Human activist Boniface Mwangi has seen it all! His profession has seen him battle with the police and at the same time collide with big politicians in the country.
Well, many tend to ask whether he really loves himself since he is always out to get blows and kicks from the police. However being an activist requires self sacrifice and I bet this is what he does.
Anyway though he is one who likes to use social media, you will rarely find Boniface Mwangi parading his family. This is because of personal reasons but when he does it, he leaves many amazed by his love towards them.
Boniface Mwangi celebrates his wife
In a new post shared on his Instagram page, Boniface Mwangi pours out his heart to his wife in a beautiful message.
For the first time he narrates how he proposed via a video call all the way from South Africa where he had traveled to. He narrates saying;
On July 10 2007, to celebrate my 24th birthday and the anniversary of our first date, I proposed to her. Just beforehand I had travelled to South Africa and visited Mandela’s cell on Robben Island. I shot the video of me proposing in that cell. Nelson Mandela spent 18 of his 27 prison years confined to that small space. The floor was his bed and there was a bucket for a toilet. I proposed from the shadows of a man I had grown up celebrating and admiring. She wept as she watched the video and when it ended I went on my knee and proposed. This was in the presence of her parents, her close friend and my workmates, as they were celebrating my birthday with me. Maybe the video was a sign of the direction my life would take – a determination to fighting injustice. Incidentally, Njeri had sworn that she would never marry a journalist, a politician or a younger man. I was a journalist who wanted to join politics and slightly younger than her. On International Women’s Day, March 8, 2008 we were married. My wife is the fire that keeps me going. Happy International women's day.
