“It was at a waterfall, where we had our first date. She was extremely shocked and had mixed reactions, but I was very confident that she would say yes,” Willis gave a detailed description of the magical moment.
But as life would turn out to be Willis Raburu separated with his girlfriend of two years, Sally Mbilu. Sources said the two decided to end their marriage after Willis discovered that Sally is older than him by 5 years while Sally accused Willis of not managing his weight despite being told, by even experts, the risks of being overweight.
Others say that Sally left Willis after she caught him red-handed in bed with another woman. But the truth in this latter allegation leaves many questions unanswered since it happened in 2016 and the actual separation happened in late 2015.
Willis and Sally are both employees of Royal Media Services but colleagues say the two don’t talk to each other anymore. More shocking is that Sally removed the Ksh. 100,000 ring that Willis bought for her and dumped it on his desk. In late 2015, It is reported that the two exchanged bitter words, which prompted the management to cool matters by allocating them duties where they could not meet at any point.
