(Seychelles News Agency) - The Seychelles Vice President Danny Faure and his wife Jeanine divorced on Monday, State House said.
Their divorce was pronounced by the Supreme Court earlier on Monday, a State House statement said.
“They have asked that their privacy and that of their children be respected,” the statement said.
Vice President Faure and Jeannine Faure, whose maiden name is De Comarmond have four children.
The news comes less than a week before Faure is scheduled to be sworn in as Seychelles’ new President on Sunday.
He is taking over the presidency after President James Michel announced his resignation on September 27.
Faure, 54, has been the island nation’s Vice President since 2010.
