In February, popular presenter Jeff Koinange rubbished claims from a follower that he was responsible for his colleague Lilian Muli’s pregnancy. An angry Jeff told the follower: ‘Kumbaff!’ Well, barely a week later, the man behind the pregnancy was revealed, and it is none other than football administrator Jared Nevaton.
The two reportedly started dating after Lilian filed for her divorce from her ex husband Moses Kanene in 2016, seven years after her grand wedding.
Lilian filed for divorce at the Chief Magistrate’s Court at Milimani Nairobi in Divorce Cause No 19 of 2016 in which she claimed her husband was adulterous, having cheated on her with several women before deserting her. She also claimed Kanene was a man of unpredictable moods, ungovernable temper and violent in nature, thus making her life in the marriage to be shrouded in fear.
In her verifying affidavit signed in Kiambu County, Lilian, now 36, humbly prayed the court that “the said marriage with the respondent be hereby dissolved” and the cost of the petition paid by the respondent (Kanene).
Lilian said in her petition that in their troubled and turbulent marriage, Kanene had on numerous occasions treated her with utmost cruelty, and deserted her to live with unknown woman or women in Kiambu County.
“To compound the said cruelty, the respondent deserted the matrimonial home, and has been living an adulterous life and committing adultery with various women and the marriage has irretrievably broken down.”
When her current lover was contacted by weekly newspaper, The Nairobian, he said: “Why are you asking me questions about my life? We are very together (sic). This is very personal information.”
Earlier, on he had angrily responded to the question before he called back to affirm that indeed he was responsible for it. “What sort of nonsense is that? Don’t ask me stupid questions,” he had said.
