Man stabs his pregnant wife to death after 15 years of marriage

She vomited blood and lost a lot of blood from the injured liver leading to death

Ms Aliow was pregnant with her seventh child before her husband cruelly cut short her life. The report indicates the woman had a penetrated abdominal trauma that severed her left lope of the liver.

Liver

“She vomited blood and lost a lot of blood from the injured liver leading to death,” concludes the report.

Mandera Woman rep Amina Gedow blamed maslaha for the increase in domestic violence in the county according to a report by Nairobi News.

Maslaha is a local mechanism to resolve conflicts and disputes supervised by clan elders.

“We have to abolish maslaha in our society to get rid of such incidents that are on the rise in Mandera,” she said.

Kangaroo court

Under maslaha, clan elders through a kangaroo court, agree on a certain payment for any life lost without spelling out punishment for the offenders.

“Most men are taking advantage of this arrangement to commit serious crimes and end up (being) freed by elders even where life has been lost,” she said.

The MP wants a bold line drawn between types of crimes to be settled by elders and those to be handed over to government institutions.
