A heartbreaking end has just hit the young Kenyan couple, Ann Wambui and Wilson Mutura who became an internet sensation after photos from their simple wedding in January 2017 went viral.
The famous Kenyan Sh100 wedding couple has had to sell their “supermarkets” after failing to make enough profit to sustain their livelihood.
Wilson Mutura, whose wife Ann is expectant with their first child, told Nairobi News that he struggled with the shop for months before finally selling it off.
He is now back on the road at Kasarani selling apples which was his initial job before the Sh100 wedding fame.
Mutura told Nairobi News:
“We were making sales that were as little as Sh200 per day and at the end of the month had to borrow money for rent and so we decided to sell it off and buy enough fruits’ stock.”
The couple’s sponsor, Bonfire Adventures, who stocked their shop, had promised to pay three months’ rent as well as mentor the couple.
When Nairobi News asked if they consulted their mentor before closing shop, Mutura said:
“Our mentor was always busy. He never shared any business tips so in the end we had to make a decision on our own.”
Bonfire Adventures, through its marketing manager, however refuted the claims stating:
“We have been with them all though even during the recent baby shower we were with them. Let me find out exactly what happened and get back to you.”
Nairobi News adds that Mutura also claimed news that they had a baby shower was false as they are yet to hold any event ahead of the baby’s arrival.
The couple has however been getting free premarital clinics from a private hospital Komarock Modern Healthcare that offered a free maternity package.
