By now, you all know that the President’s oldest son, Jomo Kenyatta is reported to have tied the knot with his fiancee.
The question on everyone’s mind is, who is this mysterious damsel who has stolen the heart of President Uhuru Kenyatta’s son?
Worry no more. We have all the info about who the blushing bride to be is. The couple who have been dating for a while now, decided to unite in a bond of marriage. They did this in a traditional ceremony held over the weekend witnessed by President Kenyatta.
The very exclusive affair was hush hush, even the location was kept secret.
When the news of the traditional wedding hit the internet, it spread like wild fire. But the thing is, the two have been dating for a while now. Jomo and his bae, have been spotted together at several public events.
They attended last year’s Jamuhuri Day celebration together and were seen together again, when US President Barack Obama visited Kenya.
The traditional wedding follows an engagement that took place in June, 2016. Reports claim that Jomo and his wife will have the white wedding early next year.

Kenyans online are super excited about the impending wedding. It is not clear if it will be open to the adoring public. After all it will be our very own version of a royal wedding. Kenyans cannot get enough of this couple.
Jomo’s wife comes from a strong bloodline of politicians and old money. Just like Jomo who is named after the first Kenyan President, his wifey also has a very famous grandfather who was instrumental in the fighting for Kenya’s independence.
Ladies and gentlemen, meet Achola Fiona Ngobi.
Her heritage is very exotic. She has both Kenyan and Ugandan bloodlines. Achola’s mother, Ruth Theddesia Ngobi is sister to Raychelle Omamo the Cabinet Secretary for Defence.
Achola’s maternal grandfather, William Odongo Omamo was a Kenyan politician. He was a minister for Agriculture, Minister for Environment and Natural Resources and a former member of parliament for the Bondo Constituency and Muhoroni Constituency. Omamo had two wives, Joyce Acholla and Anne Audia, and 16 children.
Her grandfather is remembered by many as the man with the elephantine sense of humour. Omamo died from a long standing illness at the age of 82 in April 2010.
His funeral was attended by family and friends, which included Raila Odinga, and Kalonzo Musyoka, and then President Mwai Kibaki. He was buried at his estate in Utonga Bay at Nyambarimba house, just outside Bondo.
Achola’s father hails from Uganda’s Ngobi heritage that also has a strong leadership bloodline.
