In Kirinyaga West District, a primary school teacher’s life took an unexpected turn when he divorced his first wife for not meeting his educational standards, only to end up marrying a class five school dropout and mother of three.
Shortly after marrying his first wife, the teacher began mistreating her, expressing dissatisfaction with her lack of gainful employment. Despite her parents’ initial plan for her to pursue a secretarial course after completing fourth form, the teacher persuaded her to forgo further education with promises of financial support.
However, the teacher’s true intentions were revealed when he fell in love with another teacher from a different school.
Faced with the dilemma of having two wives, he resorted to taunting and abusing his first wife, eventually leading her to leave with their two-year-old child.
His attempt to marry the second woman failed, as she feared being labeled a home wrecker. Distraught, the teacher sought solace in alcohol, leading to an unexpected encounter with a barmaid.
In a drunken state, the teacher, determined to prove a point, promised to marry the barmaid if she accompanied him home. The barmaid, however, cleverly suggested picking up her clothes and children from her house, to which the intoxicated teacher agreed.
The following morning, the teacher woke up to a shocking reality—his house was filled with the laughter of three children and a woman he barely knew. Attempting to remove her proved futile, and as he left for school, the teacher found himself in a predicament he never anticipated.
Throughout the day, the new woman in his life indulged in miraa chewing and frequented the local pub, turning the once-respected teacher into a laughing stock in the village.
This unexpected twist of fate serves as a cautionary tale about the consequences of abandoning commitments and making impulsive decisions fueled by personal desires and frustrations.
