WOMAN CANED BY ELDERS FOR DOING THIS TO NEIGHBOUR’S HUSBANDS

A middle aged woman identified as Linet Aswani from Vihiga, Kakamega county has painfully narrated what was done to her after it was alleged that she had been sleeping around with her neighbours husband’s.

Speaking to the standard, the woman disclosed that some of her neighbours framed her for being the village “hen” (for lack of better word) to the point that she infected their men who later came to transmit STI’s to them.

On hearing that, Ikuvu village elders had to call her for summoning and on her day of summoning, they did something to her that she’ll live to regret.

While before the elders, she tried to defend herself by explaining that she was not guilty and what she was being accused of were false allegations. However, the elders could hear none of her stories and thus gave her 40 lashes of canes and this impaired her back to the point that she can no longer sleep properly.

The elders later proceeded to give her a Ksh 5,000 fine after the thorough caning. To add salt onto the injury, the elders dragged her to her home where they took some of her belongings including Sh500 and one of her chickens as she was unable to raise the KSh 5,000 they wanted. They ordered her to pay the remaining lot “little by little,” as quoted from the Standard.

The woman is now seeking for justice against her assailants who had no mercy on her but were only after their own financial gains. The Area Assistant Chief Oscar Chunguli confirmed the incident and said that he was kept in the dark all the time but as to him, Justice should prevail.
