  1. Am so sorry for the parents but when you know you’re not rich, why pretending to be what you’re not?. If you hire choppers, five star hotel and assorted,why will i come with expensive gifts whereby i know you’re super rich?, I rather buy you a nice book or designers pen. Anyone planning for wedding and less money, you can invite only 10 people like Bob collymore, may his soul rest in peace, amen. Wise people don’t waste money or borrow for occasion but they borrow to do business. May their souls rest in peace.

  2. Fake news. The only detail here is Mr and Mrs Odipo. Give us real details and the 5 star hotel that’s in Kisumu that was the venue, where they come from and reside and any relation.
