Patriarchy is not just the men who socially subjugate women. Patriarchal men feel that they are entitled to the personal space and body of a woman; they feel that they’ own’ a woman as one would own property.
So when we hear the news of a husband beating up his wife after finding out she was having an affair, it’s not entirely shocking.
But in a disturbing incident, a man in Kitui southern Kenyan county tried to seal the ge*itals of his wife with superglue after finding out she was having an affair with at least four other men, reports Mirror UK.
Dennis Mumo found out about the suspected affairs of his wife via her social media messages according to sources. The wife reportedly engaged with other men while the husband was on business away.
Mumo sealed his wife’s va*ina with superglue before his business trip to Rwanda, to stop her from having intercourse with other men.
The news shocked people around and reportedly Mumo was arrested. He admitted to the police the incident and justified it by saying he did it to save his marriage.
He said he had evidence of multiple men having affairs with his wife. He also claimed to have found his wife’s n*de photo which was sent to one man with the message,’ Fireworks will be out next week!’
Mumo is expected to appear in court soon where he may be charged with domestic abuse according to the article.
In the meantime, his wife will face adultery charges, too.
