A middle-aged man in Navakholo, Kakamega County has been arrested by Navakholo police officers for allegedly beating his wife, for denying him conjugal rights.
It was reported that Issa Andalo attacked Afusa Namiswa using a blunt object injuring her seriously, after she was suspected of having an external love affair.
The two who have sired together eight children have had unending wrangles with the wife suspected of having an external marital love affair with a sanitation attendant in one of the private hospitals in town.
The affair was unraveled by one of the hospital’s nurses after the two were caught in the act pants down at the hospital.
“She revealed to me that she has been constantly seeing my wife with the health worker, she was suspecting their whereabouts after catching them doing things that according to her was not good.” reported Andalo.
The couple have been living in two separate houses after their endless wrangles especially after the father to wife was admitted to the hospital where the health worker was working.
In his defense before the village elders, the woman denied his involvement in the act saying their relationship was a normal one for she wanted to know about her father’s wellbeing who had been hospitalized after undergoing a surgery.
“We have never engaged in any romance. My effort to find out the condition of my father keeps them thinking that probably I have got a second thought.” She said.
However, the area residents have been warned against taking the law into their own hands urging them to get relevant advice from elders including religious leaders when they face such persecution.
