Woman's hands chopped off by husband for overstaying at funeral

He just attacked me. He beat me and cut me repeatedly with the machete.

She said the man hacked off her left hand with a machete and left the right one hanging limply, accusing her of delaying to return home after attending a funeral.

She claimed that her husband cut her on the face and threw a spear at her as she tried to run away.

The woman said she went for a funeral at the home of one of her in-laws, thinking that the burial would take place on that day but it delayed.

“When I came back home evening he was not in. I prepared for the evening but when he came, he just attacked me. He beat me and cut me repeatedly with the machete, threatening to kill me,” said the woman from her hospital bed.

She claimed that her husband, his brother, and other family members left her to bleed and that it took the intervention of distant relatives to rush her to Ombo hospital in Migori town.

“They refused to report the matter to the police. I passed out and gained consciousness at the hospital after my nephew brought me here,” she said.

The woman appealed for justice, saying no action had been taken against her husband.

But Migori police commander, Joseph Nthenge, said the matter had not been reported to any police station.

“We cannot investigate a case when there are no complainants. The family has decided to keep it covered but we will ensure justice prevails,” he said.
