Two men from Lurambi, Kakamega have shocked residents after signing an agreement to swap their wives following cheating allegations amongest themselves.Juma on her part said she had no problem living with Anjeche, whose wife her husband has been cohabiting with for many years.
Currently, Juma is staying with Anjeche at his Shamala village home in Lurambi. Anjeche willingly took in her as revenge to his unfaithful wife Dorine, 22.
26 -year-old Patrick Mangala and 44 -year-old Ernest Anjeche arrived to this decision after Mangala was discovered to be seeing Anjenche’s wife. The two men agreed to exchange the wives together with the kids and take care of them till they become of age.
This agreement has however turned sour just three months after the swap.Mangala, a boda boda rider, now has disregarded the agreement and wants his 21- year-old wife Susan back saying he still regards her as his wife.
Meanwhile Susan appears very comfortable at her new home with her husband and isn’t considering going back to Mangala. According to her, Anjenche is taking good care of her, her children and isn’t unfaithful or violent. Anjenche, who works as a night guard, wants his former, wife 22- year-old Dorine, to continue staying with Mangala since they started it all.
Susan has threatened to leave with her kids following several alleged threats from her former husband.
The distance between the two homes is barely one kilometer.
The father of Mangala, Mzee Peter Mangala, 66, said it was wrong for the two men to enter into such a ridiculous agreement. “My son and Anjeche come from the same village and they can easily kill each other over that pact,” he said.
He regrets that parties involved kept him in the dark about the matter until he came to learn of it when his son was arrested after attacking Anjeche at his home.
Mzee Mangala said he had never witnessed such an arrangement between men since he was born. “It is very strange and something must be done to reconcile the two men or else something bad could happen to either of them as a result of the dispute they are embroiled in.”
Juma said she has been contemplating running away with her two children following increasing death threats on them by Mangala.
