Prominent Kenyans Married To More Than One Wife 

By Faith Minayo

Marrying multiple wives in Kenya is legal.  On 1 May 2014 the polygamy bill was made legislation after years of push and shove among legislators and resistance from religious leaders. Even with this law, most men would rather their wives are not aware of the existence of another woman. This is mostly on account of many Kenyans being Christians-a religion that frowns polygamy. But we have Kenyans who have married second wives and have made it official. This writer takes a look at powerful Kenyans with more than one wife. 

Dr. Boni Khalwale-Former Kakamega Senator 

Almost every year Khalwale has a child sitting for either the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) exams or the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE. He is a proud father who has done a good job educating his many children if the scores they post in national exams are anything to go by. He is married to three wives. His first wife Adelide succumbed to  pulmonary hypertension in 2019. The ex-senator married Adelide when he was a second year at UoN and they were together for 39 years. His second wife is Jospehine and the third is Diana Okeno.
