This is why President Uhuru and his wife have decided to host their son’s in-laws in Gatundu

Jomo Kenyatta married Achola Ngobi in a traditional wedding ceremony shrouded in secrecy that even the DP didn’t attend. The President and his wife are now planning to host their in-laws and this time round the media got wind of their plan.


Photos of President Uhuru Kenyatta attending his son’s traditional wedding caught Kenyans by surprise making many wonder why the head of state didn’t want the country to know Jomo Kenyatta had become someone’s husband.

The Star reports that the head of state and his wife, Margaret Kenyatta, are now planning to host their son’s in-laws at their Gatundu home.

The reason behind the planned ceremony is simply to follow traditions; Kikuyu marriage traditions require President Uhuru to do so.

The invites-only ceremony will be held on Saturday November 12 2016 from 1pm; according to information on the invitation card.

"H.E Uhuru Kenyatta and H.E Margaret Kenyatta requests the pleasure of your company at the Itare ceremony of Jomo and Achola at Ichaweri Gatundu," the invite read.
