Naomy Cheptoo Kibor, an ex-wife to Uasin Gishu based veteran politician and farmer Jackson Kibor is yet to come to terms with the Eldoret court’s decision to end their marriage which had lasted for 43 years. 

Principal Magistrate Naomy Wairimu on Monday ruled that the old couple should part ways after husband, Jackson Kibor, 85, moved to court seeking for a divorce citing desertion by his ex-wife and their six children.

In an interview with a local daily, Cheptoo asked Kibor to allow her to continue living in the matrimonial home.

She, however, said that she will not appeal the court ruling. 

“In my life, I have never seen any divorce appeal succeed in Kenya; hence I will not appeal. Mzee should just give me peace by leaving me alone in this matrimonial home. He should not attempt to chase me away from this home,” Cheptoo, 62, was quoted by the Nairobi News

While allowing for divorce, the Eldoret court did not pronounce itself on the question of whether the wife, together with her children should move out of the matrimonial home or not.
