  • The late Multi-millionaire Wambui Otieno's young widower Peter Mbugua has found love again eight years since her death.

    Mbugua first hit the headlines in 2003 while he was 25 years old when he married Otieno who was 67 years at the time.

    On Monday, Mbugua, 40, wedded his second wife, Ann Wangari, 35, at a mass wedding inside the Christian Foundation Fellowship Bunyala Road Church in Nairobi.

    The event was officiated by Bishop Harrison Ng’ang’a.

    According to a report by The Standard Newspaper, Mbugua explained that he has never regretted exchanging vows with Otieno since it was "a decision I made deep in my heart.”

    “My first wedding was full of controversy after the death of my wife. As a human being, life has to continue and I am very focused on my life,” he continued.

    He further divulged that he is very happy in his current union where he already has three children with Wangari.

    “I am very happy with my current family life. We are already blessed with three children and we are happily married," he explained.

    Mbugua and his new wife were among 50 couples who were joined together by the pastor at a ceremony which was attended by thousands of faithful.

    In 1986, the late Otieno first made headlines after she was caught in a property raw with her brother-in-law, Joash Ochieng’ Ougo, after the death of her husband, SM Otieno.

    The same dispute repeated itself in 2011 after her death when Mbugua was reportedly kicked out of her home and declared persona non-grata by her family members.

    Wambui, who was a women's rights campaigner, died of heart disease at the Nairobi Hospital on August 30, 2011, aged 75.
