The pregnant mother of three, last week, caught the world off-guard when Sunday Vision broke the news that she married three men in her home
Self-publicist American, Phineas Taylor Barnum, once said that there is no such thing as bad publicity.
Likewise, Ann Grace Aguti from Ngora district has embraced headlines that exposed her polyandry practice. Instead of bitterness, Aguti has hailed Vision Group publications that broke the news as God-sent redemption that has helped her discover salvation.
“I want to thank Vision Group, which I believe must have been sent by God to save me from the dark world,” she says. “You may think the exposure has brought me shame, but show me any other woman in this village whose name is in the newspapers?” she asked. “I am yet to get over the warmth of my husband, but God is my husband now,” Aguti says.
The pregnant mother of three, last week, caught the world off-guard when Sunday Vision broke the news that she married three men in her home. Her exploits, however, left her father, Pastor Peter Ogwang and his Ikarebwo-Ikaalen clan, uncomfortable, especially after one of Aguti’s husbands attempted to cut her head off.
They chased the men away. However, one of the husbands, Michael Enyaku, recently returned. “Enyaku returned with an introduction letter, but I have denied him conjugal rights. I am now focused on serving God,” Aguti says.
She adds: “Unless he stops drinking alcohol, he will remain in my compound, but sharing a bed with me will not be possible.” Aguti has embarked on bettering her life instead of looking just after a horde of men.
Sunday Vision found her in the village market making purchases. “I am now able to save and buy goats and other household items, which I could not afford before because as breadwinner I had alot of responsibilities,” Aguti says.
Enyaku, who was hesitant to speak to Sunday Vision, said he has returned to take care of Aguti’s pregnancy. “Whatever Aguti tells you is final,” Enyaku said. “Even if she decides now to chase me or recall the other men, I cannot stop her,” he said.
