Man drags wife to County offices to protest against her constantly beating him
The woman said the only solution was to discipline him herself
According to the Daily Monitor, Peter Oloko, who sustained minor injuries on his face, accused his wife Loyce Ayiko before the Sub County Community Development Officer for beating him more often even when he remorsefully asks for forgiveness from her.
“I came back home late at night, when I asked my wife to serve me food, she wrestled me down, I staggered to find some stamina since I was drunk in order to ask forgiveness from her, but instead she hauled a knife at me,” Mr Oloko reported to the Sub County authorities.
The father of six said that although as a husband he has a weakness of drinking, he has never been harsh to his wife not even for a single day.
“I have been reserving my woes until this time when I feel I cannot endure this torture anymore,” Oloko said.
Oloko said that he reached out to the brother in-law seeking for any possible help but nothing changed.
“I am today here at the office of the community development officer for the third day, perhaps he can help me find a solution to my errant wife,” he said.
When asked, Ms Ayiko, told this reporter that she only reigns in to discipline her husband whenever he comes back home late and drunk.
“He leaves home early for drinking, he doesn’t accompany me to the garden, yet he wants to eat,” she said, adding that as a wife, she needs the company of the husband in the night but, Oloko comes back too drunk and fatigued to do anything.
Ms Ayiko said that despite her continued efforts to lure her husband to church such that he can perhaps stop over-drinking, Oloko has refused.
“,” she vowed.
