Angry elders caned a woman publicly like a stray dog after she was busted having sex with her nephew at her matrimonial bedroom on Saturday.
The incident happened at Nyagancha village in Kitutu Chache South, Kisii county.
Area administrator Simon Okeyo said the woman Mary Gesare has been living alone at home because her husband works in Kericho.
“Gesare lured her nephew who is in form 2 into her bedroom where they ended up going to bed to do sex before they were caught by a neighbor who raised alarm,” he said.
The chief said residents responded quickly to the alarm and caught the two naked in bed.
“Residents frog-marched the lovebirds while naked and upon questing the woman’s nephew he revealed that Gesare has been demanding that he sleeps with her,” he noted.
He argued that angry elders paraded the woman in public and caned her as members of the public including young children watched.
“Elders beat her thoroughly because it is an abomination for her to lure the nephew for sex. She was warned against seeing the nephew again,” he noted adding that women should stop having sex with men carelessly.
