A Kenyan high school teacher, Boniface Ong’era Masese, has got people talking after he proposed to girlfriend, Turah Mokeira, through a newspaper.
As the educator turned 28, he decided to propose to his longtime lover through the most adorable message. Boniface contacted a newspaper and published a tiny article during his big day but funnily enough, he chose to turn his birthday into his lady’s special day.
Others said as someone with a rural background, birthdays were not a big deal and that is why he didn’t believe in celebrating one until now. He added that his friends always poked fun at him for being so closed off to birthday festivities.
However, this time around his birthday meant some much to him because he anticipated doing something ”special.”
“Patiently yet anxiously I waited for this date to happen. I am so excited that it is finally here,” he said.
“I make the day exceptional by celebrating the feats I have garnered in life. Today as I mark this day, I only have one wish. To my lady Turah Mokeira, will you marry me?” He asked.
Many online readers congratulated Masese as they wait to see what Mokeira’s answer will be to this unique proposal.
