It did not go well for one Nyali MP Hezron Awiti attempt to divorce his wife who in turn brought to the limelight the private life of the politician.
Awiti wanted to divorce his wife Lucy Adhiambo in May 2009 accusing her of adultery and wanted their marriage declared null. He also accused Adhiambo of stealing Sh8 million from his company.
But in a cross-petition which had previously been dismissed but later reinstated, Adhiambo accused the former lawmaker of cheating on her with five women.
She further accused him of deserting their matrimonial home and denying her conjugal rights because he suffered erectile dysfunction.
She stated that she had been unable to enjoy sex since 2005 due to her husband’s impotence. She alleges to have suffered psychologically after Awiti forced her to undergo some rituals.
The politician, she claimed, had assaulted her several times, causing her bodily harm.
