Sylvester Mwendwa and his rival reached the agreement to ‘set boundaries’ and ‘keep the peace,’ he said.
Two Kenyan love rivals have signed a contract agreeing to share a wife.
Sylvester Mwendwa and Elijah Kimani agreed to the bizarre deal after the widowed mom of two refused to decide who was her favorite.
The Daily Nation reports that the pair came to the agreement after realizing they’d both been having an affair with her for four years.
‘It could’ve been very dangerous if the other man would have come to her house and caught me. So our agreement is good as it gets,’ Mwendwa said.
The contract states that they will take turns staying at her house, raise her existing and future children and never fight over her.
Kisauni police officer Adhalah Abdulrahman told the newspaper that he mediated the fight between the lovers.
“I tried solving the issue, but they refused, each insisting he could not live without the woman,” he said.
Mwendwa and his rival have both agreed to take care of the woman’s existing and future children.
“I talked to them, and they claim they love her equally and cannot live without her. I asked the woman to choose, but she refused, saying ‘I can’t lose either of them; I love them both,'” he added.
Mwendwa told the BBC the deal was designed to “set boundaries” and “keep the peace.”
“She is like the central referee. She can say whether she wants me or my colleague,” he said.
The men reached the agreement after realizing they had each been dating the same woman for four years.
“It could’ve been very dangerous if the other man would have come to her house and caught me. So our agreement is good as it gets,” he added.
But not everyone is happy with the outcome, with some locals describing it as “uncouth, untraditional, unbiblical and against the Koran.”
Kenyan law does not explicitly forbid polyandry — when a woman takes multiple husbands — so long as it can be proved that it is part of a local custom
