Former Nairobi woman representative Racheal Shebesh and her husband Frank Ambundo held a Gurario (traditional wedding ceremony) last month.

Gurario is an event to mark the completion of marriage rites as per the Kikuyu culture.

The wedding was aired on Citizen TV's Wedding Show programme yesterday and her husband Frank narrated how they met.

"She was in Form one at Statehouse Girls while I was at the University of Nairobi (UoN). We used to meet on the road every day after classes. She was attractive, tall and slim. I would bully her on the way and tell her how beautiful she was," he recounted.

He added that Shebesh would go to UON to watch him play.

"After I finished playing, I see this beautiful girl who has blossomed, we were excited to see each other and we started talking. From there it became wimpy dates, some cream, those were the places to go. I used to buy her wimpy chips on Kenyatta Avenue and the rest is history," he said.

The two had a church wedding in 1997 and somewhere along the line he reverted to Islam.

"I thought it was the end of it but I came to learn the hard this ceremony (traditional wedding) must be done," he said.

Frank said they have faced a lot of challenges but their love has made their marriage remain intact.

"We have been through ups and down but nothing beats our love. Nobody will ever put us down. We are together."

The 50 year-old Shebesh said she felt like she was in love again.

"I'm excited. I feel like I'm in love again for the first time. I feel young and beautiful."
