Man fined KES 10m for failing to have sex with wife

30 August 2016, 13:39

Nairobi - A Kenyan man has been fined KES 10 million for tricking his wife into a sexless marriage.

The High Court in the Coastal City of Mombasa made the ruling that will see the businessman pay a fine of KES 10 Million for tricking his wife into a sexless marriage.

In a report on The Standard, Presiding judge, Justice Maureen Odero found that Mr Jitesh Patel had lured his wife Sonia into a marriage without declaring that he was impotent. The marriage took place in India but the couple soon after moved to Kenya where they settled in the up-market suburb of Nyali.

In court records, Sonia said that the first ten years of their marriage were peaceful despite the fact that his husband was unable to provide conjugal rights which meant that they could not have a child.

The marriage apparently took a turn for the worse in 2006 after Patel’s parents passed on. According to Sonia, Patel became cruel and belligerent pushing her to the path of divorce despite the fact that breaking up from marriage is a taboo in Indian culture.

Just recently, the Daily Mail reported that a Kenyan man chopped off his wife's hands for failing to conceive even though he himself was impotent.

The incident sparked public outrage after the man in Eastern Kenya disabled his wife using the Machete and was saved from a lynching by Police officers.

According to Kenyan law, lack of conjugal rights in marriage can and may lead to divorce or a lengthy fine if proved to be the case.
