 Abuthuguchi West MCA Patrick Muthuri also attended the mass wedding in the Church located about 5km from Meru town.

AIPCA St. Francisco Kianjuri Church Arch Deacon Moses Kimathi who presided over the weddings said they organised for the mass ceremony to appreciate their membership when they are alive instead of buying them coffins when they are lifeless.

He said the decision was to cut costs associated with big weddings to an individual as many youths wanted to exchange vows in Church but money is a problem.
