A Kenyan high school teacher, Boniface Ong’era Masese, is trending after he proposed to girlfriend, Turah Mokeira, through a newspaper.
The teacher who clocked 28, contacted a newspaper to have a small article published about his birthday.
According to Masese, as someone with a rural background, birthdays were not a big deal and that is why he didn’t believe in celebrating one until now. He added that his friends always poked fun at him for being so closed off to birthday festivities.
However, this time around his birthday meant some much to him because he anticipated doing something ”special.”
“Patiently yet anxiously I waited for this date to happen. I am so excited that it is finally here,” he said.
“I make the day exceptional by celebrating the feats I have garnered in life. Today as I mark this day, I only have one wish. To my lady Turah Mokeira, will you marry me?” He asked.
