KISORO– Residents of Nzogera village, Gitenderi parish in Nyarusizia sub county, Kisoro district were this week thrown into shock after Nzogera women group forcefully expelled two of their own members on allegations of committing adultery.
The duo is Allen Mukanoheri 25 and her mother in law Jovia Ntawuguranayo. The two were on Wednesday presented before a village meeting chaired Nzogera LCI chairperson Festo serufuri where members of the said group demanded UGX 200,000 from each or be expelled from the association forever.
It is alleged that Mukanoheri had extra marital affair with Hamenya Topher, a Primary School Teacher when her husband was away in Kampala. However Mukanoheri says she was forcefully attacked and raped by Hamenya on 13th June 2020.
She further claims that she reported the matter to Police though nothing has been done todate.
Ntawuguranayo told the village meeting that other women in the association have demanded that she expels her daughter in law or else they isolate her from group as well. She however denied the demand narrating that her daughter in law did nothing wrong but rather need assistance since she is a victim.
The Nzogera village Chairperson Serufuri said that the village committee will continue to investigate and create a harmonious living in the society.
Our reporter’s attempts to get a comment from Mr. Hamenya the accused were futile as he declined to speak to the media.
A cross section of residents have however expressed disappointment at the authority of women groups that have reached an extent of chasing people from their areas of residence.
