Uhuru Kenyatta is not my in-law – Chiloba

IEBC chief executive Ezra Chiloba has come out to clear the air on his alleged relations with President Uhuru Kenyatta and the First Family.

In an tell-it-all interview with Business Daily, Mr Chiloba denied having married from the Kenyatta family.

“Well, as much as it might be flattering it’s not true. I have no relations with the Kenyattas. You know when I was appointed, they said I was appointed because of Jomo Gecaga, a guy I’ve never met in my life,” he said.

“When the ballot paper thing came up, they said oh, it was Chiloba and Muhoho who fixed this stuff. Never met these guys in my life! Never met the president one-on-one.”

And he explained the source of the rumour.


“I saw pictures the other day of me and a lady in a wedding line-up who is supposedly my wife. That’s not my wife. I was in a wedding two years ago as the best man and the lady—an MP’s wife, was the best maid.”

Mr Chiloba is married and a father of two children.

The lanky chief executive was the object of fascination for female netizens who drooled over his features.

And he hasn’t helped matters either after hinting at his email address during the interview.

Mr Chiloba revealed that his private email address is Chiloba with an “e” at the end.

“Can I tell you something? Do you know what my private e-mail address has always been? It’s Chiloba with an “e” at the end. So I guess I have always been Chilobae,” he said.


His innocent remarks might stir team fisilets who would no doubt appreciate the juicy piece of information. Many smitten women have vowed to send out love messages to the address chilobae, ending with Gmail, Yahoo! and Hotmail to try their luck.

Mr Chiloba caught the eye of netizens while addressing the nation during the 2017 General Election. Social media was ungovernable on the man’s handsome features, giving rise to an avalanche of searches on Google on his, age, salary, date of birth, wife, wedding among other things.
