Ruto seduced me for his son who has now abandoned me and his kids
Former Bomet Governor Isaac Rutto arranged a wife for his firstborn son who has now abandoned her and the kids after six years of marriage.
The papers filed in court by Chepngetich Koech who is the ex-governor’s daughter-in-law says that she met Rutto at her brother’s burial in Bomet in 2015 where he had gone to condole with her family.
Through lawyer Danstan Omari, Koech says that Rutto who is now a commissioner at the Judicial Service Commission asked her to resign from her job in Nairobi and move back to Bomet where he gave her a job as an environment officer in the County.
She further claims that after relocating , the former county boss gave her his son’s number and asked her to call him so that they could know each other.
“Within a while, the Defendant and the Plaintiff were talking and meeting up and this led to them getting into an arranged romantic relationship,” reads court papers.”
They got married later that year in December in what she says was a lavish wedding attended by dignitaries and politicians.
Lawyer Omari has claimed that it is their belief that the arranged marriage by the governor was a calculated move aimed at gaining political mileage.
Koech claims that her husband Edwin Rono left their matrimonial home in 2021 with no communication or justifiable cause.
She says that he left her and the children to fend for themselves knowing well that she did not have a source of income.
Koech lost her county job when her father-in-law then lost the 2017 gubernatorial elections since her job was on contract not permanent.
