Wangwe Nicholas: The exes having no choice but to be together for an occasion that requires them to have a joint sitting!
Benjamin Bogonko: Divorce yangu bado iko in the process, ikiisha tu hivi and I will be all yours babe.
Sue Qinuthia: I’m married but it’s not thaaat serious!
Kerubo Makambi: We are just roommates, sleeping in different bedrooms.
Brainny Oto: When both of you are madly in cheating love but he just told you no pda in public ndo raia isijue so now you have to act like you guys hamjuani.
Vance: When you finally meet that in-law who has been meddling in your affairs.
Mwende Kioko: When you’re newly divorced but have to attend your child’s school meeting together.
Elsewhere, Cherera addressed photos of her with Azimio la Umoja leaders.
Following their rejection of the results, photos of Cherera with Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho and Azimio principal Raila Odinga emerged online.
It also emerged that she was serving as Joho’s Chief of Staff prior to her appointment to IEBC.
However, reacting to the photos, the commissioner has told Kenyans that her alleged close association with Azimio will not change her stand on the presidential results.
“My colleagues and I have indicated irregularities in the Presidential tallying process
“It is not fair to personalize issues. Photos of me discharging duties in my previous position have nothing to do with the facts we have laid bare,” Cherera said.
Four IEBC commissioners led by Cherera maintained that they could not take ownership of the election results.
They argued that the final process of verification of the result was not transparent hence their resistance.
The other commissioners are Francis Wanderi, Justus Nyangaya and Irene Masit.
