Drama ensued at Birikani village in Voi, Taita Taveta county after a man was caught by his wife having a passionate encounter with another man on their matrimonial bed. The incident left villagers in shock as the two men were rescued by members of community policing from a mob baying for their blood. Joyce Bigva said she had left her husband at home while she escorted her relatives who had visited.
The husband had allegedly feigned a headache and was left at home to rest. All hell broke loose when she returned home only to find the door locked from inside, which, she says, was strange as they rarely lock the door at daytime. The husband refused to open the door and ordered her to go away. Bigva sought help from her sister-in-law to have her husband open the door and after knocking in vain, the two used force to open one window of the one-roomed house, attracting neighbours.
They were met by a sight of the stark-naked husband in bed with another man. “I saw my husband cuddling another naked man on our bed and I almost passed out,” said Bigva. She has been married to the man since 2009 and a have a 10-month old child. She said she has never quarrelled with her husband, wondering what pushed him into the trend.
“I can accept it if he was cheating on me with another woman but with a man?” posed Bigva. Voi police boss Joshua Lutukai said they are holding the two men and investigations had been launched into the matter. “We are looking into the allegations. We are waiting for a medical report to confirm whether the two were engaging in sodomy. Then we will charge them,” he said.
