President Kenyatta cancels dowry payment plans at last minute

Reports said the President planned to pay dowry for his great grandmother from Narok after 300 years, to correct the wrongs of his great grandfather.

He cancelled the event that was to take place in December after Mama Ngina confirmed that she would be out of the country until February 2019.

According to a local daily, the President is supposed to pay the dowry because he was named after his great grandfather Muigai.
