The event was attended different dignitaries among them Hassan Joho.
Emmanuel Karisa Maitha served as Kisauni MP from 1997 to his death in 2004, aged 50.
He served as Minister in the Local Government and Tourism & Wildlife dockets.
Speaking in a past interview, Juney says the two met during 2017 electioneering period.
“We are in the same line of work and so it was easy to get along. We have since been friends rather than lovers and that gave us a firm foundation to who we are today,” she said.
The two exchanged their vows at the Methodist church opposite Tononoka hall after holding a traditional wedding.
The reception was held at Bahari Gates Restaurant Mtwapa.
