The Busia couples who switched partners are living harmoniously 15 months on.
Kevin Barasa and Christopher Abwere exchanged wives in a never-too-late soul mate odyssey that started with, what else, infidelity.
Even while she was married to Kevin, Lilian Weta, 28, was seeing Christopher and Millicent was seeing Kevin. They agreed to transfer their heart’s affections – and live happily ever after. Lilian is now Christopher’s wife, Millicent Kevin’s. They have five children between them.
In September 2019, a month after confirming theirs was not a whirlwind, lust-driven romance, they went to court and signed a co-parenting agreement. Court officials confessed that theirs was such a complicated alliance the court had to conduct a social inquiry in Butula, Busia County.
Both couples now proclaim never-experienced- before happiness with their new partners. “I am a very happy woman, my children and myself live a good life,” Lilian, a mother of three was quoted as saying by a local TV station. She is expecting her fourth child, now with Christopher. Due to marital bliss, Christopher says he has shed off some years. “I looked old before. But now I look like a young man.”
Kevin’s family is equally happy. “Some of the actions that this woman does for me, my other wife did not do them for me,” he enthuses.
