A Bungoma politician has been left fuming and cursing after COTU secretary Francis Atwoli stole and impregnated his wife who is also KTN Swahili anchor.
A bitter Jack Nelson Wanami Wamboka, politician and aide to cabinet secretary for water Eugene Wamalwa , has told friends he is going to teach the 70-year old Atwoli a lesson hard to forget.
Wamboka is accusing Atwoli of using his ill-gotten wealth to take away his wife, whom he has bought an apartment.
“ I am going to bring Atwoli down,” Wamboka confided in a friend. “He is using money stolen from poor workers to wreck people’s homes.”
According to a source familiar with the scandal, the lady has already moved out of her matrimonial home after Atwoli bought her an apartment and made her pregnant.
The 34-year anchor works with the popular KTN TV station as Swahili anchor cum news reporter. The lady, who also hails from Bungoma, previously worked in Uganda with Uganda Broadcasting Corporation. She has a Bachelor of Arts degree from Makerere University.
The husband, Wamboka contested the Bumula parliamentary seat during the 2017 general elections on Ford Kenya ticket.
Atwoli , who is married with three wives, was in the past also accused of seducing and taking away Lugari MP Ayub Savula’s wife. The woman deserted Savula after Atwoli showered her with money and gifts.
According to sources, Atwoli has since dumped the woman who is now desperately trying to reconcile with Savula.
