Teacher’s lover flees through a window

A boda boda operator caught red handed with another man’s wife fled to safety in his birthday suit leaving his  motorcycle behind. Residents at a shopping centre in Londiani said the woman’s husband, a 24-hour petrol station attendant in town, had been informed of his wife’s escapades with the boda boda operator although he initially dismissed the information as rumours.

His wife, a primary school teacher, usually arrived home as early as 5pm, but the husband’s day stretched to the wee hours of the morning depending on his shift.

Locals said the youthful taxi operator, who used to drop the woman at her place of work and back, would arrive under the cover of darkness and park his machine outside the rented house. Those in the know said he would spend up to three hours in the woman’s house before speeding off towards his home, two kilometres away from the shopping centre.

Last week, however, the woman’s husband decided to sneak home early since he was not on the night shift that day. He arrived around 7pm, having received a call from one of his friends that the ‘thief’ was in the house. True to what he was told, he found the motorbike parked outside.

He knocked thrice on the door without a response. Furious, the man shook the latch violently, saying he would break down the door  if she didn’t open, which she did.

Suddenly, he heard footfalls behind the house. When he ran in that direction, he saw the silhouette of a naked man jumping over the brick wall with his clothes tightly clutched in his arm. The ‘thief’ had jumped through a window!

When, he returned to confront his wife, neighbours were already swarming around, having heard the commotion.

“Mwizi ametoroka lakini nimeshika piki piki yake (the thief has escaped but I have his motorbike!” said the furious man.

But one of the neighbours revealed he was not the owner of the motorbike but an employee of a businessman in the town.

A debate ensued on what should be done with the motorcycle, with some suggesting it be burned while others said the best way was to hand it to the area chief for the owner to collect and identify his employee.

But in the confusion, the woman escaped to her sister’s home in a nearby village. Efforts to reconcile them had not borne fruit by the time of going to press.
