When Johnson Onunga’s posters seeking for a wife went viral on social media circles and tabloid headlines, he was ridiculed and labeled desperate. Now, he is having the last laugh after finding an ideal woman who fits the bill.
Mr Onunga who was featured in a local daily over a week ago said he spent Sh3500 on posters outlining the qualities he was looking for in a woman to settle down with. The poster also had a 30th March deadline for applicants to submit their credentials.
A month before the deadline and over 800 calls later, Pauline Akinyi, who after reading the story in the dailies decided to apply for an interview, and came up tops.
“Eight hundred people called me, but only 12 appeared to be serious and committed,” says Onunga, adding that, “Pauline came to me from Kisumu, having seen my story in the paper. She was overqualified! She is young, humble and soft-spoken, and genuinely cares for me.”
Pauline who worked in a boutique in Kisumu travelled to Ahero to meet Onunga and now, wedding plans are being made.
“We have already begun our marriage. We will make it official in a church in a few months, but as of now, we are husband and wife,” Onunga said.
He adds: “My heart overflows with joy. I only ask for your prayers, for our union to be blessed.”
