Former Vice President and Wiper Party Leader Kalonzo Musyoka had some interesting information to reveal recently during his interview with Maisha Magic East – especially as far as his personal life goes.
The politician explained that he met his wife Pauline Musyoka back in 1972, when she was still a form two student at Mlango Girls.
He said that they met during a Christians Conference at Meru School, at a time he was in form 5.
“Huyu mke wangu Pauline tulijuana na yeye akiwa form 2 na mimi nikiwa Form 5. This was about 1972, Yeye alikuwa Mlango Girls. Alikuwa Secretary ya Kamati ya Wakristo. Na mimi nilipokuwa Meru school tukakutana katika Christians Conference, Mama Maridadi, beautiful, tall and smart. Then after that nikaona a beautiful wife is a gift from God” said Kalonzo.
The two have come a long way since then and their marriage had a serious hurdle back in 2015 when Pauline had an undisclosed illness that saw her in and out of hospital for many years.
In a 2019 interview, Kalonzo explained how it had been tough for them but that God had come through for them.
“On a personal level, it has been a year of challenges here and there but we thank God. It’s been a year when I’ve seen God perform his own miracles in my life and as a family we thank God for taking me through this year.”
Adding, “Pauline is stable, we thank God and that’s all I’d like to say. I thank all the friends who have been praying for us and for her, we still expect God’s miracle in her life,” said Kalonzo back in 2019.
