A HAPPY GLOBAL SOUTH COVENANT: Kenyan Lesbian Marries American Bride

Courtney Nicole and Terry Ngéndo Wakonyo
A Kenyan woman wedded her American bride over the weekend in Des Moines, Iowa.

Terry Ng’endo Wakonyo, 24, and Courtney Nicole, 25 were joined together in a same-sex marriage ceremony at the Polk County Courthouse on Friday.

The newly weds held a reception on Saturday in Shawnee, Kansas where they were joined by family and friends who included scores of Kenyans.

Speaking to jambonewspot.com, the groom who is from Nairobi proudly said “we are married” when asked whether they were in a civil union.

The couple who are both residents of Kansas had to travel to the neighboring state as Kansas does not recognize same-sex marriages...¨ HERE
