A married couple busted each other when they bumped into each other at the same lodging in Mlolongo town on the Nairobi-Mombasa highway.
The little town, which is just a collection of shops and pubs spread on both sides of the highway, is popular with amorous track drivers and married men and women with secrets to hide.
According to Salma, an eyewitness in Mlolongo, husband and wife separately hooked up with their respective clandestine lovers a fortnight ago.
“They both checked into the same guest house and proceeded to their respective rooms with their clandestine lovers in tow. But hours later, hell broke loose,” Salma offers.
Apparently that evening, the guesthouse experienced power outages and as the woman came out of the shower, the lights went out. Wrapped in a towel, she walked to the main reception to enquire what was a miss.
But in a twist of fate, “Her husband also came out in a pair of shorts and an unbuttoned shirt and headed straight to the reception to for the same reason,” says Salma.
Forgetting that each was guilty, they both demanded to know what the other was doing at the lodge before throwing caution to the wind and wrestling each other to the ground.
“I just saw the woman scream and grab her husband who slapped her hard out of fury,” Salma reports.
“The lovers who were still in the room were attracted by the loud confrontation only to find man and wife tearing into each other. They both quickly slipped through the door and disappeared in the darkness as the couple beat the hell out of each other,” Salma says.
”You lied to me that you would be at the project site this evening supervising the construction of our house,” the woman shouted at her husband who was also trying to get answers from her.
Apparently, the woman has been secretly entertaining her young lover, not knowing that the husband also frequented the same lodging with a clandestine lover.
The couples were thrown out of the lodging by the management as curious onlookers enjoyed the free evening drama.
