Man who walked out on two wives upset to find they’ve remarried after 47 years

A Kenyan man was upset to find his two wives have remarried decades after he vanished in 1974.

The now-84-year-old Peter Oyuka returned home after reportedly leaving Makale village in Malava, Kakamega county 47 years ago when he was 37.

The now-octogenarian told his people then that he was leaving to search for greener pastures to take care of two wives and five children, according to Tuko.co.ke.

However, he did not inform his family of where he was headed and when he would return.

He told local media that he visited Kakamega in 1983, 1992 and 1996, but failed to enter his home.

Now, he has officially returned for good but was saddened to find out his wives had given up on hopes of his return and had married other men.

Although he spent part of 47 years in Tanzania where he fell in love and had a child with another woman, he expected his wives to remain intact.

He said: "I wish my wives were here today to welcome me home.

“My Tanzanian lover stopped communicating with me and is yet to allow me to meet our son.

“I wish my two wives well in their marriages. However, I’d like them to know that I’m still alive and that they should create time and visit me.”

Oyuka’s return home was facilitated by a Good Samaritan who shared details about him on Facebook.

His 53-year-old son, Aggrey Osanji, who was just six years old before he vanished saw the post and followed up, leading to his return home.

In accordance to Luhyia customs, a white goat was sacrificed to pacify the ancestors before he was accepted into his home.
