Kenyan Insecure Man Destroyed Farm Produce Worth Sh200,000 to Stop Wife from Working on Father’s Day

A man in Gichugu, Kirinyaga County on Sunday destroyed farm produce worth over Sh200,000 in order to stop his wife from working on Father’s Day.

Reports indicate the aggrieved man used a machete to slash green bananas and sacks containing avocados after his wife insisted on going to the market on Sunday.

The middle-aged man allegedly demanded that his wife takes the day off and stay at home since it was Father’s Day. Neighbors said his wife makes a living by selling farm produce at the Kitui market on Sundays.

Hellen Kaari Muriithi, one of the vendors whose produce was destroyed by the malicious man, said they learned about the incident from boda-boda riders.

Upon further investigation, they established that the suspect is the husband of one of their colleagues whose bananas were also destroyed.

Hellen estimates she lost at least Sh15,000 after the green bananas she had intended to sell were sliced into pieces.

David Muthike, an avocado trader whose stock was also destroyed, estimated that the attack cost traders more than Sh200,000.

“The suspect wanted his wife to remain at home so they could celebrate Father’s Day together,” Muthike told Citizen Digital.

It is not clear whether the incident was reported to the police.
