The exclusive wedding between Fiona Achola Ngobi and President Uhuru Kenyatta’s eldest son Jomo Kenyatta last Sunday was Kenyan version of a royal wedding.
This is after the nuptials between the two brought together two prominent families at an invite only wedding at State House, Nairobi.
Achola, the niece to Defence Cabinet Secretary Raychelle Omamo, wedded Jomo at an exclusive event graced by family, friends and Kenya’s elite in business and politics.
For security purposes and to accord them privacy, no photos were allowed at the event. Those who made it to the invitation list were ordered not to carry any type of cameras and guests were barred from taking any pictures.
Photos from the tightly sealed event have not leaked out yet but it has not stopped people from speaking about it. The wedding could easily have been the event of the year.
After holding their traditional wedding at Uhuru’s rural home in Ichaweri, Gatundu South Constituency, last year, it was only natural that they would hold the wedding.
The couple welcomed their first child baby Wanjiru, named after the first lady Margaret Kenyatta. Baby Wanjiru arrived last year at the Aga Khan hospital where Achola delivered.
