Power couple Bishop Allan Kiuna and Rev Kathy Kiuna of the Jubilee Christian Church are celebrating 26 years of marriage.

Speaking during a TV interview, they said patience and being selfless for each other have kept them intact.

Kathy and Allan met in the ’90s, when he was serving in the Faith Evangelistic Ministry and Kathy was a singer at the ministry.

 
 

"It's not rosy but for us, the good has superseded the marriage because we are friends," Allan said.

"We focus on the positives but also it's been hard work and a lot of patience."

They have both had to endure each other by being selfless.

"It's important to marry someone you like and not just love. She is a real friend and patient with me," he said. 

Kathy said a lot of marriage breakups are caused by selfishness.

"My advice to couples is 'be quick to forgive'," she said. 

In an earlier interview, Allan said he knew Kathy would be his wife the first day they met.

 
 
 

“I saw Kathy, and suddenly, something was stirred up inside me,” he said. “Immediately I saw her, there and then, I knew this was my life partner.

"I knew she was the right woman for me and the fact that we became very good friends made it easy for me. Moreover, when my spiritual authority Rev Teresia Wairimu saw her, she approved of her.”

The rains stopped for this moment. They had greeted us when we arrived for an open-top bus tour and punctuated our visit now and then. But when it was time for George and Aggie to take centre stage, the notorious British skies took a rain check. And we watched in awe as 'Gaggie' swapped personal pledges over and above the traditional church vows.
