Kisumu Governor Anyang Nyong'o's son Peter Junior and his longtime girlfriend Wanja Wohoro held their engagement ceremony last weekend.

Wanja, who's from an old-money family, and Junior Nyong'o have been dating for quite a while.

Their engagement party was held at a posh and an undisclosed location in the city.

 
 
 

The invite-only party was attended by less than 30 guests, all family and close friends.

They included Wanja's family, the governor's daughter Zawadi Nyong'o, Patricia Kihoro, artiste Karun, runway model trainer Letoya Johnstone, Blinky Bill, Karen Lucas.

Junior wore a white T-shirt, a safari hat and sayari pants, while Wanja wore an African print romper. 

While addressing guests, Junior, who also refers to himself as flower boy, said, "In the first year, I was just looking at rings and different stuff. Got her a ring from a jewellery shop that made the rings for 'Lord of the Rings'."

A source told Word Is, "They are planning for a wedding and it will be a surprise."

Photos from their engagement were shared on social media, with guests congratulating them.
