Bedridden woman, 75 seeks divorce from husband who stopped servicing her
The complainant told a court about her husband's negligent behaviour which deprived her of love.
According 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.
“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,”
“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 Sh3,000 as medical support, considered too meagre for her needs.
