• “I was so happy the courts allowed me to part with the two women because they had become a burden in my life. I am happier and even feeling younger," Kibor said.
Mzee Jackson Kibor was known for his savage and witty comebacks when he pushed the envelope on what society expected of him.
Once, the city council askaris clamped his car for illegal parking but Kibor used hack saws to destroy the clamps and drive off.
Eventually, the Uasin Gishu assembly resolved that senior citizens like Kibor should enjoy free parking.
Since then, in Eldoret town, Kibor was the only resident who can park his car anywhere, even in the middle of the road, without paying fees. No one would disturb him.
Kibor passed away on Wednesday 16, 2022 after battling a long illness. Check out the details below.
Anyhow, here are some of Mzee Kibor's wise, popular and at times super savage quotes that fans will remember him for.
- “I advised the young men you cannot drink yourself silly to the extent of being carried to bed. You claim to be the man of the house yet you just snore and sleep like the dead until the next day," Kibor said.
- “I know how to love women but I respect people’s wives and families," he said.
- "Just live well with people, respect and value everyone and don't be prideful or arrogant. Then God will bless you as he has blessed me," Kibor said.
- “I was so happy the courts allowed me to part with the two women because they had become a burden in my life. I am happier and even feeling younger," Kibor said after his third and final divorce in 2018.
- “I have done all that I could and in the best way possible. I guess no one can say I am a bad person and when God takes me away any time I will have no regrets," Kibor said.
- “Even though they were my wives, they really disturbed me, abandoning me to struggle alone, even denying me my conjugal rights and ganging up with my children to disinherit me by illegally taking over some of my assets and selling them off," the patriarch said.
- His land disputes with his children and a daughter-in-law turned ugly and he once drew a pistol on a son whom he claimed wanted to attack him with a panga in a land quarrel. “I was so angry and would have shot him if he had attacked me. I just drew the gun to show him that I was ready," the patriarch said.
- “I had thought of writing a will but after I die no one would respect it and I would be nowhere to supervise. I better finish everything so when God takes me, I will have no case with anyone," Kibor said.
- “I will only give them wealth as I wish," he said.
