Boda boda rider begs to get back wife traded in for a bottle of soda


Residents of Kakamega Town were treated to a shocking and rare spectacle a few days to Christmas when a boda boda operator in the area exchanged his wife for a bottle of soda.

The buyer would later seal the deal by giving the woman’s husband Ksh 500.

“Just a day or two to Christmas, this man’s wife came to where we work, and I was mesmerized by her beauty. I asked if he could give her to me, and he said yes, but on condition that I pay him Ksh 500.”

“That evening at around 9:00pm, he phoned and enquired my whereabouts. He asked me to head to where he was and that his wife was with him. When I reached where they were, I held the woman’s arm and her husband asked for the payment (Ksh 500). I gave him the money and he handed the woman to me,” the buyer exclusively told eDaily.

“For three days now, the man has cried, begging I return his wife. I thought deep about it and told him: ‘I don’t think that will be easy, unless you talk to me nicely I won’t do you the favour’.”

“However, today (January 4), I decided to return his wife to him. What I want from him is the bottle of soda that he drank in exchange for the wife. I just wanted to teach him a lesson – that you should never joke about giving your wife to another man. He will take her and go with her for good. I have told him never to try that again,” added the buyer.

The wife-seller’s colleagues were surprised by the man’s naïve decision.

“Exchanging wives during this festive season is wrong. A man should stay with his wife and celebrate the holidays together,” said a boda boda operator.

Another operator suspected the wife-seller did so because he could not “feed her on Christmas”.

“The guy who exchanged his wife for a bottle of soda was unable to feed her during the festive season. So, when he got an offer to exchange his wife for a bottle of soda, he warmly accepted.”

The man’s wife has been reunited with her partner.
