After news broke of the arrest of the controversial businessman Jared Otieno many quickily recalled his flamboyancy, especially his excessively publicized wedding.

In 2015, Otieno sent social media into a frenzy with his Sh15 million lavish pre-wedding with Kendi Mwiti that featured choppers and high-end fuel guzzlers.

The ceremony was attended by then Kisumu Senator Anyang’ Nyong’o (now Governor), Meru’s Kiraitu Murungi and former cabinet minister Chris Obure.

The wedding was held at the Windsor Golf & County Club, Nairobi and the reception at Safari Park along Thika Road.

Jared Otieno and Kendi Mwiti wedding ceremony that was held in Oct 2015 made history in Kenya as the most expensive wedding.

It is also remembered for how well it was organized and the big people who attended it.

The bride enjoyed a ride from her parents’ home in Runda to Windsor Golf Club on a white horse carriage.

The Kenyan police band with their sweet melodies marched in front of the bride.

Everything at Kendi Mwiti wedding was up to the standard and only the best wedding planners were given an opportunity to showcase their good work; thus ensuring the ceremony was memorable to the couple and their guests.

The high-profile figures from politicians to media personalities included Swaleh Mdoe from Citizen TV, comedian Jalang’o, Senator James Orengo, Governor Anyang Nyong’o and his wife Dorothy Nyong’o, Governor Kiraitu Murungi, Naisula Lesuuda, Amason Kingi from Kilifi, former Kisumu Governor Jack Ranguma, Mutea Iringo, ambassador Chirau Ali Mwakwere among others.

“They have wreaked havoc on many people. This is a criminal enterprise and we are determined to dismantle it.”

The raid didn’t come as a surprise as the flamboyant businessman has been linked to related scams in the past.

He was arrested after several complaints to the police by four foreign nationals.

According to the police, the Mr Otieno often told the complainants that monies they sent him was used to pay government taxes and exportation expenses.
