President Kenyatta’s Son Jomo Holds Traditional Wedding

President Uhuru Kenyatta’s eldest son, Jomo, married his longtime girlfriend in a traditional Kikuyu ceremony held on Saturday afternoon. Though not much was heard from the event that was highly private, Kenyans.co.ke was able to obtain a few photos of the event culturally referred to as Ngurario.

In the photos, 27-year old Jomo Kenyatta and his girlfriend, whom he engaged in June this year, are seen in traditional regalia. The first son’s fiancee was donned in a green and blue dress while Jomo was in a traditional Kikuyu shirt.

The president was also captured in the rare photos of the low-key event held at an undisclosed location.

The couple has never shied away from expressing public affection and has on several occasions been spotted holding each other’s hands during national celebrations.

Sources indicate that the two love birds will have their white wedding early next year.

Jomo turned 27 on April 8, this year and interestingly he shares a birthday with his mother First Lady Margaret Kenyatta.

Here is a tweet we obtained of Mrs Kenyatta wishing her son a happy birthday in 2014.

“I wish my son Jomo Jnr. A happy Birthday, as he turns 25. Interestingly we share a birthday.Happy Birthday son, I love and pray for you”

The President’s eldest son attended the prestigious Hilton College and Michael house in KwaZulu Natal Midlands, South Africa.

    I object to the term “white” wedding. Perhaps Christian or Catholic Church wedding would be more appropriate. Christian or Catholic weddings should not be called “white” weddings, since they are faith-based, not race based. And using racially-loaded term is not nice. There are Christians and Catholics in every area of the world so I think they might object to that term. Please! Besides, the couple is married now if they had a traditional Gikuyu wedding. But I do suppose they might be married also in the church perhaps if that is per their faith and wishes. If not, then why would they need another ceremony–if not to be married in the church?

    I do extend my best wishes and prayers to the Happy Couple on the establishing of their household. Jomo na ? Does the new wife have a name by the way? The story above doesn’t mention her given name. Or has she been totally subsumed as only the newly married Mrs. Kenyatta. Even the First Lady’s given name is used in media reports, so perhaps you could give us a little more spotlight on her name (the face behind the million-caret diamond) as well, now that she is part of the first family. Sante Sana Sana!
