In Summary

  • President Uhuru Kenyatta’s son, Jomo Kenyatta, married his long-time sweetheart Fiona Achola Ngobi in a lavish all-white ceremony held at State House on Sunday evening.
  • The invite-only wedding was kept out of media attention and guests are reported to have been barred from accessing the venue with any recording cameras or phones.
  • Achola and Kenyatta welcomed their first child, baby Wanjiru, in November 2017.

With all the pomp and lavishness befitting a man from the first family, president Uhuru Kenyatta’s first son, Jomo Kenyatta, married his long-time sweetheart Fiona Achola Ngobi in an elegant all-white ceremony held at State House on Sunday evening.

The invite-only wedding was kept out of media and public attention and guests are reported to have been barred from accessing the venue with any recording cameras or phones. Probably explains why nothing from the event is yet to leak on social media.

Achola is niece to Defence CS Raychelle Omamo and granddaughter to the late William Odongo Omamo; former minister for Agriculture, Minister for Environment and Natural Resources and a former Member of Parliament for the Bondo Constituency and Muhoroni Constituency.

Achola and Kenyatta welcomed their first child, baby Wanjiru, in November 2017.

The wedding attracted top personalities within Kenya’s political and social scene, and was complete with fireworks at night.

The two held their traditional dowry and wedding ceremony in 2016 in Ichaweri, Gatundu. The baby was named Wanjiru after Kenyatta’s mother, First Lady Margaret.

We wish the couple all the best in their marriage.
