PHOTOS: Couple weds in hospital after groom’s accident days to union

Published

on

They say love conquers all. A Burundian couple has lived up to the adage by conducting their wedding in hospital. Charlotte Mukantwari and Gabin Ndayizigiye’s wedding plans were all finalised but days to walking down the aisle, the groom was involved in an accident.

Speaking after the wedding, the groom recalled asking himself lots of questions following the accident that left him in a wheelchair.

“After the accident, I asked myself whether the devil didn’t want me to marry. I very well knew that my wedding was set for July 4 and being an important day for us, it had to go on as planned. If we hadn’t gotten married, I would have felt like God had abandoned me,” the groom said.

Affirming her newly-wed husband’s stance, the bride said that they could not postpone the wedding hence, opted to conduct it in hospital.

“Because of my love for him, not even an accident could not make us push forward the date of our wedding,” she said.

Accident

According to Gabin, they have been dating for a long time and had vowed to live as husband and wife till death. But three days to their big day, he broke his leg after getting hit by a vehicle, rendering him unconscious.

“When I came back to, I found myself lying in a ditch with dirty water and my leg was swollen. At the hospital, they were initially hesitant to tell Charlotte what had befallen me. When she was finally informed about my accident, she promptly came to visit,” Gabin narrated.

The groom further said that the next logical plan of action was to postpone the wedding but the bride had other plans.

“Charlotte would look at me lying on the bed, look at my broken leg and encourage me saying that if God gave me reprieve, our wedding would go on as planned. Her utterances shocked me because another woman wouldn’t want to be seen next to me,” he said.

Gabin then sought the approval of the Catholic Church to conduct the wedding in hospital and the padre accepted.  The hospital management then prepared a room for the two to exchange vows and provided a wheelchair for the groom. Despite the priest hiding the exact time of the wedding to discourage crowds, their unorthodox union attracted a large crowd of onlookers keen on witnessing the triumph of love.

“Our wedding day was great. We received blessings and exchanged rings before I was wheeled back to the ward,” concluded the groom.

Ministers’ Baringo trips elicits discussions on Senator Gideon Moi’s political ambitions

Published

on

It might have largely gone unnoticed but for keen observers, a tour of Baringo County by three Cabinet Secretaries, separately in less than two weeks, could provide a significant bearing on the evolving political landscape.

First to arrive was Agriculture’s Peter Munya and his assistant Linah Jebii Kilimo on June 26 followed by Sicily Kariuki of Water three days later to inspect ongoing works at Chemususu Dam in Eldama Ravine subcounty.

Munya, who was also accompanied by Principal Secretary Harry Kimtai, launched a livestock vaccination exercise in Loruk (Tiaty) and later at Emining in Mogotio sub- county. In both instances, Munya delivered “greetings” from Baringo Senator Gideon Moi.

Significantly, it was also the week that the senator represented President Uhuru Kenyatta during the inauguration of new Malawian President Lazarus Chakwera in Lilongwe.

It is noteworthy that Chakwera’s Malawi Congress Party (MCP) share the same colours with Kanu in red, black and green as we as the cockerel.

“As we celebrate this victory, I wish to express our gratitude to him on behalf of the Moi family for having stood with us when we lost Mzee in early February and having attended the funeral at Kabarak,” Senator said in a message posted on his Facebook page.

“We shall forever remember that very humbling gesture of goodwill at our lowest,” he added.

Fascinating week
Thereafter, Information, Communication and Technology (ICT) Cabinet Secretary Joe Mucheru capped off a fascinating week when he launched 4G Internet connectivity courtesy of Google Loon and Telkom Kenya at Radat in Mogotio subcounty.

Mucheru excited residents when he linked them with President Kenyatta via video interaction and conversation that lasted for about five minutes. The visit also took him to Eldama Ravine where he had a session at the Rift Valley Innovation Centre (RVIC).

During the call, Uhuru urged residents of Baringo to push the sales of their honey and other products through online platforms describing it as ‘probably the best in the world.”

Kibet Cheruiyot alias Amkich Karanja, a youth who spoke to Uhuru on behalf of the residents assured him that they are going to put the 4G internet into good use. “It is a life opportunity to speak to the President,” he said later on.

Clear of politics

The Loon service will initially cover a region spanning about 50,000 sq kms, including Elgeyo-Marakwet, Uasin Gishu, Nakuru, Kakamega, Kisumu, Kisii, Bomet, Kericho and Narok counties.

“I want to see you making online sales of honey in Baringo. It is probably the best in the world,” the President said.

Although Mucheru steered clear of politics, opting instead to focus on the day’s agenda; the ongoing political realignments in the country and the brutal purge meted out on Deputy President William Ruto’s allies may give a clue.

“Senator Moi who is the chairman of ICT Committee in the Senate has been on my case to make sure that we have the connectivity, so I am very happy that today I can actually report to him that we have full connectivity here in Baringo,” said Mucheru.

“I know wherever he is now he is extremely happy he has seen that actually we have been able to fulfill some of the promises we made; that we actually connect the whole country, 100 per cent with 4G,” he stated.

Gideon is trying to carve out a niche for himself in the vote-rich Rift Valley and at

the national arena where he recently guided Kanu into signing a post-election coalition agreement with Jubilee.

While it was previously thought that Uhuru would hand over the baton to Ruto in 2022, recent political tremors have seen the latter pushed to the periphery and out of succession plans.

According to Kiptum Binott, a political analyst and a former civic leader, Uhuru is sending early signals that Moi is his preferred successor. He said this was the first time residents have witnessed three ministers visit the region within a week.

“As a keen political observer and commentator on socio-economic events in the country, I am seeing Uhuru sending signals that he prefers Senator Moi to take over from him,” he said, adding: “The people of Baringo should be prepared to receive more visitors and goodies ahead of the 2022 presidential election,” he said.
