Kenyan woman sells her husband for $17 to buy New Year clothes for her children

I guess selling your husband for $17 is a lot cheaper than a divorce.

A Kenyan woman, Edna Mukwana, made headlines after she sold her husband for a whopping $17 which she used to buy clothes for her children for the New Year.

This wasn’t a standard “trafficking” situation, since she sold her husband to a woman who according to her, “has been misleading him.”

Mukwana, who is from the Kenyan village of Kakamega, claims her husband hasn’t returned home in over a week since she first confronted him about his affair. That’s what led her to sell him for KSH 1700, which works out to around $17 USD.

According to her:

“My husband is married to alcohol and whoring around. I told the woman who has been misleading him to send me Ksh 2000 but she sent me Ksh 1700 instead. I have used all the money to buy new year clothes for my children”

When asked if she will change her mind and welcome her husband again Edna said; “I can’t. I don’t want to get into the new year with the 2019 nuisance.”
