On Thursday, COTU Secretary General Francis Atwoli turned a year older and his wife Mary Kilobi took to social media to celebrate him with a beautiful message.
KTN’s Mary Kilobi pens down sweet Birthday message to Hubby Francis Atwoli
Happy Birthday Mr Atwoli
The KTN News anchor jotted down a message asking God to protect her Husband and grand him good health.
“May the Almighty God continue to bless you, Keep you strong, Healthy and Happy and May He watch over you for us! @FrancisAtwoli Ebs Mbs. Unapendwa Ajabu! Happy birthday Mr Amazing!” wrote Mary Kilobi.
Met Kilobi in Kampala
In August Last year while appearing on Citizen TV’s JKL, Atwoli disclosed that, he met Ms Kilobi 13 years ago in Uganda at a time she was only 21 years-old and vowed to marry her when she matured.
“When I met her about 13 years ago, that’s is in 2005 in Kampla and she was at that time with Uganda Broadcasting Corporation (UBC) and I was in company of my second wife whom I have released to go and do politics and she has taken over. At that particular time we talked and she was still young at around 21 years old and I told her when you mature even if it takes 1000 years I will marry you. After her stay in Uganda she came back to Kenya, got a job with KTN. And because of the nature of work I do, you need somebody to assist you, you want somebody to rush and get you something and it must be a person you trust. She is my assistant, she is my lover, she is my wife and she got to take care of me. Am a stupid Lover," Said Atwoli.
Asked about their age difference Atwoli stated that “There is no age limit between a man and a woman, everywhere in the world,".
Mary Kilobi's take
On the other hand, Kilobi admits that her life changed to that of glitz and glamour after marrying the firebrand COTU Secretary General.
For the 34-year-old, this was strange as growing up as an orphan, life taught her to always take care of herself.
"There are things I want to do on my own but I now realize that there are helpers around me. And I just need to sit and enjoy. But I am used to running around and doing all these things. There are people always there with me saying madam ‘how are you?, how can I help you? There is breakfast what do you want to have? I was not used to that kind of life," she said.
