A Nairobi bachelor has won accolades after he temporarily brought traffic to a standstill on Mombasa Road in order to propose to his girlfriend.

The love stricken man, whose identity is yet to be known, was pictured going down on both knees to propose to his girlfriend as friends and bystanders watched in amusement.

For his courage and planning, he was rewarded with a loud yes by his girlfriend who fell short of bursting in tears.

The couple then tossed to the occasion with a glass of wine.

Nairobi bachelors have lately been pulling all stops to make grand romantic gestures to the love of their lives.

On Valentine’s Day, Mwasigwe Mwendwa chose the rooftop of KICC as the location for popping the big question to his girlfriend Elizabeth Mwangi.
