Just days after the acrimonious fallout with his wife Gladys Shollei that ended in a divorce, former Standard CEO Sam Shollei has married her new found love Faith Rono in a colorful traditional ceremony attended by family and close friends. Sam Shollei for the second time exchange solemn vows, and this time he says he meant it when he said “until death do us apart”.
Sam Shollei and Faith Rono’s love affair began to blossom in 2012 when Sam Shollei – then the Standard boss – took the petite, innocnet Kalenjin girl then working as a correspondent in Eldoret and promoted her at the head office. Its during this period that the marriage between Shollei and his wife began to hit rock bottom amid allegations of infidelity.
The love between Sam Shollei and Faith would soon grow, rivalling that of Romeo and Juliet as the standard boss abdicated his responsibility back home. Gladys, the Boss was living in anguish, loneliness and starved of conjugal rights. She would soon file for a divorce from her husband, seeking nothing but severance from Sam, who she says had turned to be a monster- a complete opposite of the man she used to know.
Back in Mombasa road, Faith was rolling in new car bought by Sam. First it was a Toyota Belta as she learned how to navigate the jam-packed city, then a Chevrolet and finaly a Ford SUV. Before Shollei was unceremoniously fired in 2017 over his love for liquor and petite skins, he had promoted Faith to the position of group Corporate Affairs Manager on a KSh. 350,000 salary. The former standard boss would soon find a soft landing at Keroche Breweries–talk of a fish thrown in water.
The determination of the divorce case marked the end of a long and winding love story for the Shollei’s . Towards the end of last year, Gladys Boss had ejected Sam out of their matrimonial homes in Uasin Gishu and Kitisiru in Nairobi.
