Kalonzo Musyoka: My wife is well and undergoing treatment in Germany
National Super Alliance (NASA) co-principal Kalonzo Musyoka has dismissed social media rumours about his wife, Pauline.
Kalonzo in a phone call conversation with a vernacular radio station dispelled the rumours and said that his wife was still undergoing treatment in Germany.
Not much has been heard of Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka’s wife, Pauline Kalonzo ever since she was admitted to hospital in Germany. Pauline is allegedly suffering from an undisclosed ailment, which reportedly is the reason Kalonzo has been missing in NASA’s recent political engagements.
According to sources at Nairobi Hospital, Pauline was first admitted on a Tuesday evening on December 29, 2015 after doctors advised her to stay in hospital for further checks. The former veep and his close family members were spotted at the hospital the following morning.
When Pauline was first admitted at Nairobi, Hospital in 2015 doctors were to discharge her after conducting several tests. Pauline, who is a senior employee at the Central Bank of Kenya, then was in a stable condition. But soon after she sought medical treatment abroad.
“Lately, she has not been quite consistent,” said a source at the Central Bank, where she has been working for a very long time. “She comes to work occasionally, though she never sticks around for long.”
Kalonzo married Pauline in 1985. The couple has four children.
Despite her husband’s high political profile, the shy woman often preferred driving herself in a Toyota Corolla.
Pauline is so laid back that even gospel musicians Size 8 and Willy Paul in their 2013 hit song, Tam Tam, claimed they didn’t know the name of Kalonzo Musyoka’s wife.
Even when her son, Klein Kalonzo, graduated from the University of Nairobi School of Journalism and Media Studies, she didn’t accompany her husband for the graduation ceremony.
