From Sonko's daughter to another Governor's daughter.
Mwangi wa Iria Governor of Murang’a county is slated to be Benson’s new father-in-law as the young man has already booked his bride one Rachel Wanja.
This was in a ceremony in June called Kuhanda Ithĩgĩ (planting the branch of a tree) which comes ahead of the dowry ceremony called Rũracio and after Kumenya Mucĩĩ (where the groom-to-be visits the bride’s home to introduce himself.)
A few months after the ceremony, Benson revealed that he had also adopted Rachel’s daughter in a post that read: “Apparently the best things don't come with a menu and a price tag. But they would fetch crazy amounts on auction. My artefacts.”
This was after sharing a pic of his new family.
Benson's engagement seemingly gives weight to Saumu's accusations that he jumped from one politician’s daughter to another, a claim she made in a fit of rage.
“I'm tired of waking up every morning getting different stories about me on this cheap blogs. Just to clear the air I was never married in the first place. I’m just a woman who realized my worth before it was too late .yes we broke up .I’m just too young to go through such bullsh*t of a man moving from one politician's daughter to another for his selfish benefits. I wonder what all of you get by writing all this nonsense. Next time I see bs about me I will definitely take it to court. If there is anything that needs to be clarified call my number. ” She raged.
