• In a past interview, Passaris narrated how she caught her husband on a date with another woman
  • Passaris, who had gone to the restaurant for a lunch meeting accidentally bumped into the duo

Esther Passaris, the 53-year-old mother of two, who is the Nairobi Woman Rep once walked into a city restaurant for a lunch meeting with a business associate, only to bump into her husband having lunch with another woman.

The outspoken politician could clearly tell that her hubby and his guest were not having a business meeting. Anyway, she gracefully walked to their table, a smile on her face, mixed emotions in her heart and stretched her hand and said “hello darling”.

“I walked in, I greeted him and went back to my table,” Passaris recalled that day with a chuckle of satisfaction.

They both finished their respective lunch dates and later met at home in the evening. The husband, according to Passaris, walked into their matrimonial home and asked: “What (was that)? Why didn’t you react?”

Passaris looked at him and calmly responded. “I told him: ‘Darling, what did you want me to do? You wanted me to fight with you in public? I had a business lunch there, you had another woman... was it something I needed to fight for? Because a man is not my God, my God is only one. I cannot fight over a man."

Passaris recalled this episode in a tell-all, hour-long interview on KBC during which she stated she has no ill fillings. During the show held in April, she told the host Serfine Achieng’ whenever she travels outside the country, she buys gifts for her co-wife and her stepchildren.

“I have been in situations where the other woman who probably has children with my husband is in a fix, and step forward to help. I tell my husband, ‘Excuse me, can you sort this out, sort out her maintenance, sort out what she need’,” Passaris confessed.

In 2007, the businesswoman-cum-politician who is part Kenyan, part Greek and part Dutch, stunned the late Maasai political supremo William ole Ntimama with her beauty, to an extent that Ntimama branded her Mama Supuu at a campaign rally for the Embakasi parliamentary seat.

“When I travel with my husband, I buy presents for the other women’s children, because we are in this situation already. We are many. I know love is emotive. You know what? My first husband is God. I am not going to fight over this man to the point that I destroy other women or their children. I think every woman should be like that,” she said on national television.

She went on: “Ashazaa huko nje, are you going to let the other women’s children suffer? I fight for all women; I fight for all children, okay? Even if it is my husband with another woman out there! At the end of the day, ni mtoto wa bwanangu, ni ndugu ya watoto wangu.”
