Kakamega County: A man from Lwanda village, Moi’s Bridge sub location, Likuyani Sub County has astounded villagers after he declined to clear a debt of Sh. 900 and instead offered his wife.
According to Patrick Andabwa, he assisted the man bake bricks but he has declined to pay back but offered him his wife instead.
“Though I am single, have decided to take in the woman and have no apologies to make”, said the 22 year old man.
The woman, Jones Kevogo said she arrived at the decision after realizing that the former husband Francis Kevogo had developed a habit of engaging employees and declined to pay them claiming they had an affair with her.
“This was not the first attempt”, she said adding that the man had used the method to avoid paying up his debtors several times.
Jones (43) and mother of five said she had decided to quit after suffering embarrassment caused by the husband for the last 20 years.
“I am optimistic my new marriage will work beside our age differences”, she said pointing out that her previous marriage had been abusive.
She vowed never to recant her actions even if the new marriage collapsed again noting that her children were free to relate to their father if they so wished.
Efforts to get comments from Mr. Francis Kevogo the former husband were futile as he was not at home and could not be traced on phone.
