June Ruto, Deputy President William Ruto’s firstborn daughter, on Thursday, May 27 exchanged wedding vows with his Nigerian fiancé, Dr Alexander Ezenagu.
In an invite-only elite ceremony conducted in Karen, Nairobi, June said “I do” to the Nigerian, in the presence of close family members, friends and several high profile politicians allied to his father.
The beautiful bride was dressed in a white strapless gown. June’s husband-to-be had donned a double-breasted fitting navy-blue suit.
The wedding comes barely three weeks after June and Ezenagu got engaged. The ceremony (commonly known as Koito in the Kalenjin culture) saw DP Ruto and his wife Rachel host their Nigerian in-laws at the Karen residence.
