In what aptly fits into a fairy tale wedding, a 95-year-old great-grandfather has fulfilled a pledge he made to his 70-year-old wife 40 years ago to give her a grand wedding and dream honeymoon.
The man, Pa Henry Kariuki, who seemed to remember details of his first meeting with his wife, Alice Wanjiku, tied the long awaited knot with her at the ACK Passenga Church in Nyandarua County, Kenya.
Turning to his wife of 40 years at the church entrance, he said “Alice, remember that first day we met? I promised you a colourful church wedding and honeymoon at a place of your choice. That is where I’m taking you today”.
Limping due to advanced age, Pa Kariuki gave himself a pat on the back for not only fulfilling his wife’s much cherished dream after 40 years, but also legalizing their union in compliance with the laws of that country.
The Juicy Blog reports that the couple have 17 children.
