Kiminini MP Chris Wamalwa has revealed how falling in love made him lose track in his journey to become a Catholic priest.

He said his ambition to become a priest changed when he spotted a beautiful lady, now his wife, while in fourth year at university.

Mr Wamalwa, who chairs the Catholic MPs Spiritual Support Initiative (CAMPSSI), said he had been faithful to his call to priesthood up to the first three years of his university education.

He told Catholic faithfuls at Nyamagwa Parish in Kisii County on Sunday that he was unable to keep up with the demands in fourth year when he sported a beautiful lady.

“While in fourth year, things changed. I met a lady who was very beautiful, I was unable to resist and I married her, she is now my wife,” he said amidst laughter from the crowd.

The MP further enraptured the crowd by claiming that his wife had been siring only boys for him.

“The other day we had to travel all the way to the Vatican where we met the Pope and asked him to bless us with a baby girl. We now have one,” he said.
