Wife of Former Minister Who Went from Having a Lavish Karen Life to Selling Chapatis on Mombasa Road

Former Foreign Affairs minister and Rarieda MP Raphael Tuju's wife Ruth Akinyi is well known for their contentious divorce.

What many people don't realise is that years after Tuju and his ex-lover broke up, everything changed for the better.

The standard reported that after Akinyi's separation from her minister spouse many years ago, she was unable to maintain the lavish lifestyle she had enjoyed before.

Akinyi, it is said, has been reduced to making matumbo and chapatis for her guests at her hotel on Mombasa Road at an ungodly hour of the morning.

Alafter the divorce, the former Minister pledged to pay Akinyi's debt on the $180,000 bank automobile loan in two monthly instalments of $90,000 in court documents, in addition to a maintenance allowance of Sh200,000 each month, notwithstanding her suffering.

Further, Tuju had promised to pay for any and all medical bills his wife could incur.

Years later, though, she apparently continued her life of peddling chapatis.
