Mary Kilobi marries Francis Atwoli

Mary Kilobi is married to Francis Atwoli. The two lovebirds had their union in 2016 but formalized their traditional marriage in 2018. The new broke out to the public limelight after her ‘disastrous’ and estranged fiance Jack Wanami Wamboka claimed that Cotu Secretary general Francis Atwoli is a wife snatcher.

“He proposed to me but I said no. But he insisted, saying that he was serious and would wait for even 1,000 years for me to say ‘yes’ and marry him, but I have now realised that age should never be a key consideration in a relationship. Atwoli is that guy who is never bothered about mundane issues that sometimes break up marriages,” says Kilobi.

Kilobi is Atwoli’s third wife and she has no problem being part of a polygamous family. She claims that she married Atwoli out of love and not money. The couple lives at their IIbisil home in Kajiado County.
