There is time for humans to joke around with life and time to be serious about it all. Why would you kill a child just because you suspect he it was born out of wedlock? This is animosity that should be condemned, and the people involved in cruel act face the law.
A couple in Nyando, Kenya was sentenced to life imprisoned following revelation that they strangled their two-month-old child after the husband doubted the fatherhood of the child.
Apparently, the man in the house refused to accept the kid because he suspected that his wife cheated on him and got pregnant by the unknown man. They two, husband and wife, decided to kill the child and secretly dispose off the body.
It took the neighbors involvement to unravel the mystery and the couple arrested and charged with murder.
The two did not even confirm that the kid was actually the fruit of another man. DNA test was not carried out to determine the paternity of the deceased. This only confirms that the couple was not ready for parental responsibilities.
We know that life is not that simple because of financial reasons. However, this should not be a reason fit to kill an innocent child just to avoid parental responsibilities.
Personally, I know of a person who became so violent after he suspected that his wife cheated on him. It got so nasty that the elders from his side and those from his wife to discuss the way forward. Eventually, the two separated but good that the child was not harmed.
Why not just give away the child for adoption if you think the child is not part of your family? It is not worth the chance but for sure, the child will someday have a bright future.
I hate evil!
