    The event will be held in the Karen vicinity from 11:30 a.m. with an adult reception to follow at the same venue.

    The ceremony comes hot on the heels of a dowry ceremony earlier in May 2021 that saw the deputy president play host to his Nigerian in-laws.

    The glamourous engagement part saw the merging of two cultures, the Kalenjin community and their counterparts from Nigeria – the Igbos. 

    It would appear that DP Ruto’s tease to his daughter to get married in November 2020, will be coming to pass. 

    Ruto was speaking during the traditional marriage ceremony between Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika and businessman Sam Mburu in Laikipia County when he urged June to settle down to raise a family. 

    Months later, he was leading the dowry negotiation for his daughter according to traditions.

    On his part, Dr Ezenagu is an assistant professor in the College of Law at Hamad Bin Khalifa University (HBKU), Qatar.

    The Nigerian national has an impressive professional portfolio having pursued law with an incline to international trade and taxes.
