Kenyan Binyavanga Wainaina to marry his Nigerian partner in South Africa

“Nothing has surprised me more than coming to love this person,” Binyavanga says.

Kenyan author Binyavanga Wainaina has proposed to his long-term partner after dating for more than five years.

The couple is now set to wed early next year.

Binyavanga, who publicly revealed his sexual orientation during his 43rd birthday on January 18, 2014 in an article entitled “I am a homosexual, mum,” made the wedding announcement on Wednesday through social media.

“I asked my love for his hand in marriage two weeks ago. He said yes, nearly immediately,” he posted on Twitter.

“He is Nigerian. We will be living in South Africa, where he will be studying next year. We will get married there, early next year.”

Although the wedding will be held in South Africa, Binyavanga has promised his Kenyan fans a grand wedding reception in Nairobi.
