Businessman Batters Wife For Inviting Pastor Into Their Home

A 35-year-old businessman took to the dock last week for clobbering his wife over claims that she welcomed a preacher into their house, cooked for him then escorted him out in the night. Aggrey Otuola Obaje is said to have assaulted and injured his love, Teresa Atieno on March 30 within Shauri Moyo area of Nairobi after the wife could not explain what relation she had with the pastor.

The prosecution said that in preparation for the Sabbath Atieno had welcomed the preacher for prayers while the husband was away then served him tea and buttered bread like she did with any other visitor.

But at around 9pm, the man of the house arrived and found the wife and preacher having the meal discussing Christian niceties.

“Obaje asked who the visitor was and what he was doing during those ungodly hours, the pastor replied that he had brought the good news of salvation and would not mind to also pray for the head of the family,” read part of the charge particulars.

The court heard that Atieno read mischief in her husband’s conduct and excused herself to see off the preacher. She tagged along their young daughter just to show that she had nothing fishy in seeing off the man.

“The accused Obaje asked the wife where she was going and what she was doing with the strange pastor outside the house. She responded that she was escorting the preacher to a nearby church but this did not go down with the husband who mocked her of cooking for the preacher and not for her real husband,” read the charge particulars.

Atieno returned to the house but Obaje locked the door from inside, prompting her to continuously knock as she begged him to open the door for the sake of their daughter.

The prosecution heard that Obaje emerged from the house, grabbed his wife and slapped her on the face.

Minutes later, neighbour milled around the house and managed to rescue Atieno who was screaming uncontrollably before prevailing on Obaje to allow his wife and young daughter in.

Atieno would later report her husband to the police where he was taken to court and denied the charge and was released on a Sh10,000 cash bail.

His case will proceed for hearing on the July 31.
