“We came to a conclusion to end our marriage a long while ago and separated. We sincerely request everyone to honour our wishes for privacy for us and our children. Signed Kate and Phil,” the joint statement read.


Kate added; “Was never a secret, we just kept it private. To all our dear fans, Asanteni sana for the support over the years,”.

Phillip Karanja also joined the conversation to affirm that indeed they have gone their separate ways and people should now allow them to proceed with their lives separately.

“Hii ni Mmabo ya Watu wawili, but allow us to add you to the group char kidogo, so we can proceed with our lives bila story mob,” Phil said.


He added that they remain friends; “Kate and I remain as friends, Co-parenting and business partners,”.

The lovebirds walked down the aisle at Windsor Golf Hotel and Country Club in November 2017.

The couple has a daughter together and they also raise a son from Kate's previous relationship.
