In a long Facebook post, a former Minister for Aviation in Nigeria Osita Chidoka announced that he was among the negotiators at the bride-price settlement ceremony.

The Kalenjin people of Kenya are pastoral people and have so much in common with the Igbos of Nigeria. I was the negotiator at the bride price settlement ceremony. We haggled, we negotiated and at the end, we agreed on how many cows would be a fair price for the hands of June. June’s father kept the event small and simple and family-focused. His position as Deputy President was relegated as he played the role of a father. Hon. Ruto and his wife were great hosts. I regaled them with Igbo customs, proverbs, and more. They are looking forward to visiting Ani Igbo to eat roasted yam and red oil. They also want to see Umuaro and Umuofia as described by Chinua Achebe. Well, I told them that visiting Obosi and Alex’s village Uli will suffice…. ” Chidoka wrote.
