Man Breaks Down After Returning Home After 47 Years Finding His Two Wives Remarried

A 84-year-old man is disappointed after discovering that his two wives, whom he left behind 47 years ago, have remarried.

Peter Oyuka left his Makale Village home in Malava, Kakamega County in 1974, and has now returned, with only few residents able to recognise him.

In the 1970s, he said, he was leaving the village for the urban centre in search of a well-paying job to look after his two wives and five children.

He made brief returns to Kakamega in 1983, 1992 and 1996, but did not visit home.

His wives, companionless and lonely, decided to remarry shortly after Oyuka deserted them in 1974.

On Tuesday, September 21, 2021 – forty-seven years later Oyuka returned home, to a handful of relatives who recognised him.

“I wish my wives were here today to welcome me home,” he said, shifting his expression from delight to regret, almost instantly.

Rituals were performed to welcome home the prodigal son. A white goat was slaughtered to appease the ancestors.
