A young man brought the the arrivals hall of the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport to a standstill after he dropped his knee at the airport to propose to his longtime girlfriend. Antony Buluma popped th question as he went to pick his woman Gettie Nthiiri at the airport.
A group comprising family, friends and colleagues carrying placards written: “Gettie will you marry me?” received her at the airport. She tearfully accepted the proposal
Unbeknownst to Gettie, Mr Bulama – an alumnus of the United States International University –, had actually arrived at the airport Monday evening to prepare for the big moment.
Prior to proposing, Mr Bulama patiently held a large bunch of flowers, while he waited for his partner to arrive. Spotting his other half approaching, a smile erupted on his face and he went down on his left knee, popped the question as a band equipped with a musical keyboard and a guitar serenaded her.
Heartwarming photos showed Gettie running toward her boyfriend and throwing herself into his arms.
As Gettie said ‘yes’, the assembled crowds cheered and a clatter of smartphone shutter sounds followed like a round applause.
“This is God’s doing. I give Him the glory. He is worthy to be praised. Thank you all who took part in making this real. To Gettie Nthiiri you are my choice. I found you and discovered a beautiful thing. You are my love; may God be our guide,” Mr Bulama said after Gettie accepted his proposal.
