A Mombasa court has slapped a woman with a three-month jail sentence for assaulting a neighbor who was having an affair with her husband.
Josephine Achieng, 32, was handed the sentence by Principal Magistrate Vincent Adet after she pleaded guilty to charges of assault and causing actual bodily harm.
The court heard that Achieng stormed the house of her neighbor Lucy Maraba and slapped her for allegedly having an illicit affair with her husband.
In her mitigation, Achieng pleaded for leniency, saying she was remorseful and that she developed a heart condition following the ordeal.
"There has been bad blood between me and my childhood friend since 2017 after l discovered that she was having an affair with my husband,” she said.
"On many occasions, we have been quarreling through mobile phone that she should leave my husband alone, but she always answers me arrogantly that 'your husband is for us all' and that l should sit in the house and wait for his money.”
The court discharged her of a second count of causing a disturbance by storming the complainant's house.
The charge read that on June 2019 in Kizingo area in Mombasa, Achieng willfully and unlawfully assaulted Marabi thereby occasioning her bodily harm.
"The accused person is hereby convicted on her own admission to a three-month sentence. She is allowed 14 days to appeal the sentence," the magistrate ruled.
A man Commits adultery When he Sleeps with and Dumbs that Woman. But: If he Sleeps with her, "Has and Holds" her With continued Love and Care, then that's His other Wife (with or without Wedding). Tuache kuPUMBAZWA na Biashara za MaWeddings, MaValentines, na MaKadhalika.😨
@PPPian,I take it that you do not have a relative in the following businesses:
We Luos are good and flamboyant people but if you piss us off, you just might get bitch slapped in real time. Y'all saw what Kidero once did to Shebesh.
@MakOnyango, I hope you said that tongue in cheek.Going by your name,I chance to say that you are not a Muslim.Otherwise you could be excused since Koran allows Muslim men to beat their women.It also pays to note that this Koran directive has been getting alot of negative attention since ,in away it promotes violence,of which Islam is known for anyway,but heavly repulsed by humanrights activists.
Nyako IPhone 4G should organize a mini harambee to raise the alternative,shs 10000 fine for Nyako Achieng,who fought for her Chund.
3 months for a slap, what is Goin on with this dumb judges. She should have set the woman on fire to teach her a lesson.
@Bila Shaka this is actually an aggravated assault and not a simple assault! She should have been charged with a felony of it and thrown in prison for a long time! In other words, the judge just gave her a slap on the wrist!
I’m sure the husband has gone back to the neighbor and is enjoying the forbidden fruit without concern that wifey will know.
Men are Born Polygamous. So don't Waste time Fighting other Women in Your Husband's life. Don't stress About it. Stick with Him; or Pack and Go.😨
*There are MORE Women on Earth THAN men; a Recipe and Resume for POLYGAMY.
Science does not support you allegation that, men are born polygamous.This is purely a social construct,and it can be easily proved if you dare do the research. In short, SCIENCE says that both sexes are not designed to be monogamous.
Studies also show,at least in USA,and the west overall, that women cheat just as much as men if you igmore the 5% disparity...The independence of women has alot to do with this shift.
In Kenya, I would not be surprised if the gap between men,and women cheating has narrowed significantly,as they emulate the American way of life.
Bottom line, is that,in this day and age,cheating opportunities for both man and women have dramatically increased,as society keep challenging,and relaxing moral,and ethical bounderies.
Anecdotally, women are pretty good at hiding their affairs.Remember women are hypergamous by"nature". She will marry'pppian' for his vast resources,and generousity,but indulge in sexcapades with,'Ondiek' because he give her tingles,and butterflies.
If this judge decides to jail this girl/woman, he/she will have participated in putting two people asunder, therefore, judgement. The lady was acting tosave her marriage. The longest she should be jailed for should be 1 day, or 3 month outside jail with probation at the least.
Yeah I would give her one day coz she was lenient to the aggressor who is stealing and sucking her husband's pipe and taunting her, abusing her. A slap isn't painful thing esp from a woman, it's a joke really
I think the judge and the courts are idle...there are worse things happening that need to be jailed. Did not know slapping someone for sleeping with my you know who?? will land someone in jail.... why can't polygamy just be allowed then?? our parents went though it with no problem...nowadays mipango za Kando is the new polygamy incognito...SMH.
Not sure if it is against the law in Kenya to have have an affair,or commonly known as commit adultery.I know it is in Florida,and many other states.Anyway this seems"aminor" issue here...as opposed to 'Willy Smith like' tapping.
Interstingly,the cause of the fracus,the hubby, is probably laughing ,and smiling,as if its ajoke.Luckly for him Achieng unlike" Njeri",the two bulbs would already have been disconnected from their post.
Folks, when it comes to marriage, their is nothing like unconditional love.I believe this is what my friend @ Formerly guest 2 meant when she said that'there is no love in marriage...mmmmbut trade offs'.This case here exemplifies exactly that.Achieng slapped the other woman because she was threatening the suppy of her resource.And I bet the hubby threw it in her face afew time,"I put the roof over your head, I dress you, i feed you,I give you money for the bauty salon,what are you complaining about". Hey, Achieng, wape wape hee vidonge vyao.At 32 Iam sure you still turn heads.
