Grace Neema Wanjiku Maina, the second-born daughter of Nganga founder of Neno Evangelism, is poised to step into a new chapter of her life as she ties the knot with Shem Mugo on December 23, 2023.
Born to Pastor James Ng’ang’a and his late wife, Esther, Wanjiku holds the position of the second child among the four siblings in the family.
The forthcoming wedding ceremony is scheduled to unfold at the Neno Evangelism Centre, commencing at 10:00 am, as stated in the invitation circulating via Nairobi News.
The invitation, carrying the blessings of both families, invites guests to witness and partake in the celebration of love between Wanjiku and Shem.
What sets this wedding apart is the explicit mention in the invitation that the couple prefers monetary gifts over other forms of presents.
The invitation, signed by the families of Apostle Dr James Maina Nganga and Dr Gabriel Mugo Muruatetu, underlines this preference, setting a clear expectation for those attending the ceremony.
Wanjiku, a legal professional by trade, completed her studies at Daystar University and is on the verge of joining the Kenya School of Law. Her soon-to-be spouse, Shem, works as an accountant based in Nairobi.
In an exclusive conversation with Nairobi News, Pastor Ng’ang’a shed light on his daughter’s preference for monetary gifts, citing concerns about the varied nature of gifts received during weddings.
He expressed a desire to avoid what he referred to as “uchawi gifts,” suggesting that not all gifts are well-intentioned.
“Not all people wish you well during your wedding; some people bring funny gifts like tissue papers and sanitary towels. My daughter requested people who want to gift her to do it in terms of money,” Ngang’a explained.
