Binyavanga Wainaina will be getting married to his boyfriend in South Africa.
The top Kenyan author made this announcement in a recent tweet.
Binyavanga Wainaina came out as gay four years ago. The 47-year-old author, who won the 2002 Caine Prize for African writing for his short story Discovering Home, has not named his boyfriend.
