City businessman causes a stir as wife and lover clash on Facebook group

Picture this. Your wife takes to a popular women’s group on Facebook to ‘expose’ a husband snatcher, only for the supposed lover to flash out a marriage certificate!

A flamboyant Nairobi businessman, who is eyeing an elective seat in 2017, has for the last one week been at the centre of such a vicious love triangle that played out on the popular Kilimani Mums Nairobi Uncensored Facebook group.


The drama started when his wife posted photos of a fast-rising Nairobi socialite on the group, whom she accused of sleeping with her husband and leaving behind too many traces for her to find.

Women in the group sympathized with the wife, prompting a friend of the supposed lover to post a ‘marriage certificate’, which appears to have been issued by the Registrar of Islamic Marriages in Nairobi.

The certificate indicated that the flamboyant businessman was in fact married to the socialite.

The Nairobi News cannot vouch for the authenticity of the marriage certificate.

The surfacing of the ‘marriage certificate’ added fuel to the drama, with the wife subsequently sharing photos that revealed the identity of the supposed lover.


Intriguingly, the photos show the supposed lover kneeling before at an enclosed room that the wife claims was a ‘witch-doctor’s shrine’ in Machakos.

In her defence, the socialite, who enjoys a massive following on Instagram, uploaded the same photos on her account and said they were behind-the-scene shots of an upcoming TV series.

Undaunted, the wife went on to share a screen-shot of a chat she had with her husband on the controversy in which he declared not knowing the said socialite and dismissed the marriage certificate as fake.

The wife made sure she poked her love rival on Facebook on all the posts.

The businessman has declined to comment on the matter. Efforts by Nairobi News to reach him through calls and text messages remained unanswered.
