A middle-aged man was forced to run for his dear life after he was busted with a neighbour's wife having sex on Friday mid-morning.
The incident happened at Eroga village in Mosocho, Kisii County in Kenya.
James Obiri said he returned home from the farm at 10:30 am only to find his wife Elmelda Nyabonyi with the man Innocent Ongweso on the act.
"My wife pretended she was sick. I left her in the house and went to the work in the farm alone. On returning I found the door locked from inside," said Obiri.
Angered Obiri said he noticed his wife was with a man in the house after he spotted 'foreign' sandals at the door.
"I mobilized locals, we teamed and broke the door of the house and found the two red-handed naked," he said.
Area assistant chief Robert Kimonge said Ongweso was attacked by angry locals before he luckily 'varnished' into a near maize farm abandoning his clothes and sandals.
"Ongweso could be a dead man were it not his tricks he used to escape. The woman received a dog's beating before she was sent away by her husband," said the chief.
Mr. Kimonge warned women against having illicit love affairs outside the wedlock saying any woman who is not satisfied with marriage should ask for a divorce formally.
