  • Samburu Senator Steve Lelegwe married his second wife Irene Sais Nakae in a lavish ceremony in Kajiado County on Saturday, November 21, 2020.

    This comes just months after he divorced his first wife Beatrice and subsequently kicked her out of their matrimonial home.

    The venue had white modern decor while the bride was dressed in a red gown as her groom donned traditional moran attire including sandals.

    The ceremony was attended by hundreds of the couple’s friends and family including local politicians. 

    The towering four-storey red and blue cake stole the show at the reception as the couple toasted to a bright future together. 

    The wedding was symbolic of the cordial relationship between Maa communities of the North and South.

    The senator’s previous marriage was marred with drama ending in a bitter divorce in March 2020. 

    His first wife Beatrice, a mother of three, stated that she and her children had been forced to leave in a small house in Kangemi, Nairobi County.

    She protested that Lelegwe had moved in with his girlfriend into their matrimonial home in Nairobi.

    The legislator, on the other hand, denied that he had in any way neglected his children. 

    He, however, admitted to having left his wife and stated that he would marry his girlfriend by the end of the year.
