A Kenyan man named Stephen Ngila is in police custody after he allegedly chopped off his wife, Jackline Mwende’s two hands on July 24 2016.
27-year-old Jackline who narrated how she was unable to conceive after 7 years of marriage, said:
“I could not understand why he was blaming me yet we had gone to hospital last year and the doctors had said he was the one with issues, which could be corrected. .
“He moved out of our house three months ago and came back on Sunday (July 24) at around 8.30pm. When I opened the door, he said ‘today is your last day’ and started slashing me with the panga.”
The victim’s biological family who want Stephen to face the full wrath of the law also told newsmen how Jackline had wanted to leave the abusive marriage on several occasions but was discouraged by her pastor.
