The couple checked into Sunshine Upperhill Hotel in Kericho at 4 pm and left shortly to visit their in-laws.

But when they returned at around 9.30 pm, the hotel blocked them from accessing their room.

Ms Waruguru is the second wife of Kiprotich Kiget, a Nanyuki- based lawyer. She claims that the rule is discriminatory and embarrassed her as a leader.

The hotel management however maintains that there is a strict rule for partners who are not married to sleep in separate rooms and the married folk are required to produce a marriage certificate to prove the same.

Different leaders tried to reach the management to intervene but the management did not give in. The couple was forced to find accommodation elsewhere.
