In 2019, the news anchor threw social media into a frenzy with photos of her colourful wedding at Mnarani Club, Kilifi County.
Mwaka said ‘I do’ to fiancé Samuel Nguma Ndhuli in a ceremony attended by a good number of his colleagues at the Standard Group including Lofty Matambo, Radio Maisha’s Sugar Boy, Dancan Khaemba and Jeff Kirui.
