    George Kikami | NATION Mr and Mrs Loffler in traditional attire are joined by the community during their traditional Giriama wedding held at Mwangirani Giriama cultural centre in Kilifi Town on Sunday.

    A German couple got married in a colourful traditional Giriama wedding in Kilifi town.

    Mr Frank Loffler and Mrs Susana Loffler from Erfurt, Germany came to the country on October 15 just to get married at Mwangirani Giriama cultural centre.

    The love birds had inquired about the issuance of a marriage certificate in the traditional wedding when they learnt that they could only acquire one through a civil marriage. This made them travel to Mombasa for a civil marriage first.

    "We thought there was a certificate given after a Giriama girl is married off to his spouse but we were told it is done locally, we had to go to Mombasa to get a government certificate in a civil marriage before conducting this one," they said.
