Couple that met during alcohol rehabilitation wed – VIDEO

A couple that was deep in alcoholism found love in a rehabilitation programme and has now wedded in Kiambu.

John Muroki and Jane Wanjiru met in the ‘Kaa Sober’ campaign to rehabilitate alcoholics and a relationship blossomed.

The two started out as friends then advanced to dating and last weekend held a wedding.

County officials in charge of the ‘Kaa Sober’ programme were present during the wedding.


“Ikakuwa ni urafiki, mwisho mwisho ime end up kuwa ni harusi, yeah…friends for life,” the excited bride said.

Mr Muroki thanked the Kiambu county government for offering him a new lease of life with the rehabilitation programme that has now earned him a wife.

“Tulienda tukaingia hiyo programme ya ‘kaa sober’ sasa after hapo tukaenda counselling huko… sasa mimi nikapata mtu na unaona sasa mambo, sasa hii mtoto hata kama atazaa mapacha nitawaname MCA, governor na Karugu,” the groom said.

The programme by the Kiambu County government has been rehabilitating alcoholics and offering them menial work such as collecting garbage and unblocking drainage at a Sh400 daily wage.
