An old man in Bungoma county who was found in bed with his daughter-in-law is to be cursed by elders. The elders have refused to cleanse him. William Makanu, 84, from Wabukhonyi in Kimilili subcounty was caught in a sex act with his son’s wife.
The daughter-in-law claimed that the old man had told her it was a blessing to have sex with him since the husband was born out of wedlock. “According to our culture that is wrong and as elders, we will have to look for a sheep to make an offering so as to cleanse him and the daughter-in-law,” said Jared Barasa, one of the elders.
Makhanu had refused to open the door for the son leading to villager’s intervention. The daughter-in-law was forced to flee as he left Makhanu naked in the house. The family was ashamed to see him beg for forgiveness. Police officers who got wind of the happenings arrived on time and saved Makhanu from angry villages who were baying for his blood.
