We’re hap­pily mar­ried, Ki­bor’s wife tells court

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics Judiciary -

Vet­eran politi­cian Jack­son Ki­bor’s sec­ond wife Josephine Jep­koech says she loves and re­spects her hus­band of 51 years and does not un­der­stand why the politi­cian filed a di­vorce case against her.

“He is here in court and he knows very well that we have al­ways lived hap­pily. He is our hus­band and I don’t know why he brought me to court,” said Josephine, who was in the dock to tes­tify in de­fence of their mat­ri­mony.

She pro­duced pic­tures of past fam­ily events in which Ki­bor was pho­tographed with all his three wives and other fam­ily mem­bers. Ki­bor filed the di­vorce case last month to end the mar­riage with Josephine, 67. He ac­cused her of de­ser­tion, cru­elty and in­ter­fer­ing with his own­er­ship of 800 acres in Kip­k­abus, Uasin Gishu county.

Yes­ter­day, Ki­bor, who was in court, laughed heartily when Josephine showed the court one of the pic­tures they took af­ter a fam­ily func­tion. She said she has never com­mit­ted adul­tery, cru­elty or de­ser­tion against Ki­bor.
