A 35-year-old Kenyan man who married a white woman twice his age has revealed that he footed the bill for her bride price.
Bernard Musyoki, who married Deborah, 70, insisted on his love in an interview with a local publication and also revealed that he paid Ksh100 as her bride price.
Musyoki stated that they met on Facebook in 2017 and that he was supposed to travel to the United States to meet her in 2018, but that he was denied a visa.
I sent her a friend request, after a week, I asked her to marry me and she accepted. We even exchanged vows inbox.”
They kept in touch, and the woman decided to travel to Kenya to meet her prince charming on December 29, 2020.
Musyoki revealed that Deborah’s parents died years ago, forcing him to negotiate dowry payments 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.”
Musyoki also revealed that Deborah’s children are older than him, but they get along well. He claims that when their mother informed them that she had found love again, they accepted him and supported their relationship.
