How KOT reacted to news that Mwende had cheated on her husband and conceived 3 days before her hubby chopped her hands off for being barren

Last year, photos of Jackline Mwende a lady who had been decapitated for failing to bear children hit the headlines and Kenyans were outraged by the plight of this young lady from Masii.

And true to the reports, Ngila was the one with the problem as Jackline Mwende conceived 3 days before the attack that made her a countrywide sensation.

Speaking to The Nation, Jackline revealed that the attack by her husband could have been instigated by the fact that she was spotted in Machakos town where she had shacked up with the father-to-be. She chose the lodging because she didn’t want to disrespect her maternal bed even though she lived alone after her husband left their house and deserted her for three months.

Little did she know Stephen had left people to spy on her and they most likely informed him what Jackline had been up to before he came and carried out the horrific attack on her.


 “I wanted a child. I was desperate and it is that yearning ... and probably the devil too ... that made me stray out of my marriage. But I did it to save my marriage.” She said in regards to the straying that cost her both of her hands.

Jackline will be welcoming her child in late February or early March and she has refused to disclose the identity of the said man as they were already done with their transaction.

News of her pregnancy has been met with mixed reactions with some saying that her desire for a child and seeking someone to give her one was human and Stephen Ngila had no right to cut her hands off despite what she did. While others ‘withdrew’ their pity on realizing that she cheated and was not the blameless victim after all.

Here is a sample of the reactions:
