"When I met this man (her husband), I was a friend to the daughter of this man. I visited the daughter's house.
"Now, the father came later in the day. When the father came, he found me inside the daughter's house. The first expression I saw the father, that is my husband now. He spotted me. I spotted him and we found love that day."
Karioki says he thought marrying Winnie was impossible
The nonagenarian told Afrimax he lived alone for years after the demise of his wife and realised he loved Winnie when he saw her at his daughter's place.
"From when my first wife passed away, I lived alone until I met this girl. She came with my daughter and they were friends. When I realised I loved her, I didn't think she felt the same because she seemed too young for me.
"I thought it was impossible because I had approached others asking them to marry me but they ignored me, considering me too old."
The couple's marriage got the approval of Winnie's parents and produced two kids, a boy and a girl.
