Raila’s son files case to end marriage

Posted by Administrator on November 25, 2011

Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s son Fidel Odinga wants to divorce his wife.

He has filed a case at the Nairobi Magistrate’s Court to end his fouryear-old marriage to Ms Veronica Wanjiru Ng’ang’a.

Ms Ng’ang’a has not responded to the case as required, prompting Fidel to ask the court to enter judgment and grant him the orders sought in her absence.

Mr Odinga, who describes himself as a businessman in the court documents, filed the case on August 4 and wants it fasttracked. Irreconcilable differences The Prime Minister’s first born child married Ms Ng’ang’a under Customary Law on March 17, 2007. Since then, the two have been living as husband and wife in Karen, Nairobi.

In the papers, he says that the marriage has broken down irretrievably. Apart from seeking to have the marriage dissolved, he also wants court orders directing the wife to pay him the costs of the case.

Mr Odinga says the marriage has broken down owing to irreconcilable differences between him and Ms Ng’ang’a. He has, however, not stated the differences.

    Cant he learn from his parents? No public person’s marriage had endured so much strain, prison, harassment, beatings, yet lda and Tinga held on. We can learn a lot from The PM’s marriage.

    Having gone thru divorce myself, it hurts me bad to see people going thru it. I wonder why families and friends cannot help these young people to work it out. They are blessed to be around family and friends who wish them well unlike us who go thru it here abroad where we are surrounded by wild dogs who call themselves friends and they are the same ones working for the downfall of your marriage. They did this to me ,,,,,,,,,magui maya,,,,,,,,,,,I pray for these young people to sustain theri marriages and make use of their close family members.

    What a mess, in one article the parents are in Israel renewing their wedding vows and in this one the son barely 30 is divorcing. I wonder what went do wrong after all the hyped wedding 🙂 goes to show a wedding is surely not a marriage

      Mwangi, you are so right. There is so much emphasis on weddings these days that people lose sight of the daily living aspect of it. You are stuck with that one person for the rest of your life. Unfortunately, there is so much pressure to marry in Kenya, people are forced to make the wrong choices. There is a very senior manager of a company in his mid 30s that was denied a promotion because he was single – not sure the logic behind it but dude married pretty quickly and a promotion followed…that is the recipe for a miserable marriage!
