Bungoma: Woman Bites Father-In-Law’s Private Parts

Police in Bungoma are looking into an incident in which a woman allegedly bit her father-in-law’s private parts during an argument.

In the bizarre incident that has baffled the Bukusu community, 75-year-old Vincent Simiyu Barasa of Kimaeti, Bumula Constituency, has been left nursing his wounds following the brutal bite.

According to witnesses, the suspect, Everline Okelo, who is his son’s second wife, was enraged by her father-in-law’s decision to defend her co-wife.

Barasa said that he was having his dinner at around 4 pm when he heard a commotion in his son Godfrey Wekesa’s house. One of his grandchildren informed him that his daughter-in-law was fighting with another lady from a nearby market.

He rushed to the scene to try to settle the dispute, but was met with opposition and decided to leave without further effort.

The lady followed him and hit him with a stone as soon as he turned back. He passed out, and the lady sat on him, biting his chest.

The old man’s attempts to push her away were futile as the lady moved back and bit his private parts.

“As I was going back, it seems the lady was angry so she threw a stone at me and struck the backside of my head. She then proceeded to bite my manhood,” he explained.

Following the incident, angry residents who arrived at the scene gave the lady and her husband a thorough beating before taking the elderly man for treatment.

According to some locals, the woman should face cultural punishment since Bukusu traditions forbid physical interactions between in-laws.

A manhunt for the woman is currently ongoing.
