This might be the first time ever that Harambee Stars captain Victor Wanyama together with his elder brother MacDonald Mariga have openly put up answers on their marriage plans.
The duo definitely is Kenya’s most celebrated sporting family. Wanyama who currently plays for English Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur, while his brother Mariga is based in Spain, at second-tier club Real Oviedo.
The two brothers both have appeared for the national football team. Recently they opened up during an interview with media personality Jeff Koinange on Wednesday night.
“I think that is a difficult question. For me, I decided that career comes first and marriage follows later on,” said Mariga when asked when he will be getting married.
Wanyama added: “I am of the opinion that when the right time comes, everything will fall into place.”
Despite their successes on the football pitch, Wanyama and Mariga have successfully managed to keep their private lives out of the public eye.
THEIR LOVE LIFE
In the past years, Wanyama has been linked with singer Victoria Kimani and is rumored to be dating a media-shy London based lady of African origin. The couple are however yet to be seen in public.
Mariga meanwhile dated and split with Rwandan beauty Ariane Umutoni a while back. He is also known to have fathered a daughter with an Italian based lady of Senegalese origin who is based in Parma.
During the interview, Mariga also revealed how he had to handle sustained pressure from her mother to buy her a house.
“I love my mum so much and I understood when she told me she needed a house. But at that time she kept pressurizing me and yet I had no money. So I would tell her to look for a house and get back to me. When she got one, I’d say ‘no that location isn’t ideal’… all this time while buying time and looking for money,” he explained.
