“He who finds a wife finds a good thing, and obtains favour from the Lord.” So says the Bible in Proverbs 18:22. Kenya’s national team, Harambee Stars goalkeeper, Arnold Origi popularly referred to as Kenya 1 is the latest celebrity to kiss the bachelor’s club goodbye. He is engaged.


The number one shot-stopper for Harambee Stars seems to have found the right person to settle down with. Origi proposed to his longterm girlfriend Zulekha Ibrahim and she agreed to marry him.  The excited footballer then took to social media to share the good news with his fans.

“When she realized that by saying yes, she’s agreed to be that one special person I want to and am gonna annoy for the rest of my life.” 

He posted accompanied by the photos below

Kenyans took to social media to congratulate Origi wishing him well. He is among the few Kenyan sportsmen who always kept their private lives under wraps and he is never involved in controversy as its a norm for local footballers.

After the engagement, it is obvious that Origi and his better half are going to walk down the aisle and so we should expect to see a wedding soon.
