Love does not discriminate between the rich, the poor, the beautiful or the ugly. It happens in ways not even the gods can explain. When not very long ago the first wife of Chief Cletus Ibeto, the Chairman of Ibeto Group, left him without saying good bye, the great entrepreneur was thrown into deep mourning and he became very skeptical about women.
