Marriage magic! From Uhuru to Raila, politicians married for over 25 years

It’s not every day that we see politicians in successful marriages that have lasted for more than 25 to even 40 years but some are breaking that barrier.

Some might wonder what has made them stick together in this murky world but the truth is they love each other. Below is the list.

1. Barrack Obama and Michelle Obama

Former United States Barrack Obama and his wife Michelle are among the couple who have been married for more than 25 years.

The couple who got married in 1992 recently celebrated their 27th wedding anniversary with Michelle praising Obama for fulfilling all the promises he made to her.

’27 years ago, this guy promised me a life full of adventure. I’d say he’s delivered.

Here’s to our next chapter of becoming empty nesters and discovering what’s next—while still feeling the magic that brought us together all those years ago. Happy anniversary, Barack. 💕’ Michelle wrote

Obama also penned

‘Like the Beatles said: It’s getting better all the time. Thanks, babe, for 27 amazing years!’

Jubilee Christian Church founders, pastor Kathy Kiuna and Bishop Allan Kiuna have been married for 25 years. The couple has been blessed with 3 kids, two daughters and a son.

She might not be a politician but her celebrity status proves that marriage works when work is put in.

Recently Kiuna penned a sweet post thanking his wife for sticking by him at the darkest moments of his life.

‘I wish I could explain how much the light in your eyes has shone in my darkest moments, I wish I can tell stories of how your smile has transformed my emotions in my toughest times.

You have taught me that marriage is not about thinking alike, but thinking as one and regardless of the many tunes life has played on us, some high and others very low, you have made a commitment to always dance with me.

You will forever be my always, and I enjoy doing life with you.

Together is my favorite place to be and forever is the how long I want to be with you. The reason I will always love coming home is because You are my home. Thank you .’
