A man from Lari, Kiambu County had his private parts chopped off by wife with a panga. She apparently overheard her husband talk about her over the phone with a stranger.
According to Andrew Kamau, his wife Hannah Wanjiru attacked him after a villager called him to report that he had found her lost phone.
Andrew’s penis, testicles, urethra and nerves were injured but is in stable condition. The exact nature of his injuries is however not known.
“Somebody called to tell me he had collected a phone resembling hers. She heard me talking about her lost phone and demanded to know what I was discussing about her with a stranger,” Kamau said.
“I overpowered her and she fell down. I stopped beating her but it was at that moment that our son hit me on the head with a panga and I fell. She then took the panga and cut my private parts.”
When Mr Kamau regained consciousness, he was bleeding and in a lot of pain.
He was rushed to PCEA Uplands clinic and later transferred to Kijabe hospital.
Some neighbours however took Hannah to the police station where she is being held.
Area acting OCPD Stanley Mutungi said the suspect will be arraigned after investigations.
“We will seek four days to complete investigations,” he said.
