An old man in Bungoma county was caught having sex with his daughter-in-law and the elders in the area are have devised a plan to curse him despite his peace offerings.
The elders have refused to cleanse William Makanu, 84, from Wabukhonyi in Kimilili sub-county who 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.
Makanu had refused to open the door for the son leading to villager’s intervention. The daughter-in-law was forced to flee naked as she left the old man’s house after angry villagers stormed the house baying for the old man’s blood, he was, however, saved by police officers who got wind of the happenings arrived on time.
Mr. Makanu’s family says they are now the village laughing stock and are ashamed to see him beg for forgiveness.
