Philip Moi is a man in distress after High Court judge, Luka Kimaru, granted him his divorce but ordered him to pay KSH 90 million for the upkeep of his former wife Rosanna Pluda. 30 million from the 90 million will be used to cater for Pluda’s personal needs in the next 10 years. Additionally, Philip is required to find Pluda a house in the posh estates of either, Lavington, Runda, Kileleshwa or Karen. If he fails to do this he will be required to pay Pluda an extra 60 million in the next 90 days. The 30 million meant for upkeep should also be paid within the 90 days. The reason the divorce was granted was cruelty and perjury.
In earlier court hearings, Pluda had asked for KSH 250,000 for her upkeep but was only granted KSH 60,000. To her this was not enough even though her kids were living with Philip at the time. Philip had pleaded that KSH 250,000 was too high for him since he claimed that he was unemployed and was only relying on a pension from the Department of Defence, where he had retired as an Army major.
According to Philip, Pluda lives a life of fantasy, glitz and glamour. Her ostentation is fit for that of a big Hollywood star and her lavish lifestyle is not only extravagant but obscene, according to all Kenyan standards.
