How city men are responding to my hunt for husband, woman speaks out

A 28 year-old woman shocked city residents beginning this week as she strutted in the city centre holding a placard that declared her search for a husband.

Priscilla Nyambura, a class one dropout, wore a white ‘wedding gown’ complete with a bridal veil as she literally searched for her Mr Perfect. On the placard, she announced her name, age, telephone contact and her single-mother status.

She walked through the CBD street holding the placard aloft on one hand, and on the other, tagging along her seven year-old daughter.

It was a simple, well worked out strategy that had never been used before in the city’s dating scene.


And the feedback she has been receiving for her daring act has been encouraging. She has so far received several marriage proposals (she couldn’t reveal the number) from city men who are keen to have her as a life partner.

But she is yet to make up her mind from the options available.

Speaking to KTN, Ms Nyambura gave a description of the kind of man that she wants.

“I’m looking for a husband who is employed and one who will understand me and take me as I am,” said Ms Nyambura.

She added that she want a man who is hard working and will take care of her and her child.

Other conditions include a man who is not a party animal and  who does not drink. The man should also be willing to take her child to school and help her with her homework.

Here is a video of the interview.
