Popular personality and journalist Mary Kilobi has spoken on claims that his husband the Central Organization of Trade Unions (COTU) Secretary General Francis Atwoli married a 23-year-old woman.
Taking to her Instagram account, Kilobi ironically wondered who the said woman was and what date was her marriage ceremony with Atwoli stating that she will look for her and have a conversation.
“Huyu Dem wa 23 Year Old Msomali au sijui Jamila Mbugua si ametesa Jameni? Watu hawalali!. Mkimuona salimia yeye sana. Nitamtafuta tujadiliane,” she wrote.
This came days after rumours spread widely on social media that Atwoli had secretly married a 23-year-old Muslim woman
According to the rumours, Atwoli walked down the aisle with the woman while in Watamu, Kilifi County over the weekend.
Later on the COTU boss dismissed the rumours noting that he had travelled with his family in Kilifi to celebrate his 71st birthday.
He further said that he has not married any other woman revealing that he is free to marry another woman anytime but would not do it secretly.
“That is a lazy rumour from some idle Kenyan. I was at the coast with my wife Mary (Kilobi Atwoli). In any case, there is no problem in marrying but if I have to do that I do it publicly not hiding from anyone,” Atwoli said.
Atwoli went ahead to thank his family and everyone involved in making his birthday special and memorable.
“May I take this opportunity to say a BIG THANK YOU for all your warm birthday wishes. Sincere gratitude to my wife Mary Atwoli, @EugeneLWamalwa and my son Philipo, who took me on a yacht trip around the Indian Ocean,” Atwoli wrote.
