A  Kakamega man from Eninja Village in Lurambi Constituency disturbed his next-door-neighbour on Friday, August 21, when he demolished three of his houses to object against his daughter’s relationship with a neighbour.

Geoffrey Mushila, 45, did not support his 21-year-old daughter’s relationship with the 28-year-old neighbour citing possibilities that the youthful man won’t grant him the honour he earns as a “father-in-law”.

Geoffrey Mushila, a famous businessman in the village, said his child, Irene Adema, conceived for Zablon Mandela, prompting Mandela to promise he would marry his daughter.

“I'm determined to bring down my houses because I am offended by that man’s decision to elope with my daughter. I even do not know where am relocating,” said Mushila.

“I own several businesses here, which include posho mills, a retail shop and several tuk-tuks. I was committed to taking good care of my family. My daughter, however, got pregnant and when I inquired who was responsible for the pregnancy, she said it was a neighbour’s son. I was disappointed, " he said.

“The youthful man responsible for her pregnancy said he was ready to marry my daughter, " he added.

“The man knows me well. He is an electrician, who did the wiring in my house. He accessed my bedroom, saw my bed, saw my wife’s underwear, he stepped on my bed while doing his job. How do you expect such a person to respect me as his father-in-law?” posed Mushila, who is also a preacher in Kakamega Town.

“I recently met him walking around in a vest. Surely, a father-in-law should not be seeing his son-in-law dressed in such a manner publicly. He should be displaying his chest and biceps to my daughter, not me. I must relocate so that he and I do not meet casually daily,” said the middle-aged man.

The parents of Zablon Mandela, Mushila’s daughter’s boyfriend, said they have embraced Irene Adema to their family, and that they won’t allow their son to depart from the 21-year-old.

“She is a good girl, and we have welcomed her home,” said Henry Mulanda and Hellen Iminza, who are Zablon Mandela’s parents.

Neighbours say Mushila’s relocation from Eninja Village will leave them vulnerable, given they depend on his posho mill, shop and taxi businesses to go about their daily lives.

Irene Adema is the firstborn among Mushila’s five children.
