A Briton accused of "eloping" with another man's wife at Malaba Police station was released unconditionally yesterday. Roza Stephen, 55, said he was surprised that a man could claim his lover of five months was his wife.
"Where was he for all this time? I am ready to marry her and she is 'expecting' my baby," said Stephen. Stephen had been arrested at Malaba with a 32-year-old Kenyan woman believed to be a retired police officer's wife.
DRAMA unfolded at the Malaba Police Station yesterday when a Briton accused a Kenyan rival of failing to take care of his wife. He added: "I have taken care of her for that long after she confessed being a single mother. Who is this man now who can claim to be her husband?"
Stephen had arrived at the Malaba border with a woman for a rendezvous en route to Uganda via Britain. But acting on a tip off he was arrested for attempting to elope with a retired police officer's wife.
They had spent two nights at a lodge and were attempting to cross to Uganda when they were nabbed. The Kenyan demanded from his wife Sh300, 000 he had given her to start a hotel business.
His woman told the police she was ready to re-unite with her husband. The police obliged and released the Briton unconditionally. The police said they had no case in the Briton after he produced a valid work permit and passport.
Stephen had said he was in the country for charity mission of helping destitute children and 'eating fruits along River Banks'. " I am a free man after divorcing my first wife. I wanted to marry a Kenyan lady but someone wants to shatter my dream."
