Stranded Rwandese Woman Narrates How Kenyan Husband Eloped With Househelp, Two Children

One writer, Nora Ephron, once said a child is a grenade - when you have a baby, you set off an explosion in your marriage, and when the dust settles, your marriage is different from what it was.

Previous research has also shown that for new parents, marital satisfaction decreases faster than for those without children and this is what happened to Consolee Uwihaye's marriage.

Speaking to TUKO.co.ke's Lynn Ngugi, Consolee who was married to a Kenyan man identified as Nicholas Kamau said their marriage was fine until they welcomed their second child.

"We met in 2013 when he was doing consultancy and accounting and we married in 2015 before we welcomed our two children," narrated the businesswoman.
The mother of two said trouble started when her husband asked her and their children to join him in Bujumbura where he had relocated to after securing a new job in 2017.

There, the husband invited his sister who could not secure a job in Kenya and he told Consolee she (Kamau's sister) would babysit the children while she was on her business trips to China. Consolee embraced the idea.


However, when she returned, her husband asked her not to go back to their initial home and as a respectful wife, she closed her businesses so she could stay with him and the children.

"Wanjiru (Kamau's sister) started picking fights with me. She used to tell me people back in Kenya were tired of me and that I should pack and leave her brother's house," she said.
She raised the concerns with her husband but he would put her off saying he did not want to interfere with their issues.


 Despite the constant fighting with her sister-in-law, Consolee stayed in her marriage and according to her, the fights were her husband's strategy to kick her out of their home.

She said when the plan did not sail through, the duo came up with a plan B which was relocating the family back to Nairobi to a house they had bought at Kahawa Sukari.


According to her, they bought the house which had been built by Housing Finance (HF) Bank together and they paid for it through a mortgage.

"A friend of him who works at HF Bank introduced the project to him and he shared with me. He told me money was needed and it would be paid in form of loan starting 2015 until 2017 when we finished," she said.

" For the last amount of money we paid for the mortgage, I secured a loan in my name and when we wanted to return to Nairobi, he decided to sell my car so we could clear the loan," the Rwandese added.
The couple had also purchased a number of properties together back in the city with Consolee doing most of the payments while the properties were registered under her husband's name only.

Consleee said she did not see that as a red flag as she believed they were securing both their future and that of their children.

Months after arriving in Nairobi, Kamau's sister got them a housegirl but over one month later, things started going south and the husband changed prompting them to sleep in separate rooms.





She later realised her husband was sleeping with the househelp after she found both of them in bed and when she questioned him, he beat her leaving her helpless.

Things got worse when the estate management relocated them to a different house where they stayed for a month so a leaking tank could be fixed - this was Kamau's plan to have the house sold.

On Saturday, July 4, morning, while having a fight over the househelp, he beat her again and told her that she would rather leave the house instead of the househelp.

Later in the afternoon, he asked her to go the market to buy some fruits for the children and little did Consolee know that was the last day she would see her husband and the children.


"I told him it was okay and he sent KSh 5,000 to my Mpesa and offered to drop me at the Githurai market since it was where we used to buy food as he went to TRM to buy medicine," she said.
"What I did not know was that he went back to the house and the househelp had packed everything ready for them to leave. When I finished my shopping I called him but he was not responding," she added.
She decided to take a bodaboda back home only to find an empty house and that her husband had already rented out their house and the new occupant was moving in on the same day.

The estate management tried to intervene but the new tenant insisted he had already signed an agreement with Consolee's husband and that she had no case to report.

According to the mother of two, her husband had been planning on walking out of their marriage for years even before he convinced her to relocate to Nairobi.

The desperate woman is now requesting Kamau to give back her little children who need their mother's love and care so she can go back to Rwanda and start her life all over again.

She says none of her in-laws had been helping her despite being the only family she had in Kenya while her relatives back in Rwanda were worried about her safety.

She said the man had already filed a case in court claiming she had abandoned and traumatised her children and that she was not providing for them.

She further noted that her husband and the househelp had met back in 2019 through his sister who had lived with them in Rwanda.
