Television personalities Waihiga Mwaura and his wife Joyce Omondi, despite being in the limelight, managed to keep their relationship under wraps until a few days to their wedding.
The lovebirds started dating while they were both working for Citizen TV; Waihiga as a sports news anchor and Joyce Omondi as host of gospel show Rauka.
In a recent and rare interview with Salon Magazine, the couple revealed why they kept their relationship secret.
“We keep to ourselves and rarely post about each other apart from special occasions. Anything precious is best kept hidden and that has been our policy,” said the couple.
Waihiga and Omondi further revealed that some of their colleagues didn’t know they were dating until they tied the knot.
“We decided to be very private about our relationship from the beginning. Many people [including our colleagues] did not know that we were dating until we got married,” said the couple, adding, “That is why this is the first and only interview we shall do in a very long time.”
They told the magazine that they met in 2012 on a Sunday morning when Joyce was leaving the set of her show. Waihiga pursued the gospel musician for a while but she was hesitant to get in a relationship with him. She eventually gave in and they started dating secretly, leading to their wedding on December 18th, 2015 at Sawela Lodge in Naivasha.
