BY CALISTUS MUGA IN BUSIA COUNTY.
A 31-year-old woman from Rukala Village in Budalangi, Busia County is living in fear after her in-laws allegedly assaulted and threw her out of her matrimonial home on claims that she keeps demons.
Agnes Akinyi claims her in-laws beat her up in front of her husband and area assistant chief, John Odino, after a local pastor told them that she has been engaging in witchcraft.
The mother-of-five says her attempts to return to her matrimonial to pick her children have been thwarted after her in-laws beat up security agents, who had accompanied her to her husband’s place.
Assistant chief John Odino declined to comment on the matter.
It remains unclear what prompted the said-pastor to accuse Akinyi of demon-keeping.
“I urge the government to come to my rescue. I fear they [in-laws] would kill me if they discover where I am staying,” said Akinyi.
