Man squanders KES 150,000 tea bonus money on prostitutes

18 November 2014, 22:57

Kericho - A fifty eight year old man over the weekend found himself in trouble after he squandered his tea bonus payment with alcohol and a twilight girl.

Trouble started when the man, identified as Richard Korir reached his home only to be confronted by the wife and the children who were demanding for money to pay school fees and buy foodstuff.

When asked where the money was, the man stared at his wife, his face full of guilt and regret. It was then that the wife started yelling all manner of insults towards him, the presence of children notwithstanding.

“You have been drinking since Friday and yet you were aware that there was no food at home…now that you have wasted the money with prostitutes, you will have to leave this house before you infect me with HIV virus”, yelled the woman

The man was forced to eat a humble pie and leave the compound .It was then that he confessed that he met the lady at a social joint in Litein town and after taking drinks, they decided to go and sleep together in a nearby lodging.

“I met the lady at a bar in Litein town and after taking several bottles of beer, we decided to go and sleep together in a lodging but I cannot recall what happened since then…I just found myself laying outside the lodging without any belongings”, lamented Richard

The man said he lost KES 150,000, a wrist watch valued at 10,000 shillings, a wallet and a Samsung Galaxy phone.

According to a waitress at the social joint in town, Richard failed to pay the lady the fee they had agreed and the lady might have spiked his drinks out of vengeance.

“I heard them negotiating the price for a night out and it seems they did reach an agreement but I think the man change tact while at the lodging and that is when the lady spiked his drink before eloping with the money and other valuables”, said the lady who did not want to be named for fear of reprisals from the management as she is not authorized to speak to the press.
