“Even though he abandoned me and our three children, he was the husband of my youth. I still have feelings for him,” she said.
Mutole narrated their love story, saying she met Oyuka in 1963 at a funeral when she was 15, and she fell in love with him at first sight.
“I was 15 years old then. I loved him instantly, and the following day, he asked to marry me,” Mutole said.
According to Mutole, Oyuka did not waste any time as he immediately paid her bride price consisting of two cows and KSh 2,000 (N7451).
Their love blossomed, and it seemed they would have a happily ever after until he went missing in 1974.
Mutole said that after Oyuka abandoned them, life became unbearable, and she returned to her father’s house.
After four years in her father’s homestead, a suitor sought her hand in marriage, and she obliged.
They had two children together, but she was widowed in 2009.
On reuniting with Oyuka, Mutole said:
“If I have get back with him, which I’m not ruling out, I have to really think through it.”
