Actress Nyaboke Moraa has denied any involvement in the death of her baby daddy and celebrated rugby coach Benjamin Ayimba.
Speaking in a recent interview, the actress made the statement while responding to claims that she was allegedly barred from attending Ayimba’s burial ceremony.
“I couldn’t even mourn him. Some people were saying I was the one who killed him. The police were told I was coming to cause chaos, yet there was no money to fight for,” she said.
Moraa also stated that Ayimba’s sisters-in-law had hired over 30 police officers to block her from attending the burial ceremony on grounds that she would cause chaos.
“There were 30 policemen at the compound (during the burial). They asked me what I was doing there. I said I had brought my kids to say bye to their dad. You know my kids had kept on asking me if we will be going to church to see daddy. After push and shove at the gate, the cops allowed us in,” she stated.
She added that even though she was allowed to attend the burial, she was barred from the graveside.
“I was barred from the graveside during the burial. We wanted to take photos at the grave after he’d been laid to rest but my kids were initially barred. Ayimba’s sister called my kids chokoras (street children) and ‘mistakes’. She abused me so much. But I have forgiven her,” she said.
Moraa also opened up on her relationship with Ayimba disclosing that she met him when she had just divorced her husband of seven years.
The two fell in love and lived together until 2018 when they went separate ways.
“I met Ayimba when I’d just gone through a divorce. He made advances and I initially refused. I thought I was his second wife but it turned out I was wife number three
“He has about ten children. Our love was okay but we had several challenges and after eight years, around 2018, we went separate ways,” she said.
