After walking down the aisle with the love of his life, Petro Itozya Magoti went on social media to express how fortunate he is to find a girl who loves him.
“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”
“I know how many pass through you in our love. Don’t Worry My Lovely Wife. \ n I will keep loving you till the end of my life. WE HAVE WRITTEN HISTORY. We know where we have come from and where we are today. The patient eats ripe. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH MY WIFE JOYCE,” his posts read.
A debate has sparked on social media after photos of the wedding surfaced.
Many have raised concerns if the lady married the politician out of genuine love or she was after his fame and wealth.
One thing that caught their eyes is the conspicuous height difference between the bride and her groom, many celebrated the pair for looking beyond their physical appearance while others called the girl a possible gold digger.

Some people are wired to be empathetic and the love unconditionally. She’s one of such. She’s a very charitable person. Do your research.
