Party after Party! Murang’a Woman Rep celebrates her birthday after colorful wedding
Barely two days after her colourful traditional wedding, Murang’a County Woman Rep Betty Maina is celebrating her 33rd birthday today.
Ms Maina, who tied the knot over the weekend with fellow legislator Eric Wamumbi (Mathira MP), has reflected on a life filled with God’s goodness and abundance.
In a message shared on her special day, Ms Maina has expressed her gratitude for the balance of successes and challenges in her life.
“I can boldly confess that the Lord has been faithful to me. Things I had never thought, dreamt about, my mind hadn’t convinced are what I have witnessed the Lord do for me,” she said.
Her husband, Mr Wamumbi, extended warm birthday wishes.
“Happy birthday, my wife, to many more years of happiness and love.”
The couple’s traditional wedding on Saturday was a VVIP affair with President William Ruto, his deputy Rigathi Gachagua and a host of political leaders gracing the occasion.
Mr Wamumbi proposed to Ms Maina in April is a ceremony known in Gikuyu as ‘Kùhanda ithīgí‘, meaning the groom had officially engaged his bride to be.
The event is held to officially start the dowry negotiations between the bride’s and groom’s families.
“You have honoured my parents, family, relatives, friends and community by coming with my newly joined family, friends and relatives from Mathira for our introduction ceremony. Yes, you have formally enrolled me and I confirm that I belong to you,” Ms Maina said during that occasion.
The love story between the political couple is said to have blossomed during the campaign period leading to last year’s General Election.
