Kenya: An Isukuti Wedding for Wilson Malaba

Entrepreneur Wilson Malaba jumped the broom on Saturday. Wilson said his 'I do's' to fiancé Muthoni Njoroge at Loresho PCEA Community church followed by a fancy reception at Lions Eye Hospital hall at Loresho.

The black and grey themed ceremony was witnessed by the couple's family and friends. The invite-only function saw a guest list of about 500 guests who included the who is who in Nairobi.

The highlight was the isukuti players who welcomed the couple into the reception hall with their blend of luhya traditional songs like Mwanamberi and Mulongo. Gospel artiste Mbuvi, who was also one of the groomsmen took over from the isikuti players to lead the bridal posse in a dance around the hall.

Some of the celebrities invited were Big Ted, Tattu's Debbie Asila and Angela Mwandanda, Fundi Frank, Ainea Ojiambo, outgoing Kikuyu MP Lewis Nguyai and Chief of Defense Forces Gen Julius Karangi.

Honourable Nduati Kariuki who spoke on behalf of the bride's family said that the newlyweds should enjoy their marriage.

Paul Muite's running mate Shem Ochuodho gave a word of advice to the new couple and also took the chance to ask the guests to vote for Safina. Wilson was in the past linked to controversial Esther Arunga who is now married to Quincy Timberlake.
