Trade unionist Francis Atwoli’s second wife has accused him of forcibly evicting her and their 13-year-old son from their Kileleshwa home in Nairobi.
Roselinda Atwoli yesterday filed a complaint with police. She narrated how a visit to see their son on Tuesday evening degenerated into a furious exchange of words, culminating in her being forced out of the house together with the boy at 7pm. The two acquired the apartment in 2006.
Roselinda said she visited her son on the advice of Fida. She vied for and lost the Webuye West parliamentary seat in the last General Election. She visited her son whom Atwoli had taken away in January
Atwoli yesterday said he allowed Roselinda to come and visit but she overstayed her welcome.
Roselinda, 53, said the marital hiccups started in 2015. But it was not always like that, she says, recalling a ‘prince charming’ Atwoli whom she met and married 22 years ago while a single mother of three. The marriage bore them two kids.
