Speaking at the reception during the couple’s wedding, the DP narrated that he was both anxious and excited to give away his daughter for marriage.
He, however, indicated that it was much more difficult to give away her daughter to Nigerians and especially an Igbo, a group of people that live in Southeastern Nigeria.
He went on to narrate a story he had told Ezenegu of a controversial businessman Anthony Chinedu who made headlines in 2013 when he was deported from Kenya for being in the country illegally.
“When I first met Alex I told him a story of a guy called Chinedu who gave us a lot of trouble and I was told that man was an Igbo…
â€œThis Chinedu fellow gave us so much trouble that we deported him to Nigeria and when we deported him he refused to get out of the aeroplane in Lagos for two days. Even after leaving him there we found him in Kenya,” he stated.
The DP also advised his daughter to be submissive to the husband.
The wedding ceremony took place at Ruto’s private residence along Koitobos Road in Karen, Nairobi.
The theme of the wedding was white and a dash of pink.
Some of the guests who attended the ceremony include; ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi, Elgeyo Marakwet Kipchumba Murkomen, Kericho Senator Aaron Cheruiyot, Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi, Soy MP Caleb Kositany, and Nandi governor Stephen Sang.
On his part, President Uhuru Kenyatta congratulated his deputy and assured that he would visit the newly weds after his trip to Kisumu.
“Pongezi tena (Congratulations), you will tell them. Nitawaona maybe tukitoka huko Kisumu (I will see them after my trip to Kisumu),” he said.
