Haji Kigongo is a victim of his own stubbornness and stinginess. First of all, he relied on the advice of an in house, amateurish lawyer who could hardly come to grips with the intricacies of the case at hand, and whose relationship with his client is more of a dependence than anything else, and who, accordingly, could not look the man in the face and tell him the truth.
But even in the absence of this loophole, the man is so stingy that Olivia stood a better chance of plucking a hair from his pubic zone than squeezing a monetary settlement out of him. I don’t even think that there is a single person, be it the President or any reputed lawyer, that could convince him to part with even a small fraction of his wealth as settlement. Such is his stinginess that he can’t contemplate parting with even a small amount for anyone else on earth other than himself.
He may not have officially married the woman, but twenty years of cohabitation with the same person, whom you even held out to the general public as your wife, whose family knew you as her husband, who probably mothered some kids for you, and who was admittedly the driving force behind your businesses, speaks volumes of the existence a marriage of some form.
The Haji may curse and kick for all he cares, but, tragically, he’s losing a huge chunk of his wealth to his clearly embittered & estranged wife. But not only that, he’s losing respect and influence in society. I hope he doesn’t lose his life in the process.
