A wedding is a celebration of love and a time to make merry with family, friends and love ones.

But for a couple in Nairobi, all the plans they made for their special day seem to have been thrown in limbo, thanks to Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i.

According to one of the groomsmen, the wedding is expected to take place on August 24, at a popular city entertainment joint, with the after party planned for the same venue.

However, these plans have now been thrown into disarray after Dr Matiang’i ordered for the shutdown of all bars and entertainment joints from 5pm on Saturday, August 24 until 6pm on Sunday, August 25 during the national census exercise.

The couple, their friends and planners of their wedding are now uncertain if the wedding’s after party will really take off.

They are now faced with the dilemma of concluding the wedding ceremony before 5pm, since postponing the event is out of the question.

“This is a wedding that we have been planning for months and everything has already been paid for. From the location to the food and drinks. Family and friends are travelling from far just to be part of this celebration,”said Ben Ouma, one of the groomsman.

WEDDING AFTER PARTY

“But now the wedding committee is confused on what we are going to do with all the food and drinks that is intended to be consumed during the wedding after party,” Ouma lamented.

Wedding after parties, as the name suggests, usually take place after the couple solemnise their union by the exchange of vows and wedding bands.

The parties, in most cases, are held at entertainment joints where family and friends of the newly-weds make merry into the wee hours.

Unfortunately, all those who planned their weddings on the census weekend now risk missing out on the after party.

Dr Matiang’i says the order will help ensure that all will be found at their respective residences so as not to miss out on being counted.

But many Kenyans have voiced strong resentment to the order, citing the great inconvenience it will cause them by confining them inside their houses for two straight nights.

Decomposing bodies of a couple that has been missing for more than a week were found in their house in Laini centre off the Nairobi-Nakuru highway, yesterday.

A foul smell emanating from the house of the 72-year-old-man and his wife, 62, led to their recovery. Police have launched investigations into the incident.

There were conflicting reports about the deaths with some claiming that the two were murdered while others suspected that they could have died of carbon monoxide emitted from a jiko.

Police declined to give names of the deceased until the next of kin are informed. Emotions ran high as locals viewed the bodies.

A village elder, Moses Mwathi, revealed that the couple was working in a quarry before they went missing.

Mwathi said neighbours thought that they had travelled to their rural home but got concerned after a foul smell started emanating from their house.

“On checking they noticed that the house was locked from inside and the bodies could be seen lying on their bed,” he said.

Police gained access into the house after breaking the door. The bodies were taken to the mortuary

Naivasha OCPD Samuel Waweru said initial investigations pointed to carbon monoxide poisoning from a jiko.

“We can’t, however, rule out murder at this moment and only a post-mortem examination will establish the real cause of the death,” said the police boss.

And in the nearby Kinungi village, a 35-year-old farmworker committed suicide by hanging himself in a house.

The body was found by his employer before police were called in. Jim Kimani, a friend to the deceased, said he was in low spirits over debts.

“He claimed that some people he owed money were harassing him but we never thought that he would commit suicide,” Kimani said.

President Uhuru Kenyatta has said Kenyans on Twitter were too hostile to him that is why he left.

Speaking during the launch of the the drive for the signatures for the Building Bridges Initiative, President Uhuru Kenyatta said he would spend so much time on Twitter, going through what people were saying and all he would see were abuses which would get to him.

He said he has been listening to people and talks to them before making decisions, but going to Twitter to see what people were saying was not a pleasant experience for him. He now says he would rather spend time with his wife in the evening before sleeping and wake up to go to work.

Mimi hata huko Twitter, mimi niliondoka huko, nikaona hio kitu ni bure ni matusi tu, unakaa hapo unasoma, haulali, halafu unapiga simu, unaona vile huyo mtu amenitusi, afadhali nilale bana, nipige story na mama kidogo hapo, nilale, niamke, niende kazi, dunia iendelee,” he said.

Uhuru left Twitter in 2018 . He was most followed leader in Sub-Saharan Africa on Twitter with more than three million followers.
