Human rights activist Boniface Mwangi is celebrating 12 years in marriage today.
Boniface is married to Hellen Njeri Mwangi, and together they are blessed with three kids.
Coincidentally, today is also Women’s Day, Boniface celebrated both big occasions in a social media post.
“14 years ago we met. Two years later on 8th March, 2008, we got married. Marriage is a commitment and when things get rough, remember to be kind and respectful to each other. Let the love flow. It’s been a great journey together. Here is to another 50! #HappyWomensDay2020,” he wrote.
In an earlier interview, Njeri said he was attracted to Boniface because he had a motorbike.
“By the way nilimuona juu ya bike, nilitaka kuongea na yeye juu alikuwa na bike (I saw him atop a motorbike, I wanted to talk to him because he had a motorbike),” she stated.
She, however, explained that the activist swept her off her feet when she got to know more about him.
“After nibonge na yeye, after niget hiyo chance, hiyo ingine he just won my heart (I got the chance to speak to him and he won my heart),” Njeri added.
On his part, Mwangi explained that he met Njeri when he had just bought a motorbike.
In those days, motorbikes were very few in town. As such, owning one was a symbol of prestige.
Mwangi had parked his motorbike outside a popular eatery in town. Njeri approached him and asked for a ride.
