Melvin Akinyi, a Bunyala resident in Busia County is currently nursing wounds after her cheek was bitten by her co-wife on Friday.
Narrating the incident while at the hospital, Melvin noted that she was bitten on the left by her co-wife Brenda Sanya over family differences.
She revealed that Brenda attacked her in the morning when their husband had left for his sand harvesting job on River Nzoia.
Akinyi mentioned: “She popped at my house early in the morning and asked my (mother) in-law that she urgently wanted to speak to me. After I welcomed her in the sitting room, she pleaded with me to put aside the child I was breastfeeding while ordering my in-law to leave the house since she had a private message, but I refused.”
It was after her mother-in-law refused to leave the house that she attacked Akinyi by pushing her on the ground and bit her cheek.
Akinyi, who now bears deep cheek and stomach wounds was rescued by her neighbors.
Confirming the incident, Busia Health Center officer Leonard Barasa noted that she victim bears deep wounds but had received the required medical attention.
Akiny further complained that her co-wife has been trailing her and threatening to attack her.
“The other day she attacked me injuring the baby seriously and I had to go to the hospital. My relatives told me to forgive her but this time around she has to face the full force of the law,” she asserted.
She noted that she will report the incident to the authorities for their intervention.
