Woman Rep Gladys Shollei Weds ‘Mzungu’Boyfriend a Year After Messy Divorcefrom Former Husband
Uasin Gishu Woman Representative Gladys Boss Shollei has tied the knot with her ‘Mzungu’ boyfriend.
Reports indicate the two exchanged vows in a private invite-only ceremony held in Eldoret on Saturday. It was presided over by ordained clergy under strict Covid-19 protocols.
Sources said less than five politicians were invited to the event conducted in a private venue where attendees were restricted from entering with their phones and only one photographer was allowed to take photos.
In January, pictures of Gladys and his Caucasian fiancé leaked on social media just weeks after her bitter divorce from her former husband Sam Shollei, a former CEO of Standard Media Group.
Shollei remarried journalist Faith Rono in January 2020 at a private wedding attended by close friends and family.
Gladys filed a divorce suit in 2016 accusing her former husband of neglecting his responsibilities to the family and being abusive.
On January 8th, 2020 a court ordered the dissolution of their 26-year marriage over irreconcilable differences. Gladys was granted custody for their two children and allowed to keep their Kitisuru property and their Uasin Gishu farm.
Gladys, a lawyer, previously served as the Registrar of Judiciary before she was fired in 2016 over allegations of insubordination, misconduct, and financial impropriety.
She was elected to Parliament in 2017 as the Woman Representative for Uasin Gishu County.
