Condom accident exposes son’s promiscuity

By | May 11th 2009

By Joseph Muchiri

Residents of Maili Inne in Eldoret were treated to a sad late evening drama when a 14-year-old boy handed his mother a packet of condoms instead of the matchbox she had asked for.

Though the boy had done it inadvertently, the woman couldn’t hide her shock and screamed her lungs out before she collapsed in a heap and fainted.

The incident, which took place two weeks ago, had alarmed neighbours who rushed to the home to find the boy making frantic efforts to simultaneously hide the offending packet of condoms and offer first aid to his mother.

Earlier in the day, the woman’s househelp had sought permission to go and visit her parents in Bungoma. The woman had readily granted her request unsuspecting that a plot was being executed between the maid and her son.

The househelp had secretly arranged with the boy to spend the night in his room and leave very early for Bungoma the next morning.

She had left the home casually but surreptitiously made her way back into the compound and jumped through the window. The boy had left the window of his room unlocked to facilitate the plan.

Exposed by blackout

Their plan, carried out with precision, could have perfectly succeeded were it not for a power blackout in the early evening.

The woman, who was caught in darkness, went to the son’s room to borrow a matchbox as she could not trace any in the house.

The son, engulfed in darkness and throes of passion, accidentally picked the packet of condoms and quickly handed it to his mother. He wanted to prove his obedience and willingness to help his mother at all times.

But when she opened the strange looking matchbox, she couldn’t believe her eyes to find herself holding some condoms and fainted.

"What has happened?" some neighbours asked when they found the confused boy wondering what to do.

He was too dazed to explain, and it did not take long for them to gather what was happening. They shone a touch at the boy demanding an explanation. Some entered the room and flushed out the house help.

The woman came to later to find her son and the house help kneeling before her seeking for forgiveness.
