According to the Kikuyu culture, the parents cannot receive dowry payments for their daughter if they had not taken part in the ‘ngurario’ ceremony, which serves as the final part of the Kikuyu wedding.
On the other hand, Kiharu Member of Parliament Ndindi Nyoro finally seemed to have heeded to President Uhuru Kenyatta’s advice in 2018 when he attended Murang’a Senator Irungu Kanga’ta’s wedding.
“We are all here to witness our senator getting married. I thank him for deciding to settle down in marriage. This demonstrates a good example worthy to be emulated by other young leaders,” Uhuru maintained.
The President insisted that no significant development could be realized in the country in the absence of strong families.
On Saturday, Nyoro officially left the singles club when he presented dowry for his fiancé, Sophie in a colourful ceremony.
The dowry ceremony was attended by a number of dignitaries including Murang’a Woman Rep Sabina Wanjiru Chege and Gatundu South lawmaker Moses Kuria.
