"coming for our bride" Dot's Dowry Ceremony - December 31, 2016

The day when Bondo united with Karungu thanks to you Tom and Dot! We missed you both...

The big day was finally with us..one that outdid all other important days like Christmas and Boxing day. December 31st, the day 'soldiers' from Bondo matched (on behalf of their son, one Tom Ndolo) into David and Unita Oluoch's home in style to pay dowry for their one and only daughter!

Nestor and Peter drove in the herd of cattle in style!

Before any serious business could be conducted, the long awaited guests were treated to home made delicious meal, prepared by Dot's brothers, sisters, mothers and in laws

A hearty laugh keeps the pressure away
Our very own 'Lupita' was amazing and stunning
Judy made sure everything was at the right place
Our mothers busy at work

And let the feast begin!

And now to serious business....this begun with an introduction of everyone who graced the function...

Entourage from Bondo was led by CT Owuor (second from left) - the very able eloquent spokesman
The Karungu team was well presented by Joseph Ngome - and he did a great job!
Dot sisters looked stunning despite the 'sweaty' preparations

After introductions, it was time to receive gifts sent by Tom Ndolo...even without looking into the loaded envelopes, the wide smiles said it all!!!!

All eyes on the queen of the day!!!
Peter stole the show, openly declaring that he was on a serious mission - to get a wife!

After serious business, and when everyone was happy with the goodies, it was time for some Kodak moments spiced up by Kiage divas...

Tom and Dot, thank you for making fathe and mathe very proud. Dot, this day will remain in our hearts for a long time!!!
