A Nyeri woman mercilessly beat and stripped her husband naked after she caught him red handed having sex with a schoolgirl.
The couple decided to settle the matter by a public wrestle, an act that attracted Nyeri town residents who cheered the woman on in the 20 minute drama.

The fight brought business to a near standstill as the woman, Doreen Nkirote, tore her husband’s pair of pants exposing his member to the public.
The furious Nkirote was at one point seen on top of Robert Njogu, the husband, raining jabs on his face as residents watched from a distance.
She said the husband, who works as a tout at Nyeri town upper matatu terminals is not faithful and responsible, accusing him of neglecting his children and sleeping with all kinds of women in the village.

“Many are the times we sleep hungry waiting for him to bring food home but he only comes home vomiting on us before wetting the bed. It is still morning and I have met him already drunk. I can’t stomach it anymore and had to go full throttle,” she said as she got hold of him before exposing his member.

For these reasons, according to Nkirote, he really deserved a public discipline that would demonstrate a lifetime lesson to him and others with similar behavior.
Njogu said it was, however, not his wish to abandon his family but was prompted by Nkirote’s behavior ‘which has been so embarrassing and damaged his reputation’ and so he had to run away.
He further said he was a saved Christian who had a turban on his head but backslide due to stress and frustrations caused by his ‘drunk’ wife.
Members of the public later intervened and rescued Njogu from his wife’s kicks and blows and reconciled them. The street ‘court’ mounted by mechanics and touts left the two love birds reunited before they hugged and kissed publicly and walked home at the sprawling Majengo slums while enjoying a banana.
