Two months after their ‘ruracio’ ceremony in Mululu, Vihiga, Prime CS Musalia Mudavadi’s daughter, Maryanne Mudavadi, and her husband Nyaga Karanja married in a colourful wedding on Saturday.

The couple exchanged vows at St Austins Catholic Church, surrounded by friends and family, and, predictably, the top drawer of Kenya’s political scene.

The dress code was to the nines, with the groom in a black and white tuxedo, complete with silk lapels to boot, while the bride stood out in a lace-sleeved, mermaid-inspired wedding gown.

The guests stuck to “comfortable weekend-wear,” while the bridesmaid and groomsmen donned floor-length off-the-shoulder gowns in salmon and black tuxedos, respectively.

“Today, I joined my brother, Musalia Mudavadi  to celebrate the wedding of their children; Maryane Musalia, the daughter of Prime Cabinet Secretary Hon Musalia W Mudavadi, and her longtime lover,Nyaga Karanja, at St. Austin Catholic Church, Msongari,” National Assembly Speaker and a long-time friend of the Mudavadi’s wrote on X.

“Love is the beautiful friendship that has ignited into a passionate flame, and I wish for your love to remain resilient and vibrant,filled with endless laughter and joy.”

Wetangula also shared a few photos from the lovely ceremony, including one in which CS Mudavadi and his wife Tessie walked their daughter down the aisle, beaming from ear to ear; Mudavadi in a two-piece navy blue suit, and his wife in a flowing Arabian style gown with a matching headwrap.

Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru, Defence Cabinet Secretary Aden Duale, Public Service Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria, Roads Cabinet Secretary Kipchumba Murkomen, and Majority Leader Kimani Ichungwa were among those in attendance.

“Earlier today, I joined the family and friends of Prime Cabinet Secretary, H.E  Hon Musalia W Mudavadi  during the wedding of his daughter Marryanne Mudavadi at  St. Austin’s Catholic Church in Nairobi,” CS Kuria captioned a pretty bunch of photos from the ceremony in a post on X.

The guests had nothing but rosy words for the newlyweds, with Cooperatives Cabinet Secretary Simon Chelugui quoting the book of Genesis extensively on his photo caption.

“Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man,” wrote Chelugui.

“The man said: This is now the bone of my bones and the flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman,’ for she was taken out of man,”

“That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh. ~Genesis 2: 22-24.”
