Court grants Prominent politician Kibor divorce from his third wife



A court in Eldoret has granted prominent politician cum farmer Jackson Kibor another divorce from his third wife Naomi Jeptoo.

This comes a year after a court allowed Kibor to divorce his second wife Josephine.

In the latest ruling, Eldoret Principal Magistrate Naomi Wairimu granted Kibor divorce from Naomi after the 86 year old politician cited cruelty, unruly behavior and lack of affection among other grounds for filing for divorce.

“She has really frustrated me and teamed up with her children to even beat me at times. Am happy with the court ruling and I will even get fat”, Kibor said after the rulling.

Kibor had been married to the third wife for more than 43 years and  52 years with the second wife.

Wairimu said in her ruling said that the marriage had irretrievably broken down.

She said the court having considered submissions by the plaintiff and defendant and evidence on record, the court cannot keep the parties together.

Kibor said he was happy with the divorce and had completely parted ways with his second wife.

Kibor had four wives one of whom is deceased.

“I will not marry another wife because am contented with my fourth wife Eunita”, said Kibor. Eunita is aged 36 years.

He said the court case and frustrations from his wife had caused him poor health but he would now eat well, relax and live longer.

“My body had really grown thin but now I will regain and live longer”, he said.

Wairimu said Kibor had proved his case before the court.

“By keeping them together in the circumstances, is to play with legal form in a manner that is completely contrary to the needs of real life and such false unity could only serve to further oppress the plaintiff which is not rewarding relationship,” ruled Wairimu.

She said cruelty was a major issue in the divorce case filed by Kibor.

Kibor had claimed in court papers that his wife had been hostile and intolerant to the extent that their marriage could not be salvaged.

He accused his wife and children of planning to kill him.
