Ogwang was recalled from USA in 2017 following a brawl with his former wife, Miriam Otengo. Subsequently, Ogwang filed for divorce on December 09, 2019 citing verbal assault from the respondent (Otengo) and involvement in extra-marital affairs. Mid this year, his divorce petition was granted, giving him the lee way to marry Ranny.
