A Nairobi woman has shocked many after revealing that she dumped her husband of 10 years for lying about his job.
According to a report by Tuko, the woman who resides in Embakasi and only identified as Shamim, ended her marriage after finding out her husband was a garbage collector.
She said her husband, David would leave the house smartly dressed not doubting his claims that he works a the JKIA.
“Normally, he leaves in the morning smartly dressed and you’d never notice,” Shamim said.
Shamim said she knew her husband was working at JKIA but realized he was a garbage collector after a heated confrontation with her neighbours.
“So we were fighting for water with the other women and one of them just came out and told me ‘There’s no way your special while your husband is a garbage collector.’
“I tried to defend myself knowing she was wrong but the rest backed her up and I thought then there must be some truth about it,” she added.
On why she ended her marriage, Shamim said it was because of the lies and the shame he put her through.
Not even the job, she said.
On his side, David said he lied about his job because he wanted to protect his family.
“If I never loved you, I would not apologise but I am indeed sorry for the lie and hope you can agree to us going back to what we used to be,” he said.
Shamim, however, said she won’t forgive David anytime soon, as she needs time to come to terms with her husband’s lies.
