Unlike 2017, when politics dominated the headlines, 2018 saw Kenyans turn a new leaf, more so politicians.
From hitting the campaign trail the previous year, a number of them made 2018 another memorable one for them and their loved ones by walking down the isle. Some of these weddings even saw the head of state grace them!
Murang’a Senator Irungu Kang’ata tied the knot with his wife, Mary Wambui back in September in a colourful wedding graced by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
The wedding was held at Gathinja Catholic Church in Kahuhia constituency, Murang’a county.
The couple picked nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura and his wife Mukami as the best couple for their yellow-themed wedding.
August this year also saw Emurua Dikirr MP Johanna Ng’eno bid farewell to bachelorhood after he married the love of his life Nayianoi Ntutu at a colourful ceremony that was attended by DP William Ruto.
The wedding ceremony was held at the Emurua Dikirr Primary school in Narok County.
The ceremony was a mix-up of Maasai and Kipsigis cultures, symbolic of Ngeno’s political leadership as a Kipsigis MP representing a constituency in Maasai land.
Kenya’s shortest MCA Cornelius Kibet aka Sarasar married his lover Mercy at his home in Kapkeringon Village in Nandi county in December.
Samburu West MP Naisula Lesuuda’s wedding was probably the highlight of the year.
The hot MP tied the knot with the love of her life, Robert Kiplagat in a green and gold themed wedding which was held in Samburu and attended by close friends, family and politicians.
The wedding took place in November.
Senator Muthama’s daughter
She may not be a politician (Maybe she is aspiring to be one) but we could not wrap up this list without mentioning about this colorful wedding.
In August, Patricia and her longtime boyfriend Evans Omondi Odiero walked down the aisle in a flashy ceremony that went down at Rea Vipingo.
Top politicians attended the wedding.
