Laiwola is a wealthy, 48-year-old trained Naija barrister. Laiwola has worked with former United Kingdom Prime Minister Tony Blair and US President Barack Obama on Power Energy Africa.

Even though Laiwola is a staunch Muslim, Khamati, in an interview with The Nairobian, revealed that he doesn’t plan on marrying another wife.

“He is not interested in marrying other women,” she said, adding that it is not a must for her to convert to Islam.

The couple, who met at a Lebanese restaurant in Nairobi took a celibacy vow after they started going out.

“He asked me if we could start courtship. By that I mean no sexual engagement before marriage. I said yes! It is hard but we still find creative ways to spend time and knowing each other,” said Yvonne.

Domestic abuse

Khamati’s marriage to Laiwola is her second after parting ways with her first husband after she accused him of domestic violence.

“He was a violent man and I thank Ida Odinga and Education CS Amina Mohamed who got me out of that relationship,” she said of the marriage that was annulled in court.

Khamati has a daughter, Zalika Khamati from her first marriage.
