“Alinisupport sana, actually, ‘alituma fare’ mara kadhaa (she even sent me fare several times),” Murkomen stated

After leaving UoN, they both ended up in Pretoria, South Africa, where they successfully completed their Masters’s degrees.

The two would go on to date for close to a decade before they got married in December 2009.

Murkomen is loved and hated in equal measures thanks to his strong political beliefs.

But to Gladys all she sees is a good husband and a supportive father to their kids.
