Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho’s wife Madina Giovanni Fazzini has filed for a divorce before Mombasa Chief Kadhis Court after nine years of separation.
Fazzini filed the case on January 26, 2022, and wants the court to dissolve the marriage.
She states that the marriage is irretrievable and there's no hope of reconciliation.
"I am clear and unequivocal that our marriage has broken down irretrievably with no chance of revival given we have both moved on over the years.
"Since the respondent, Joho moved out of our matrimonial home in June 2013, the substance of our marriage has dissipated and has no basis to be sustained from a legal and social standpoint,” Fazzini states in her affidavit filed in court.
The two got married on February 11, 2011, and they have two children aged nine and eight years.
Fazzini stated that they lived with Joho as husband and wife from then until January 2013 when they separated living quarters.
“I have lived in our matrimonial home until 2020. Since then I have been living on my own,” she said.
Governor Joho has been given 14 days to respond to the petition.
