A 19-year-old woman who was jilted by the man she had met on Facebook on their first date in Meru, has returned home.

After the miraa farmer who invited her for a date fled, the woman and her two children were forced to spend two weeks at Kiutine market.

She left Meru Thursday morning and is reported to have arrived back home in Nakuru County in the evening after the man bowed to pressure and paid her bus fare.

The man is said to have sent an emissary who handed over Sh1,300 to an elder to facilitate the woman’ journey home. Other well-wishers also gave her money.
