Kenyan lesbian couple Makena Njeri and Michelle Ntalami have set the internet abuzz after exchanging love messages on social media.
Through Instagram, Makena, a BBC journalist, said she no longer cares about what people say about her relationship with Ntalami who is the CEO of Marini Naturals.
“Thank you for your love, thank you for your courage, thank you for your truth, thank you for your friendship, and thank you for your pure soul Michelle Ntalami,” she wrote.
“The universe has taken so many years and months to decide what we are for each other but today I stand tall acknowledging that our love and friendship is enough to define us, nothing else matters.”
The journalist thanked Ntalami for their quarantine bonding moments last year, and the birthday treat, adding that she wants to spend the rest of her life with her.
“Our generation will read about our spirited hearts to support each other through the happiest days and the hardest days.”
“Thank you for our quarantine bonding moments, thank you for my best birthday ever thank you for your wisdom and most of all for reminding me every day that God is always by our side as long as we do right by humanity and Him! To another beautiful new year may we keep inspiring and being true,” she added.
Last month, photos of the two getting cozy on the beach in Diani, Kwale County went viral online.
“Here is a photo of two beautiful, happy humans. If you see anything else aside from this, then maybe you should really try to be a beautiful, happy human too,” Ntalami captioned one of the pictures.
The two have reportedly been dating for over a year and never shy away from showing affection to one another in public.
