Kisii Man Beats Wife, Leaving Her Seeking Help, Out of Anger Provoked by Chelsea Drawing with Arsenal
In the Reconciliation Unit during the famous patanish show, Lawrence Komenda (24) from Kisii sent a message seeking reconciliation with his wife, Yvonne Kemunto (20), with whom he had a falling out about two weeks ago following a domestic dispute.
Lawrence stated that even though they still live together, there is no peace in their home as they don’t communicate at all.
“We used to get along well since we got married. It was in the ninth month that we started having fights; she suspected I had other plans. The other day, she saw me talking to girls from our church, but it’s because I’m a member of the choir,” Lawrence explained.
He continued, “During the Chelsea and Arsenal match, I went to watch. When I returned home, she checked my phone again, and I got angry and hit her. Now, she stays inside the house, and we don’t talk. She cooks, but if she goes to the kitchen, she just sings gospel songs. She only responds in songs.”
Lawrence expressed his concern about his wife packing her bags and singing gospel songs all night, indicating that she might want to leave. He clarified that he didn’t have an affair; she just suspected him wrongly.
“I was with her, but we broke up a while ago,” he said.
Furthermore, he explained that the night he hit his wife was due to his anger over Chelsea drawing with Arsenal. “The anger from Chelsea drawing with Arsenal made me hit her. She doesn’t speak; she just sings songs at home. She mixes songs too. If I talk to her, she doesn’t respond. She cooks well, but she doesn’t eat what she prepares,” he said.
When Kemunto was called, she sounded very angry and clearly indicated her willingness to leave her husband. “Tell him to keep offending me; I don’t want his apologies. Let him apologize to God. Even if he doesn’t come home today, let him sleep outside. Tell him to stay wherever he wants to. I don’t want him to disrespect me in front of others,” Kemunto said.
She continued, “Last night, he told me to leave and bring another girl home. I woke up, got into the car, and left. He wants to bring in another girl. I am in Mai Mahiu now. Tell him I cooked for him, and I’ve left it at home.”
Lawrence defended himself, saying, “It was just anger. Come back; let’s live together. I love you. I never hide my phone from you.”
Kemunto asked her husband to control his temper if they were to stay together. Lawrence agreed to control his anger and reassured his wife of his deep love for her. “I’m even a choir member, the pastor knows me. I love you; I will control my anger,” Lawrence said.
