Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu’s daughter Dr. Monica Njeri Ndung’u on Saturday walked down aisle with his longtime boyfriend Dr. Nyotu Gitau.
The two made official their union at the PCEA Evergreen church in Runda in an affair that was attended only by close friends of the two and their family members.
In their wedding invitation card, the two said that the wedding reception would be held at the Windsor Golf & Country Club.
This comes even as drama and controversy preceded the wedding as the National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) moved in with an order to close the Windsor Golf Hotel and Country club.
The union between Waititu’s daughter and Dr. Nyotu Gitau became the subject of discussion after it also emerged that the Kiambu Governor had shortlisted his soon-to-be son-in-law’s father Herman Gitau Nyotu for the Chairman position in the Kiambu County Public Service Board.
A list prepared at the Governor’s office earlier in the week included Mr Gitau’s name among the five candidates to be vetted by the county assembly with critics alleging that it was a scheme by Waititu to “reward his in-law”.
