ‘youngest’ PhD holder weds in budget wedding 

Published

on

A Ksh350, 000 budget, a guest list of 42 people,  a Ksh40, 000 wedding gown, a simple church setting at Kenyatta University, and a partner she has known for close to ten years now are all it took for Dr Purity Ngina to add the title wife to her profile.

Dr Purity Ngina tied the knot with the love of her life, Germano Mugambi, on Friday, February 22.

The academician, who earned her Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree in Biomathematics from Strathmore University last year July, says she is not impressed by the colour, razzmatazz, and flamboyance that have – for long – characterised urban weddings in Kenya.

She says Ksh350, 000 was “just enough” to hold the ceremony, including using a part of that money to visit her elderly grandmother in Nyeri.

“My partner and I did not want to bother people with harambees, neither did we want to hold a big wedding in a bid to show off. Growing up, I was taught to live according to my means. Of course, we could afford a more expensive ceremony, but again, I am fully cognizant of a future that lies ahead of us. Life doesn’t start and stop on wedding day,” Dr Ngina told EDAILY.

“With the budget of Ksh350, 000, Ksh123, 000 went to food, which we bought at Safari Park Hotel. That was enough to feed the 42 people, who attended our nuptials. My wedding gown cost Ksh40, 000; and I thought that that was quite much, given I am used to wearing mtumba clothes,” said Dr Ngina.

She says the motivation behind her “small” wedding was the fact that “only few people genuinely care about your welfare”.

“You won’t last” Masanduku’s ex-wife tells current girlfriend after meeting

Published

on

Comedian JB Masanduku was recently in a rather slippery state after his current girlfriend met his ex-wife.

The two women met just a few months after
Masanduku and Tina Kaggia finalized their publicized divorce.

“Tina met my fiancée, Jackie Karanja and they talked. What I remember her telling Jackie is that we won’t last. Jackie laughed about it. I don’t know if she is happy for me simply because of her sentiments [When he meet my wife-to-be]. She even said ‘JB is loved by many so this may not go far’.” JB told Kiss100.co.ke

The two who separated in 2017 after a 2014 civil ceremony at the Attorney General’s chambers, confessed that they rushed things since they only met and agreed to marry after 11 days.

“We started dating as a joke and even wrote on social media. We received backlash, of course, and finally, we said we needed to officiate everything. We went to her parents and we did our wedding, despite her being seven years older than me.”

On moving on, he said:

“From my end, I would say, I am happy for her. The fact that Tina flaunted her new bae on social media in December proves she is happy. I am glad that Tina has also moved on as well.”

“I have already done the first part of the dowry payment to her parents, in Kikuyu called ‘Kuhada Ithigi’. The ceremony was so that he could meet the parents and book a day to officially present the dowry which will be soon and before the end of the year, I will have a white wedding,” he said.

“We have dated, for eight months and in January this year we made it known officially to both our families.”
