Bongo star Ali Kiba’s relationship has been hit with a setback as his Kenyan wife, Amina Khalef has filed for a divorce at the Mombasa Kadhi’s court citing stress and neglect.
It is reported that Amina filed the petition on January 8, 2021 close to four years after getting married.
Alikiba got married in Mombasa in 2018 in an elaborate Islamic wedding attended by among others, Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho. They proceeded to live as a couple in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania shortly before Amina relocated back to Kenya.
Amina complaint that the relationship was becoming toxic with frequent misunderstandings. These fights begun just four months after their wedding.
In the petition, the mother of two demanded KSh 200,000 monthly upkeep for their two children, noting that Ali Kiba has not been providing for her and their children.
Amina states that maintenance provided by the musician is insufficient and it would come after a back and forth.
The Tanzanian musician has since been given two weeks to respond to the allegations.
“Should you fail to appear within the time mentioned above, the plaintiff may proceed with the suit and judgment given in your absence,” an order at the Kadhi’s court in Mombasa reads in part.
“The respondent (Ali Kiba) has made a mockery of their marriage by disrespectfully engaging in public displays of infidelity with various women in total disregard of the petitioner’s feelings,”Khalef says in the court papers.
Amina also demanded for a Sh200,000 monthly maintenance and medical support to their two children.
