In other news, a Kenyan woman, identified as Josephine Achary Akongo, recently recounted how her ex-husband’s parents sent her packing for not bearing children.
Josephine, who hails from Ahero Kisumu County, Nyando sub-county, narrated her ordeal in an interview with Standard Media.
According to her, she was kicked out of the house due to her inability to conceive for her husband, and he proceeded to marry a second wife in 2014. Unfortunately, his second wife has also been unable to have children since they got married nine years ago.
Josephine further revealed that she had a child while still in school and before marrying her ex-husband.
“I didn’t find it easy after realizing that I was pregnant. It was funny because some visitors came to our place to bring dowry for my cousin, and as girls, we were invited to entertain them. That’s how I got involved with a guy for just one night, and that’s how I conceived. Unfortunately, the guy disappeared afterward,” she said.
“I learned in day school, but I spent most of my time outside the school due to frequent illness. Eventually, my mother discovered what was happening and she was constantly reminding me of how I had wasted her hard-earned money.
“In school, students disapproved of me and often laughed at me. During that time, getting pregnant was considered taboo. However, despite being in Form Four, I persevered and managed to sit my national exams, though I didn’t perform as well as expected. It was far from an easy experience,”
“I met my first husband in our estate in Kisumu, and we began courting. However, our courtship didn’t last for even a year before we started cohabiting. I went to visit him at his workplace in Eldoret, at Keiyo South Constituency, and I never returned home because he told me we were now living as husband and wife. I informed my family, and he informed his, and we started our life together as a couple,”
