A 25 year old man in Sango village Bungoma County abandoned his wife and children to inherit his 65 year old grandmother after the death of his grandfather.
Wafula James, a father of five children moved into his grandmother’s house to start a new marriage life.
The incident made village elders to reserve their comments. When the chairman of the clan was informed of the case, he only laughed and kept quiet. His mother did not take the matter lightly, as she threatened to undress. But for Wafula’s wife, she could not hold back her tears.
He has become the talk in the village. For instance, you would listen to people talk about him at market places, funerals, among other social settings in the location.
Wafula seems interested in odds of society. Generally, he is a man possessing a high affinity for widows. He knows all widows by name in the whole location. Sometimes last year, he is reported to have spent most of the time with prostitutes of Bukembe market.
Last week Tuesday, he took a cock to a very prominent ‘mama pima’ of Bukembe market after acquiring it forcefully from home after beating the wife. He was foolish enough since he could not discover that ‘his’ mama pima has men in series.
The woman was clever; she quickly invited another man to feast on the cock that was brought by wafula. When wafula demanded for the delicious stew, he was ordered to wait from outside the house. He followed instructions as given by Mama Pima, up to midnight he was still waiting. He knocked the door several times but the door was not opened for him since the woman was serving another client.
Wafula braved the cold throughout the night at the door as the other two were having fun, laughing and chatting inside. He only tasted the smell of the food as the whole of it was finished, not even a bone was spared for him.
Neighbors could not understand what pinned him at the door for the whole night with the presence of another man in the house. “I saw him sleeping with hands between his legs at the door at midnight”, said a neighbor.
At 6am is when he decided to go back home to his grandmother, though bitter, but there was nothing he could do. That was the time he was welcomed and consoled warmly by his lovely grandmother.
