A 94-year-old Nyeri man has clutched on the hand of his 91-year-old wife as they staggered down the aisle to renew their 63-year-old marital vows in a colourful church wedding.
Aging Jackson Muruiki and Agnes Njeri exchanged their vows on Saturday, December 23, at the PCEA Gachika Church in Kiganjo, Nyeri county in a ceremony that attracted hundreds of curious area residents.
The old pair reportedly have 13 children but that did not stop them from realising their dream of having a church wedding.
According to NTV, Muruiki and his lover Njeri had been looking forward to a church wedding even after their many years in marriage. It meant a lot to the God-fearing couple, especially Njeri.
To their children, relatives, friends and church leaders, the wedding was the best example to the younger generations and those who stay together as husband and wife without making their marriage official.
Not only have they been married for 63 years but reports have it that the couple have never been heard or spotted quarreling.
"We have never seen them quarrel. They have been very faithful to one another all these years," one of their daughters said.
The old couple now look forward to spending more years together after they renewed their nearly a century old love.
