A Kenyan woman in Seattle, Washington, who has been at the center of a heated online debate has come out to openly declare her total support for her fiancé, who is being accused of scamming Kenyans by holding three Pre-wedding fundraisers within a few months: two in Maryland and Massachusetts and an upcoming one in Washington State.
In an exclusive interview with Kenya Satellite News Network Thursday, Pastor Serah Ndirangu said she is ready to get married to the man and “those casting doubts on the event are mere detractors whose opinions don’t really matter.”
She said she is well aware of what happened between the previous fiancée and the Reverend and added that the upcoming pre-wedding was her own idea.
“Why do people like poking their noses in other peoples’ affairs?” she wondered.
“We really don’t care what they are saying…this is our life and no one is being forced to contribute a penny,” she said.
Our pre-wedding will take place on November 10th “come rain, come shine,” she added.
She was referring to those who have raised concern over the number of times the man in question has “fallen in love.”
The debate is about one Reverend Stanley Mwea who held two pre-wedding fundraisers in May this year, in Baltimore and Boston. The woman he intended to marry was Susan Kangethe, but as fate would have it, differences arose before they could tie the knot and the wedding was called off.
Soon after that, Rev Mwea then fell in love with another woman, Ms Serah Ndirangu, and the two planned a third pre-wedding, slated for November 10th this year.
This did not go down very well with some Kenyans in the Diaspora, many of who took to social media to make position on the matter known. This comes at a time when Kenyans in different cities in the US have been complaining of rising instances where, after pre-weddings are held, the “love birds” vanish or relocate to different states, never to be seen again.
Now Pastor Serah Ndirangu said the wedding will take place in Seattle, Washington in early December. “The church elders and my fellow gospel musicians have encouraged me to go on with the arrangements and there is no looking back. God will fight on our behalf,” she added.
However, many people, mostly Kenyans, were skeptical:
