Should a man take responsibility of educating his girlfriend with a promise of marriage afterwards? And how should a man react when after such an arrangement, the girlfriend in question reconsiders her choice?
Two days ago in Navakholo, Kakamega county, Kenya, the village woke up to unprecedented fog of agony when Patriick Nyapara, an Administration Police Officer, allegedly shot and killed his fiance with whom they’ve had a relationship for a significant number of years.
However, a narrative emerged that Christine Maonga, the victim, had been supported by the officer throughout the university with a promise to marry him. After college, she changed her mind and allegedly ridiculed the officer as a D- material and unworthy of her.
Hurt, beaten, infuriated and feeling the pinch of betrayal, the AP hunted and gunned her down.
A sad end in deed!
But the main question here is, where do we stand to adjudge this case on the theme of ‘relationships and the promise of marriage’ before we all conclude that life is sacrosanct?
Just how far should a man go in supporting a lady?
