A woman was arrested after beating her husband for marrying a second wife and setting their matrimonial home on fire
After allegedly attacking her husband and setting fire to their home, a 43-year-old woman was arrested in Navakholio (Kakamega County, Kenya) on Saturday, January 28th, 2023.
Navakholo OCPD Richard Omanga said Florence Karakacha was arrested for giving her husband identified as Bramwel Lubanga a thorough beating for reportedly marrying a second wife.
Lubanga reportedly lost a part of his lip after his wife bit it off during the feud. The woman allegedly torched the house before heading to the nearest police station. At the station, the woman alleged that her husband had attacked her first.
Officers from the station hurriedly arrested the man and booked him at the station. However, upon inquiry from neighbors and family members, the officers discovered that the woman had fought the man after he had married a second wife upon learning that she was allegedly having an affair with his brother.
The officers arrested the woman and booked her into custody pending arraignment in court.
