Residents of Nzogera village, Gitenderi parish in Nyarusizia Sub County, Kisoro district were this week shocked after Nzogera women group expelled one of their members on allegations of committing adultery.
Allen Mukanoheri 25 years and her mother in law Jovia Ntawuguranayo were on Wednesday presented before a village meeting where members of the women group demanded 200,000 shillings from each or they are expelled from the village forever.
It is alleged that Mukanoheri had extra marital affair with one Hamenya Topher, a primary school teacher when her husband was away in Kampala.
However while speaking to www.mknewslink.com , Mukanoheri claimed that she was raped by Hamenya Topher on 13th June 2020 when he found her in her home and the matter is at police.
Her mother in law Jovia Ntawuguranayo explained that women in the association have demanded that she expels her daughter in law or else she is also expelled from the women group.
She insisted that she cannot abandon her daughter in law because she has done nothing wrong but she is just a victim of rape.
Attempts to get a comment from Hamenya Topher were futile as he declined to speak to the media.
The area LC I chairman Festo Serufuri said it is unfortunate that women groups are given such power to chase their fellows. He said that the Local Council committee will continue to meet to find a harmonious solution to the problem
