Two women who swapped husbands ordered to live with their biological children

Published

Two Kenyan women, Immaculate Auma and Lilian Weta, who recently swapped husbands have been ordered to stay with their biological children in their new marriages.

This is after the couples signed a joint parenting agreement that was witnessed by the Commissioner of their County, Jacob Narengo and Children Services Director Esther Wasige in Busia County, Kenya.

Lilian Weta, a 28-year-old woman, who is a mother of three and 29-year-old Immaculate Auma, a mother of two, became online sensations after it emerged that the two had traded husbands in an effort to find ‘happiness’.

This occurred after Lilian’s husband Kevine Barasa married Immaculate Auma as his second wife yet she was married by another man, Christopher Bwire, who she deserted. Hurt by her husband’s decision, Lilian decided to go for Christopher, Immaculate’s man, and convinced him to marry her, which he agreed to.

Terming the incident unnatural, Wasige said the children were still young and thus could not be allowed to live with someone not their biological mother.

Officers from the Department of Children will be making periodic visits to the couples’ homes to find out how the children are faring on.

Kevine Barasa was told to ensure Immaculate Auma and Christopher Bwire’s two children had all basic needs. Mr Bwire was also asked to provide for the three children Mr Barasa had with Lilian Weta before their marriage went south.

“The children are below 10 years, so we have agreed that the mothers should stay with them until they are adults,” said Wasige.

“Let them stay the way they want because they are adults, but biological fathers of the children must ensure the children go to school, are clothed and whenever they are sick must get medication,” she added.

Wasige said the documents they signed were legally binding.

“If any party disobeys the agreement we shall sue them for neglecting their children. Therefore, we shall ensure that the agreement is adhered to,” she said.

Mr Narengo urged the public to take marriage seriously. He said the agreement the couples signed was aimed at protecting the children.

“We should ensure that the rights of the children are protected until they are adults. The agreement will be reviewed whenever the need arises,” he said.

He warned the couple that would abuse the rights of the minors would be arrested and prosecuted.

Mali protests resume as thousands call for president’s resignation

Published

Thousands of people took to the streets of Mali’s rainy capital Bamako on Tuesday renewing calls for President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita to step down despite international mediation efforts to resolve a political crisis.

Protests led by an opposition coalition called M5-RFP have raged since June, caused by contested local elections and perceived government corruption and incompetence.

Tensions escalated in July when police shot dead at least 11 demonstrators.

Regional powers are worried that prolonged unrest could derail the fight against Islamist extremists in the region, many of whom are centred in Mali. Their presence has rendered large areas of the centre and north of Mali ungovernable.

Keita had hoped that concessions to opponents and recommendations from a mediating delegation of regional leaders would help stem the tide of disaffection.

But the majority of protestors appeared unmoved as they filed into Bamako’s heaving Independence Square in their thousands on Tuesday, shouting “Keita step down” and “listen to your people”.

“M5-Rfp demands purely and simply the resignation of Ibrahim Boubacar Keita and his regime to allow for a democratic transition,” prominent M5-RFP member Ibrahim Maiga told the cheering crowd.
