Kai Kron was hoping for new romantic happiness in Kenya with Emily Otieno, who was 27 years younger. But at the wedding there was a big shock: ten cows were requested as a dowry!

He was “lied to and cheated on” in both his marriages, “Goodbye Germany!” emigrant Kai Kron (56) told the VOX crew in the current episode of the docusoap. Out of boredom, the father of four then clicked on various internet dating portals. “I looked at Asians, Brazilians, Cubans, Africans…” Finally, he found what he was looking for.

“A treat to the power of ten” is the woman of his dreams, Kenyan Emily Otieno, whom he first fell in love with online and then lived after flying to his home country. At 29, she was only a year older than Kai’s youngest son, Rene, who helped his father pack. Because now he wanted to move to Kenya and start a business there by hiring staff for hotels.

“He knows how to cook, he knows how to clean and fold clothes”

Some TV viewers may have felt a little different hearing Kai’s words, but thankfully the story developed less cliché and the hired chef turned out to be a lot friendlier than one might have expected. fear at first. “I fell in love with Kai because he was so sweet and tender, caring and loving. He’s a wonderful man,” enthused the young banker, with whom Kai seemed to want a relationship of equals and whose four-year-old son, Hope, “accepted as my own son”.

“I wanted an older man,” Emily explained her decision. He doesn’t want to experiment as much as a younger one. “All I want is peace and love and to take care of my home.” The fact that Kai helps with the household chores and that they both share the work was another plus for her: “He can cook, he can take care of little Hope. He knows how to clean and fold clothes. He really knows how to do everything. in the household.” In her experience, Kenyan men, on the other hand, prefer to be served.

“It was like going to the bazaar market…”

Although the two only saw each other for five weeks during their two-year relationship, they now wanted to get married. However, the fact that Kai had to “redeem” his fiancée from her parents with ten cows gave him a headache. The ceremony that goes with it is nice, and the amount of money (a cow costs the equivalent of 150 to 200 euros) doesn’t seem to bother him. But the aftertaste that all this has in the eyes of Europeans.

At first he thought, “What is this? I don’t want to buy the woman, I want to have her because I give her my heart and vice versa. It seemed to me that I went to the bazaar and then the woman buys it…” You can’t buy them for a few thousand euros, Emily clarified, tradition has nothing to do with it. And so Kai finally got involved.

Could it be a second wife? “One is enough for me!”

Kai had only discovered a few days before, shortly after arriving in Kenya, that the handing over of the cow not only marked the engagement, but would also be the marriage. A little surprised at first, he was happy with the party the same day: “Wonderful, I’m completely flattened! – The music and dancing with the village community was “gigantically well done and staged by the family”.

“I can’t really find an expression for it, it felt so good today.” Kai did all the rituals well, finally got the consent of Emily’s mother, father, and second wife, and was now Emily’s husband under tribal law. The film crew wanted to know if he could also imagine marrying another woman? With a smile, but vehemently, the German denied: “I have a very attractive young woman with pepper in the buttocks, so one is enough for me.”
