In 2015, Kenyans could not get enough of the then Budalangi MP Ababu Namwamba and his now ex-wife Priscilla.
He was young, vocal, eloquent, and sharp both in mind and sartorial sense- and the cherry was the fact that he had a stunning wife by his side
Priscilla would inundate social media with posts and photos that purveyed them as the perfect family. There was a particular post she made during the 2015 Father’s Day
“Ababu, you’re so much more than just a ‘husband’. You’re a partner in my life that I value more than you know. You’re the father of our children whom I’ve watched you love daily,”
Sharing several pictures with their two young children, Priscilla went on to add that the Budalangi leader was everything that she had hoped for.
“You’re a great father, a great husband, and a great man. You’re everything I hoped for to help in raising a family. You’re my husband, my friend, the love that I’ll always need. Two things you should never forget that Father’s Day is about you and that I totally love you, even more than I did before! Happy Father’s Day dear and all other fathers!”
Then in 2018, it all came tumbling down like Olympus.
Prisca left their matrimonial home over allegations that he was cohabiting with his niece, Cecilia Moraa, besides having affairs with two college students – one of whom has been identified Luciana Mimo Andafu, who was then a student at Moi University who hails from Vihiga County but lives in Budalang’I.
“She rarely goes out of the compound, but just enjoys the cool breeze from Lake Victoria,” said a neighbor.
The other woman was the 2018 Miss Tourism Busia winner, Ann Paula Machio, who was then 21 years old.
She apparently met Ababu in May during the beauty pageant in Busia, where she won Sh75,000. Paula was a fourth-year student at the Technical University of Mombasa and a native of Butula Constituency but is now holing up at Eden Valley Estate.
According to Priscilla’s brother Patrick, Ababu alleged that Prisca was cheating on him and drinks too much.
“I have told him that he is part of our family since they have three children with Prisca and in such cases, ties between families cannot be ignored, and it was up to him to decide whether he still wants to live with Prisca or not.
“You cannot force a man to live with a woman. If he has decided to call it quits with our daughter, so be it,” said Patrick, adding that, “I pleaded with him but he was adamant and unforgiving.”
Even after elders reportedly convened a meeting and resolved the matter. Ababu is said to have continued flirting with Moraa, prompting Prisca to leave their matrimonial home in early May 2018. When she returned in late June to check on the children, Patrick says she found Moraa still pitching a tent in the home.
Well, it seems the CAS has moved on and he shared photos of him celebrating one of his sons’ birthday with a rivetting, natural beauty by his side
It would seem he likes them young, with short hair and natural- typical Kienyeji. Well, better than these leeches of broilers called City Slay Queens
