Dr. David Wachira known to as the American Mukurino caught many by surprise after photos of himself and his wife Cecilia went viral in 2019/2020.
What caught the attention of many is the fact that he had won the heart of a white woman despite being a Mukurino.
In an interview on Jeff Koinange Live, Wachira says he was a lecturer before he applied for a job at the world bank.
Wachira’s family moved to the U.S in 1997. Speaking on whether she found it hard dating a Mukurino, Cecilia responded
It did not bother me, I was intrigued and it brought me closer to him as I found him very different.
people stare at us a lot but I have learned to handle that.
They however face challenges when out there. Sharing an incident, Wachira said
Sometimes people think I’m her driver.
There is a day I went to drop her and I was told to drop her and move on to find a place to park my car.
On a different occasion, he was mistaken for a waiter.
I had a meeting I was hosting and a government official walked in as I was making myself tea and told me ‘anataka chai’
So I gave him mine
Not long after that another official walked in also told me he wanted milo, people assume that being a mukurino one should just stick to preaching.
Despite that, both families love and adore each other.
