Woman caught in husband’s online spat says his girlfriend lied child was dead to get money
The woman whose husband was accused by a girl of naming their newborn after her has answered the allegations of intimidating her.
The girl, Rehema Missy from Lumakanda Ward in Lugari Sub-County, had accused her baby daddy, Charles Otende alias Mogaka, who owns a cybercafé in Lumakanda town, of sending his wife to intimidate her to prevent her from taking the baby they sired together to his home.
Rehema further accused Mogaka of naming their baby after his embattled wife, who she said went spying on her while posing as Mogaka’s sister.
The wife, known by her Facebook username as Ivy Irish, has responded to the girl’s accusations, terming them as lies.
Ivy, in a rejoinder through a Facebook group where Rehema spilled the beans, said she has tried to communicate with her husband and with Rehema herself, but the girl has not been responding to the questions asked.
“I have asked her to bring the baby to Lumakanda for its father to see, but she has refused. Do you think she is saying the truth?” She said.
Ivy said that Rehema went further and called Mogaka, claiming that their baby was dead and requesting money to pay the hospital bill. When Mogaka’s friend tried to follow up, he found out that it was a lie.
“The same friend followed up demanding to see the baby, but the lady refused to turn up and said she only wanted to see Mogaka,” Ivy continued.
Ivy is now asking the girl to take the child to Mogaka’s home.
“Even when you ask for the child’s photo, she says the baby is with her mother back at home while she’s in Eldoret. How will Mogaka take care of a baby he has not seen?” She asked.
Ivy concluded that they needed the truth and that everyone has their weaknesses. She accepts that her husband may have erred, but that doesn’t prevent her from defending him.
