Abogeta West Member of County Assembly (MCA) Dennis Kiogora recently made headlines as he whisked his girlfriend away to India for a unique Christmas celebration.
In a move that surprised many, the MCA chose the iconic Taj Mahal as the backdrop for his marriage proposal, creating a romantic and historically rich setting.
India, though not a typical vacation destination for many Kenyans, held special significance for Kiogora.
He explained that the Taj Mahal, built 400 years ago by Shah Jahan in memory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal, symbolizes eternal love.
The decision to propose at such a storied location adds a timeless and cultural touch to the couple’s engagement.
Kiogora shared the joyous news on social media, expressing his elation at receiving a positive response to his proposal.
The images posted showed the couple basking in the beauty of the Taj Mahal, with smiles and joy evident on their faces.
The MCA defended the choice of India as a vacation spot, emphasizing their preference for exploring less popular destinations.
This romantic gesture echoes a growing trend among public figures, including politicians, who choose to share personal milestones with the public. By opening up about their relationships, these individuals humanize themselves, offering a glimpse into their personal lives.
Kiogora’s story also brings to mind other politicians who have gone public with their relationships.
For instance, Mathira MP Eric Wa Mumbi proposed to Murang’a Woman Representative Betty Maina earlier in the year, showcasing that love knows no professional boundaries.
