On Saturday gospel singer Kambua Manundu said, “I do” to pastor and businessman Jackson Mathu at a garden wedding at the Windsor Golf Hotel and Country Club. The couple exchanged their vows at a garden wedding overlooking the artificial lake at the golf course. The reception was at the Ridgeways Garden where family and friends gathered for the afternoon programme. The colour theme of the wedding was accentuated by various shades of brown that matched the wedding invites. The cake was decorated with light red roses.

Kambua and Jackson were welcomed into the reception tent where they danced to traditional Kenyan tunes by Kayamba Africa. “I’m so excited and thank you for celebrating with us,” Kambua told the guests after the MC prompted her to say how she feels. While Jackson added: “I’m feeling married already” Afternoon performances included Esther Wahome, Mercy Masika and coast act Marsha Mapenzi.

Esther who performed her hit Kuna Dawa advised Kambua, that “I know it is possible” to stay married and be happy. She said, “I’m have been happily married for 16 years and I have 3 children. I want you Kambua to know that it is possible.” Some of the guests included top gospel acts like Alice Kamande, Nancy Kihenia, SK Blue, model and dentist Amrit Kalsi and comedian Churchill among others.
