The two had returned from evening service when the woman, who is the youth leader in the church, invited the pastor to her house for a cup of tea. The ‘cup of tea’ extended into the late hours of the night and since the husband is not at home but works in a nearby town, the married pastor was tempted to spend the night.
Unknown to the love birds, however, word had already reached the husband that his home in Kakamega had been turned into a ‘brothel’.
The husband rushed home that night, raging with fury and ready to devour whomever he found in his house. He arrived at around 11pm and noted that the front door was locked. Luckily, he had spare keys for the back door.
As he was getting into the house, the two sensed danger and the preacher ran out through the front door and sprinted to his house, which is in the neighbourhood, half naked. The angry man did not give up. He chased the pastor into his house and fished him out with the help of others who had had been attracted by the commotion.
“When we caught him, he couldn’t say anything in his defense as even his wife was still crying at the mistreatment and shame he had exposed her to,” said an eyewitness.
The pastor, a father of two, for obvious reasons, remained mum when he was asked what he was doing in another man’s bed in the odd hours of the night. His silence enraged the man and others into beating him with kicks, bows and sticks.by MVB
