“Masaibu Ya Mjane" As In-Laws Gang Up To Evict Her For Not Having A Boy Child


A widow is crying for justice after her in-laws allegedly ganged up to evict her from her matrimonial home in Siaya County because she did not give birth to a boy child.

Winnie Atieno Otieno whose husband died 9 years ago said her 2-acre of land she was left for about 20 years ago has been sold by her in-laws leaving her with nothing to till.

Atieno told Citizen that her problems began when she got a stroke and could not continue to support her elderly mother-in-law. But the issue was further complicated when her mother-in-law’s house got burnt and all blame was laid on her she had to come from Western to buy a parcel of land that she has been cultivating, leaving her with nothing apart from her house and a pit latrine.

Atieno efforts to talk to the Chief and assistant Chief did not yield any fruit. Citizen Digital reports that their efforts to get comments from her in-laws; William Otieno, Betha and Edward, whom she directly accused, hit a snag as they refused to talk about the matter.

Citizen digital twitted that the Chief said that he is aware of the case, urging for patiency as the matter is being handled.
