Last weekend, former longtime girlfriend of Kenyan football star McDonald Mariga got engaged to a rich Rwandese tycoon.
Ariane Umutoni said ‘Yes’ to the proposal from her fiance only identified as Phil in a grand traditional ceremony hosted in Kigali on Saturday. The Rwandese beauty reportedly flew in three of her Kenyan friends, whom she met during her stay in Nairobi, for the weekend celebrations.
Wedding date details are yet to be announced but word on the street has it that she is pregnant.
Mariga and Umutoni dated for five years before the relationship finally went south in 2013. The Ex Inter Milan star had reportedly made partial dowry payment to his then ‘fiancée’s’ parents.
Mariga is said to have splashed millions of shillings then to buy a pricey engagement ring and a vehicle for his lady love. Their relationship hit the rocks when Mariga developed an eye for his current girlfriend, Hawa – who is said to have West African roots. The lovebirds met in Italy where Mariga was based in at the time.
