The Woman Kenyans Thought was Ezra Chiloba’s Wife Finally Speaks
She was believed to be from Uhuru's family
This became an issue especially after President Uhuru Kenyatta was declared winner in the much-disputed General Election.
Kenyans on Twitter (KOT) linked Mr. Chiloba to the Kenyatta family with some trying to justify why the IEBC declared Kenyatta the winner.
A photo of Chiloba with the alleged wife, George Muhoho’s daughter, was heavily circulated on social media to prove the relation the CEO had with the Kenyatta’s.
George Muhoho is President Kenyatta’s maternal uncle.
However, the woman in the photo has finally broken the long silence.
Charity Oner, the wife to former Rangwe MP George Oner, dismissed the claims as pure falsehood.
Speaking to NairobiNews, Mrs. Oner mentioned that she had received countless of phone calls from friends and family when the rumor started.
She also stated that she was also not related to President Kenyatta’s family.
"I am from Homa Bay and not related to Kenyattas as people have claimed. At first, I ignored the rumors until I felt there was a need to clarify because I received so many calls on Friday evening,"she said.
She condemned Kenyans for sharing unverified information on social media.
"It has become a norm for people to share unverified information which is unfair to others especially when families are involved,"she was quoted as saying.
She added that the photo was taken during a wedding of Citizen Radio’s Syombua Osiany in which she was the best maid and Chiloba the best man
At the same time, Chiloba also dismissed the allegation during an interview with a local daily.
