One of the world’s richest man, Bill Gates and his wife Melinda, announced that they are working on getting a divorce.
The two have been together for 27 years but no longer believe that they can grow together as a couple.
In a joint statement shared on their personal social media account, the former couple noted their decision was made after “a great deal of thought” and putting a lot of work into their relationship.
The two said they have raised three incredible children and built a foundation that enables people worldwide to lead a healthy and productive life.
They promised to continue working together in the foundation but not as a couple. Bill and Melinda noted the reason was they “no longer believe we can grow together as a couple” in the next phase of their lives.
The two asked for space and privacy as they begin to navigate their new life.
Bill is in the top five list of the richest people in the world, and he is reportedly worth around KSh 14 trillion today.
Not a lot was known about the two having wrangles in their marriage, and the news came as a shock to many.
