The couple, who are already blessed with a 3-year-old daughter walked in the aisle at AG chambers in a low key wedding before throwing a lavish ceremony at Panari Hotel.

But the marriage between Kitili, a Christian from Ukambani and Ms Mude, a Somali, has attracted condemning and support from the two religions.

"The muslim population have every right to be concerned about islamic issues happening in our country and as such we have every right to condemn any act that violates our islamic sharia.the sharia totally prohibits a muslim woman to marry a christian man," wrote Abkadir Mohammed in Mandera Tribune.

"Eyes are useless when the mind is blind. How can a Somali and Muslim girl marry a christian man.Ufff ufff ufffff," added Abu Mahir in the same forum.

But in a rebuttal, Kenneth Musili rubbished off the rebellion over the controversial marriage, insisting that it boosts interreligious interactions in the community.

"There is nothing wrong with such move. We are one people and it creates cohesiveness among communities. Let us encourage such. Congratulations Amina and Kitili."

Mr Kitili first proposed to Amina in 2015 in a move that equally rattled Muslims across the country since Islamic teachings forbids such marriages.
