Murang’a Senator Irungu Kang’ata has explained why he didn’t take his newly wed wife for a honeymoon holiday.

Irungu wedded his long-time girlfriend, 28-year-old Mary, last weekend at the exclusive Thika Greens Golf Course.

Speaking to Heads Up, he revealed that they didn’t go for honeymoon since he had to lecture at the Catholic University of Eastern Africa (CUEA)!

“I didn’t see any need for a honeymoon. In any case, I didn’t want to miss class and delay my students from graduating,” the 48-year-old lawmaker said.

Kang’ata further revealed that it took him two weeks to prepare the invite-only wedding that was attended by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Senate Speaker Kenneth Lusaka, Senate Majority Leader Kipchumba Murkomen, Mutula Kilonzo Jnr, Peter Kenneth and Murang’a Governor Mwangi wa Iria were some of the invited guests.
