Governor Joho’s wife files for divorce


Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho’s estranged wife has filed for divorce before Mombasa Kadhi’s court.

In her application, Madina Giovanni Fazzini states that there is no hope of reconciliation or compromise of whatever nature or kind between her and the Governor.

According to an affidavit sworn by the petitioner, the two got married on 11th February 2011 and were blessed with two children.

“We lived together as husband and wife from the onset of our marriage until January 2013 when we separated living quarters,” says Fazzini.

The petitioner adds that in June 2013, Joho moved out of their matrimonial home and left her and their two children there until September 2020 when she moved out and started living on her own.

She further states that since Joho moved out, the substance of their marriage has dissipated and has no basis to be sustained from a legal point and/or social standpoint.

“I am clear and unequivocal that the marriage between her and the governor has broken irretrievably with no chance of revival given that we have both moved on over the years,” says Fazzini.
