75 year old Granny demands for conjugal rights
Do you still need those services now?
Ms Marcella Mukami, 75, told a Kangema court that her husband Peter Kinyugo, 76, stays at his second wife’s house for weeks without visiting her, despite living in the same compound, which had compelled her to file for divorce.
During cross examination by defence lawyer Waiganjo Gichuki, Ms Mukami also accused her husband of not loving her.
“You are accusing your husband of ; do you still need those services now?” Mr Gichuki asked the woman who in response said “a lot”.
However, Ms Mukami was put to task to explain why she did not file the case in 1984 when her husband married the second wife.
“When 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,” she told the court adding that her co-wife would even take her to hospital.
Mr Gichuki also put her to task to explain why she was accusing her husband of adultery yet she was actively involved in the traditional wedding of the second wife.
In response Mukami said: “He (Kinyugo) also forced me to participate in the traditional marriage to his second wife.”
The granny, a retired teacher, further accused her husband of enjoying all the profits from businesses they invested in together with Ms Trizah Mulinge, her co-wife, a statement that was dismissed by the defence, which maintained that Ms Mukami has been receiving her pension and tea bonus.
