Kakamega: Lurambi Man Forced To Take Pastor’s Wife After Being Ambushed At Pastor’s Home
A 37-year-old man was forced to sign an agreement taking responsibility over a pastor’s wife after villagers in Lurambi’s Murumba village in Kakamega ambushed the two at the preacher’s house.
Pastor Harrison Olumbe is said to have been notified of the unusual night presence of the man in his house prompting a response by villagers.
“I intervened to rescue him from the villagers who were beating him up. It is unacceptable in our tradition to share another man’s wife,” Olumbe, a preacher with the Africa Divine Church, said on Tuesday.
Olumbe said he opted to cede claim over the woman to the man whom he said was known to the family.
“He is not a stranger to me,” Olumbe, who cut short his trip to attended a funeral in the neighboring village, said.
The man was forced to sign a written commitment taking the woman as his wife before the two left the preacher’s home on a motorcycle.
