Former Kakamega Senator, Boni Khalwale, is mourning.
His first wife, Adelaide Khalwale is dead.
K24 Digital reports that Adelaide passed away on Saturday morning, October 5, after a long battle with cancer.
The ex-senators wife was working at the Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology in Kakamega County.
Boni Khalwale in previous media interviews revealed that he has two wives, the now-late Adelaide and his second partner Josephine Khalwale.
In one interview with The Standard, he revealed that while in campus, he would get a stipend which helped him marry his first wife while he was in the second year.
“We were given a Sh1,500 stipend, which quite a lot then. Life as such was relatively easier, and I could even afford to marry while in second year.”
Adding, “However, my marriage nearly collapsed, since girls would hang around me because I was a politician and the medical school students’ representative. Well, taking a tough course was probably also an attraction.”
The man who is synonymous with bullfighting, continued, “I nonetheless stuck to my girl who is today my wife. At the time, she had dropped out in form two because of me. I, however, made sure she went back to class and is currently working at a local university.”
From Mpasho, we send our sincere condolences to the family. Poleni sana for your loss.
May she rest in peace.
