Ms Nayianoi is the daughter of Mr Livingstone ole Ntutu, the step brother of former Narok Senator Stephen ole Ntutu and Chief Administrative Secretary in the Interior Ministry Patrick ole Ntutu.

All leaders present had kind words to offer to the newly weds.

“I am happy you can now settle down as a family man. The problems we have with you in the past is now water under the bridge. You are now an elder. Welcome to the married club.” Ruto said while congratulating the 45-year old MP.

Mr Odinga said as a long term friend of the Kanu MP, he had repeatedly brought to his attention the fact that he was getting old and should find himself a wife.

“He looked for me and insisted I must attend his wedding as he had finally found the love of his life. I am happy for him,” Mr Odinga said.
