She added that they thought an open ground would be better compared to the AG’s office.

During the first opening, a number of couples were seen enjoying the calm environment of the school before tying the knot.

Gachu also clarified that interviews will be held at the AG’s office while the registrations will be done online.


“Due to coronavirus pandemic the registration will still be conducted online but the interview will be done at the office and later on the marriage will be conducted at Nairobi primary,” Gachu said.

She added that only the bride and the groom with their two witnesses will be allowed to attend the event.
