Elderly man fined for attempting to sleep with his son’s wife
An elderly man in Givogi, Vihiga County has been fined by the council of elders for allegedly tempting to have a sexual relationship with his daughter in law and his son sent a warning letter.
The widower, identified as Oriedo, 60, sneaked into his son’s bedroom and fondled his daughter-in-law while his son was away for work in Nairobi.
According to the sons wife – Kabeyi – Oriedo had apparently formed a habit of enjoying dinner at his son’s house where she was mostly by herself with their two-year-old son, with the excuse that he needed to check on his grandson and watch TV.
It is reported that when she told her husband of his father’s unbecoming visits, the man ignored and even warned her of speaking ill of his “dear father, a religious and respectable man”.
When narrating the ordeal to the council of elders who resolved the matter, Kabeyi said that on that particular day, she left Oriedo watching TV in the sitting room after dinner.
She was, however, later shocked to find that her father in law had reportedly sneaked into her bedroom and was touching her suggestively and begging her to sleep with him.
Her screams attracted neighbors who almost descended on the man thinking he was a robber.
Residents reported the randy man to the area chief, who decided to have the matter handled by an elder’s baraza.
In his defence, Oriedo claimed that he visits Kabeyi out of parental concern but on the material day he was “tempted by the devil”.
Besides the shame and embarrassment, the accused was also ordered to pay Sh3000 and two cockerels as fine to the council for his inappropriate actions.
The elders also sent Kabeyi’s husband a memo warning him against leaving his young wife in the village by herself.
