A Member of County Assembly (MCA) in Kakamega County was on Tuesday night caught in the act with a bishop’s wife.

The MCA whose name has been withheld was caught by residents in the throes of lustful passion in a bush at around 1:00 am.

The two lovers had attended a wake at a funeral in the neighbourhood before vanishing into the bush, raising suspicion among mourners.

They are said to have sneaked out as the wife’s husband was leading the funeral service. Some of the mourners followed them and caught them pants down.

Bishop Abel Lijoti of African Divine Church said that he had been suspecting his wife and mother of his eight children was playing ‘away matches’ since November, 2016.

“We are infuriated by the MCA’s action. He should seek forgiveness from the woman’s husband. The Bishop is his neighbour. It seems he lured the woman using his monies. The Bishop and his wife have eight children together, and the woman has since fled her home,” said a mourner, who sought anonymity.

The politician, however, denied the allegations saying his political enemies are behind the malicious allegations.

“The propaganda has ruined my reputation, and it hurts me. They claim they busted me with the said woman, whereas I was at my home Monday night by 10:00 pm, actually asleep beside my wife. I have investigated and established that the allegations were started by my political enemies who are out to ruin my reputation. I cannot sleep with someone’s wife. I will take legal action against the perpetrators of the malicious rumours,” said the MCA.
