Nakuru Senator Susan Wakarura Kihika has finally wedded her long-time boyfriend Sam Mburu.
The two lovebirds tied the knot in a colorful traditional wedding ceremony held in Nyahururu, Laikipia County on Saturday.
The ceremony was attended by Senator Kihika’s political friends including Deputy President William Ruto.
Others were DP Ruto’s personal assistant Farouk Kibet, MPs Kimani Ngunjri (Bahati) Oscar Sudi (Kapseret), Aisha Jumwa (Malindi), Moses Kuria (Gatundu South), and Rahab Mukami (Nyeru Woman Representative).
Mburu, a businessman based in Nakuru, is also a close ally of DP Ruto and is said to have met Kihika during campaigns for the 2013 general elections.
Kihika, 46, had just returned to Kenya from the US, where she had lived for 20 years. She worked as an attorney in the US.
Kihika is a mother of two, Tiffany, 22, and Ashley, 20. Mburu, who was previously married to Beatrice Wanjiku, is reported to be 10 years younger than Senator Kihika.
Susan is the daughter of the late veteran politician Dickson Kihika Kimani and has declared she will run for the Nakuru gubernatorial seat in 2022.
