to reports, Kinyugo prefers to stay with his second wife ignoring the
bedridden complainant who also accused the defendant of adultery despite
participating in the traditional marriage that welcomed a union between
him and an unnamed woman.
“You are accusing your husband of failing to provide services to you; do you still need those services now?” Waiganjo Gichuki a lawyer to the defendant asked Mukami.
my husband married my co-wife we lived happily under one roof, we had
allocated duties to cook and household chores, but it is because my
husband is such a clever man that I did not raise an objection,”
“He (Kinyugo) also forced me to participate in the traditional marriage to his second wife,” Mukami told the court.
Emphasizing the 75-year-old’s dissatisfaction, Margaret Nyang’ati,
her lawyer expressed that the complainant receives between Sh2,000 and
