BY GEORGE AMOLO IN SIAYA COUNTY.
A 33-year-old man from Maranda in Bondo Sub-County, Siaya County has been arrested after he was allegedly caught in the act with a neighbour’s wife.
The suspect, Dan, who is popularly known by his alias name, Ja’Maasai, was caught engaging in sexual intercourse with Maurice Omondi’s wife at Nyapiedho trading centre at 3am Wednesday, November 22.
According to Maranda Divisional AP commandant, Inspector Boaz Odero, Omondi, who works as a security guard at the trading center, had gone back to the house at 3am Wednesday, when he found Ja’Massai having sex with his wife on their matrimonial bed.
The police boss said an irked Omondi descended on the suspect with kicks and blows.
During the fray, Ja’Maasai brandished a sword with the intention of attacking the woman’s husband.
Ja’Maasai was, however, overpowered by Omondi, who picked a panga and hacked him (Ja’Maasai) before escaping to a nearby bush.
Inspector Odero said Ja’Maasai, who checked himself into Bondo Sub-County Hospital for emergency treatment, was arrested on Wednesday morning, when he was headed home from the health facility.
The woman’s husband, Omondi, remains at large, police say.
Ja’Maasai remains locked up at Bondo Police Station as investigations into the matter continue.
The whereabouts of the woman at the center of the love triangle remains unknown.
