Celebrated Kenyan Comedian Timothy Kimani aka Njugush has disclosed why he didn’t not propose to his wife Celestine Ndinda aka Wakavinye.
According to to Njugush, during their dating period, he was so broke to a point he could not afford a presentable ring for a proposal.
He added that, as love birds they were already living together and wedding plans were underway, a thing that even suppressed his desires to propose. He said what mattered most at that particular time was his commitment to his wife.
How did you propose to Celestine? Asked Betty Kyallo.
Wakavinye interjected saying “Aliniuliza Tunaweza kuwa na harusi December ama August? Hiyo ndo ilikuwa proposal”
Njuguhs opted to explain his scenario saying that “Unajua nilimuuliza between December na August wewe unaona tufanye Harusi lini, juu nilikuwa nataka kupunguze watu. You know why I was asking that, ni umekaa na huyu mtu mumeshaaongea hata viti mnataka kwa harusi, Gari, wedding gown, mpaka suti sasa kwani hajui anaolewa?. But obviously for me proposal ningeenda out of my way, sasa imanagine nimuwekee pete kwa cake akule alafu. So what I thought was, one she already know tunaowana, juu tulikaa tukasema penye imefika tuambia wazazi, tumeenda kwako, nini nini so hata ile time ningeprose ilinipita. So unajua ni when I was on TV , I was broke yes I’m famous but pesa hakuna, so nilikuwa naogopa kupropose juu hataki hizi pete za River road, juu anataka hizi za 40k, sasa 60K. so for me proposal ilipita ivo. The most impottant thing was my commitment to her, I told her nataka tukae mpaka mwisho. Enyewe hiyo time hatukuwa na pesa, coz nilikuwa nimequit job.”
On the day of their Ruracio, Njugush was involved in a accident after he rammed into a lorry from behind along Thika Road, Kasarani area.
