A Kenyan man by the name Lawrence Gitau has left many shocked after he revealed that he burned his wife alive.
Gitau, a teacher by profession, through a Facebook post, disclosed that his wife was cheating on him with her boss for five years and he could not take it anymore.
“ITS ONLY GOD WHO KNOWS WHY IT HAD TO GO THAT WAY, YOU CHEATED ON ME WITH YOUR BOSS FOR FIVE GOOD YEARS, I ALWAYS ASKED YOU IF YOU LOVED HIM AND I USUALLY GAVE YOU SPACE TO GO AND MARRY HIM BUT YOU REFUSED, INSTEAD YOU ALWAYS TOLD ME KASERO WAS A GOOD FRIEND AND NOTHING WAS GOING ON BETWEEN YOU TWO. AT LONGONOT WE PASSED THROUGH A LOT OF STRUGGLES IN OUR RELATIONSHIP, LITTLE DID I KNOW THAT I WAS THE ONE IN THE DARK EVERYBODY IN THE TOWN KNEW ABOUT YOUR RELATIONSHIP AND YOU WERE NOT HIDING ANYMORE,” HE WROTE IN PART.
He went ahead to share shocking revelations about his wife claiming that she used to lie to the whole town that he forced her to be the breadwinner of the family.
“YOU COULD SLEEP AT ELDAMA A LODGING NEXT TO OUR HOUSE SO THAT EVERYBODY COULD KNOW, YOU SPREAD A FALSE GOSPEL IN THE WHOLE TOWN THAT AM FORCING YOU TO COME WITH SUPPER AS I SPEND ALL DAY SLEEPING. I HAD ALREADY BEEN CONTRACTED BY IEBC AND I HAD 40,000 WHICH COULD HAVE PUSHED ME BEFORE I GOT ANOTHER JOB, IN FACT, ALL THIS TIME YOU WERE SOILING MY NAME. I HAD 30,000 IN THE HOUSE, YOU WENT AHEAD AND BEWITCHED ME, THAT I SHOULD NOT GET A JOB. I TRIED MANY PLACES BUT YOU ALWAYS TOLD ME I WON’T GET A JOB BECAUSE YOU KNEW WHAT YOU HAD DONE. YOU AGAIN MADE SURE I FELL OUT WITH FAMILY AND EVERYWHERE I WENT TO WORK.TO MAKE THE MATTER WORSE YOU PUT A VERY STRONG PUNGENT SMELL ON MY BODY EVERY TIME I WENT CLOSE TO PEOPLE THEY WERE COMPLAINING. ON THAT DAY WHEN I WAS GOING FOR MY MISSION, I HAD TO ALIGHT FIVE VEHICLES CAUSE OF THE SMELL YOU HAD PUT ON ME. YOUR FAMILY MAY NOT BELIEVE THIS BUT WANJIRU YOU HAD GONE TOO FAR UP TO SLEEPING WITH MY UNCLE WHO IS A BISHOP AT NJABINI.”
“Anyway, I did all I could to tell your sisters and parents everything was not OK in our marriage and death was smelling in our house, they did an honorable thing of taking you to Nairobi at Kinoo, where you got a job and promised to move out. To my surprise, Kasero convinced and confused you that you come back to Longonot and report me to CID am threatening your life. From then you convinced your family members that house you build alone and you wanted me arrested.
When I was away you had a field day with Kasero and you were bringing him in the house every day. When our neighbor, mama Maina told me about it you took her to police.”
“I AM NOT BITTER ABOUT WHAT I DID, GIVEN ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY WANJIRU I WILL DO IT AGAIN. I HAVE NO REGRETS WHATSOEVER, I LOVED YOU SOO MUCH BUT YOU PLAYED ME LIKE A FOOL, YOU ALWAYS PREDICTED THAT I WOULD KILL YOU ONE DAY, YOU TOLD ME THIS ON THE FACE SO MANY TIMES, NOTHING HAPPENS WITHOUT A REASON.”
“Kasero, if you loved Wanjiru you could have married her instead of throwing me away from my matrimonial home, as you use police to intimidate me. I reported the matter to area chief and as usual mkaruka, I told Mr. Muiru, and anybody who cared to listen.
BEFORE YOU THROW THOSE STONES AT ME TELL ME WHAT COULD YOU HAVE DONE A MAN SLEEPING IN YOUR HOUSE ON YOUR BED AND THEY TAKE YOU TO POLICE?
Madam inspector of Longonot you came all the way to Mombasa to arrest me instead of investigating Kasero, who was sleeping in my house and had taken my wife. You were chasing the wrong man as God never allowed you to arrest me. We met in Mombasa streets and could tell from the look in your face you were frustrated.
ANYWAY, IT HAPPENED AND FOR AVOIDANCE OF DOUBT I BURNED HER ALIVE AS SHE WAS SCREAMING MY NAME. THERE WAS ANOTHER MAN IN THE HOUSE GUESS KASERO AND I DON’T KNOW HOW HE ESCAPED..I DID ALL COULD TO MAKE THINGS WORK BUT IT WAS NOT MEANT TO BE …AM PRESENTING MYSELF TO THE POLICE ANYTIME FROM NOW AND WILL BE GLAD TO SPEND THE REST OF MY LIFE IN JAIL.”
