Cotu-Kenya secretary general Francis Atwoli separated from his second wife Roselinda Simiyu after she decided to dabble in politics. But we have a class of men like Francis Nyamiobo who put their weight behind their better halves ambitions. Mr Francis is the husband of nominated senator Millicent Omanga.
