An Embu couple with hearing disability, Boniface Muchangi, 27, and Christine Wawira, 26 proved that they will not be dissuaded by their special needs. To them, it is only a hurdle, one that can be jumped over and that they did by exchanging nuptials.
After meeting three years ago during a church function and a year and a half of courtship via text messages, Muchangi decided to make things official, certify his commitment to Wawira and through that, inspire other deaf persons to believe in love.
At an inclusive wedding ceremony at the Good News Seventh Day Adventist Church in Majengo, the two got wedded on Sunday presided over by a pastor who also has hearing impairment.
A very unique, romantic and very inspirational ceremony it was which attracted a huge crowd who followed proceedings with the help of an interpreter as they exchanged vows using sign language.
A representative of the church, Festus Murithi, said they were thrilled when the couple decided to make their union official.
Boniface and Christine who are ardent members of the Deaf Mission Fellowship Church, thanked the church and well-wishers for support as they prepared for their wedding day through the interpreter.
Gerald Odhiambo a church elder, urged Kenyans to help people with disabilities pursue their dreams and love.
