A Kitui man, Bernard Musyoki, who is happily married to his mzungu wife who is twice his age, has revealed that he paid Ksh100 as the 70-year-old's bride price.

In an interview with a local publication, the 35-year-old man reiterated that his love is genuine and not fake, as many might think.

Musyoki further revealed that he met 70-year-old Deborah on Facebook in 2017.

“I sent her a friend request, after a week, I asked her to marry me and she accepted. We even exchanged vows inbox," he said.

He revealed that in 2018, he was to travel to the US to meet her, but was denied a visa.

They kept communicating, and on December 29, 2020, the woman decided to travel to Kenya to meet her prince charming.

Musyoki revealed that Deborah’s parents passed on years ago and he had to negotiate for dowry payment with her and her children.

“They said they wanted only Ksh100 and told me to take it to church as an offering and she said that’s my dowry,” he recalled.

He further revealed that Deborah’s children are also older than him but they relate well. He said when their mother told them she had found love again, they accepted him and supported their relationship.
