Sakaja gives man who was jilted by fiancée royal treatment on his wedding day – PHOTOS

Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja kept his promise he made to a groom, who had been jilted by his previous fiancée, not only attend his wedding but also chauffeur him on the big day.

The groom, William Mwaura, first captured public attention last month after a video of his intriguing encounter with the Senator during a church service in Nairobi went viral.

A heartbroken Mwaura had just been jilted by his lover after she discovered that he was broke. Thankfully, he had soon found new love in Marion Kinya.

On that occasion, a teary Mwaura was pleasantly surprised by Sakaja’s gracious gesture of gifting him Sh50,000 in cash to help him and his new fiancée plan for their wedding.

Sakaja had further promised him that he would attend his wedding in person as the couple’s designated chauffeur.

True to his promise, on Saturday Sakaja showed up to give Mwaura and his bride a royal treatment on the biggest day of their lives.

The senator chauffeured the bride in his luxurious Toyota Lexus LX570 to Jesus Winners Ministry Church in Roysambu, where the wedding vows were exchanged.

Other than the senator’s top of the range car, the bride’s convoy also included two chase cars.

Earlier, Sakaja had joined Marion’s family at her home, singing and dancing as she was getting ready to go to the church.

“Honored to have been part of today’s wonderful wedding between William and Kinya. Their story of love touched us as William had been rejected by his previous fiancée for being poor. Kinya decided to look beyond his present circumstance and committed to him. They are blessed,” Sakaja later tweeted.

Mwaura’s family and friends could not contain their joy as Sakaja joined them for the wedding ceremony.
