While in Bungoma, in the year 2018, she met the hunk, Albert Wanyonyi.

It was when the man who earns a living by riding a boda boda won the heart of the American woman.

She used to give me a ride in her car almost every day and I wanted to tell her how hard I had fallen in love with her,” Albert told KTN News.

Albert revealed that at that time he did not know Kiswahili or English, he only spoke vernacular which Carey never understood.

But all that was never something to block their relationship.

He did not speak English at the time we met but God helped him learn and we were able to converse,” Carey said disclosed.

According to the 35 year old woman, she knew handsome Wanyonyi was the love of life and a gift from God.

She also said that she admired how hardworking Wanyonyi was and still is.

“I knew he did not have a lot of money but he was a hard worker. I considered his kindness, I considered his heart,” Carey added.

Both their families and the village at large approved their union and blessed them as husband and wife.
