On July 24th, this Kenyan husband is alleged to have chopped off the hands of his wife. Not just that he went further to cut her face, leaving very large cuts on her face. God alone knows how she survived this. Reports state that he was on Monday, charged with attempted murder.
Stephen Ngila Nthenge, 34, was arraigned at Wamunyu law court where he denied the charge. He will be remanded until August 5. This Kenyan Husband is a tailor at Masii town. He had moved out of their matrimonial house three months ago and only returned on July 24 when he staged the attack. He attacked Ms. Jackline Mwende, 27, of Kathama village, Masii in Machakos County with a panga on the evening of that day.
“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,” Ms. Mwende said at her father’s Kathama home, where she lives after being discharged from Machakos Level 5 Hospital on Friday.
The man was arrested on Monday, July 25 at around 1pm in Machakos town hours after he fled his home in Masii.
