A woman was yesterday fined Sh20,000 by a Mombasa court for insulting her lover’s wife through text messages.
Ann Kivinya Ngoo admitted sending the SMS to Dorcas Ikunda between February 4 and March 3.
Ikunda reported the matter to the police and said the explicit messages embarrassed her and made people laugh at her in public.
Prosecutor Samson Kiptum told the court that Ngoo had an affair with Ikunda’s husband.
Ngoo sent a message that referred to Ikunda as a prostitute, and “matako nyeusi”.
Ngoo told chief magistrate Stephen Riech that Ikunda’s hus- band is the father of her child and her legal spouse.
