It has emerged that president Uhuru Keyatta was absent with an apology at June Ruto’s wedding.
After the prayer breakfast event held at Parliament buildings, the head of state conveyed his congratulatory message to June through her father.
The president told Ruto to congratulate the newlyweds on his behalf, promising to visit them after his tour to Kisumu.
Speaking when he was about to reach the parliament buildings on Thursday for the prayer breakfast, Uhuru said he will make the visit after Madaraka day.
“Pongezi tena saana… you will tell them…nitawaona nikitoka Kisumu,” Uhuru told Ruto.
The event was filled with pomp and colour as several VIPs were seen getting loose, dancing to Kalenjin traditional songs and famous Nigerian hits.
Dressed in a white gown and peach shoes, June Ruto was walked down the aisle by her parents on Thursday afternoon.
Peach and gold colours dominated the event, with the bride’s mother dressing in a peach dress with a touch of gold.
It was a joyful day for Ruto and his family as he officially handed over the hand of his daughter – June – to her Nigerian husband Alexander Ezenagu.
The invite only wedding ceremony was held at Ruto’s private residence in Karen, which saw only close friends and family witness the two exchange their vows, with an adult reception following later at the same venue.
