Drama as women fight over a man
14 November 2012, 12:15
Drama ensued in a Kisumu court on Monday after two women exchanged bitter words over a man they both alleged was married to them.
In what seemed to be a domestic tussle, one of the women - who had been charged in court for having insulted the other through a text message - blatantly refused to apologize for the mistake despite the Magistrate's direction.
The aggressor argued that she had no intention whatsoever, of letting the man he described as the “love of her life” go.
Helen Awino had appeared before Winam Principal Magistrate Victor Wakhumile where she was charged with improper use of a licensed Telecommunication system Contrary to Section 29(A) of the Kenya Communications Act.
The prosecutor informed the court that on November 4th 2012 at about 1.13 Pm, the accused sent a message through her mobile phone to Spinicah Ondimba using abusive language.
The Magistrate jokingly suggested that if none of them was willing to let go of the man, then both should create a timetable so that they could both spend equal time with the man.
Ironically, the man whom they were fighting over was not present during the court proceeding and so none could establish whether their side of the story was the naked truth.
However, the accused person (Awino) denied the charge and was granted cash bail of KES 10 000 which she promptly paid.
Magistrate Wakhumile set the next hearing for November 27, 2012.
