Controversial farmer and politician from Uasin Gishu County Jackson Kibor has finally come out to announce that the much-anticipated Men’s conference will be taking place on Valentine’s day this year.
Mr. Kibor has said the theme of the conference will be ‘Meandering wisely’. This he says will educate men to be firm, non-violent but not to be easily swayed by their women.
The 86 year old has always advocated for men being strong and able to defend their rights even when they are old.
In December 2018, an Eldoret court allowed Mr. Kibor to divorce his wife of 43 years.
While delivering her decision, Eldoret Principal Magistrate Naomy Wairimu said the couple’s marriage “is irretrievable”.
The octogenarian was granted his wishes after he accused his wife, Naomi Jeptoo, of deserting their matrimonial home together with their six children.
The man claimed that his wife, who left their matrimonial home voluntarily, became hostile and generally treated him with “utmost cruelty, contempt and neglect”, which caused him “untold psychological suffering”.
While speaking in Eldoret on Monday, Mr Kibor advised young people whose marriages are almost hitting the rocks to call it a day instead of waiting for disaster to strike.
