Despite the upcoming nuptials, Akothee insists that she will still hold the title of 'President of Single Mothers'.

In a statement to the press, she said, "My title does not necessarily mean I am still a single mother, it basically means a woman who has successfully raised all of her children without the privilege of a partner."

During the visitors' trip, they headed to one of Kisumu's most popular tourist attractions, the 'Kit-Mikayi' or 'stone of the first wife', followed by a trip to Dunga beach to enjoy some fresh tilapia and ugali.

In addition to her successful Akothee Safaris Tours and Travel company, which she has run for over 13 years, Akothee has now partnered with Omosh to expand their travel venture by bringing in his Switzerland-based company, MySafari.
