Western Kenya is in the news again and it’s a familiar topic.
A woman in Bungoma found herself in trouble with her husband for using maize flour without consent.
Apparently, the man from Nalondo village, Kabuchai constituency, has been managing food matters in the house. It is reported that he has been rationing food for his wife, something that threatens their 5 year marriage.
Maize flour has been of particular interest to him and he has been monitoring the levels closely.
Reportedly, a neighbor visited and the wife being a good host decided to cook lunch. It was hell when the husband returned in the evening only to find the ‘ugali-level’ had gone down. A physical fight ensued after a heated argument.
The wife has since left.
