I think it’s not fair to judge Raila on the basis of his sons short comings. Fidel is over 18 years and therefore has the right to making his own decision. Only Fidel and his wife can tell what happens behind the curtains. There is no parent who is happy to see the family of his child collapse. There are a few questions we need to ask ourselves
2. Is it possible that Fidiel’s wife was one of those opportunistic ladies who force themselves into marriage because of property and the man has realized he did the wrong thing?
3. Is it possible that there was mpango wa kando (a woman by the side – secret affair) and the guy is being forced by the other woman to divorce quickly so that she can take over?
4. Is it possible that she was used as a gadget for votes and now is not needed any more?
