"This assault is not the first or second time. I did it to protect my home and his anger condition..pls help," she said.
Gatwiri mentioned that she was currently hiding at an undisclosed location in Kileleshwa area and called on Kenyans on Twitter to help her highlight her plight under the arms of an alleged abusive husband.
