It is reported that the lady had a heated argument with his son before things got physical. Fortunately Monica was rushed to a local hospital in Laikipia District before she was transferred to Kenyatta National Hospital where specialists managed to save her life.  Ng’arua, Laikipia West District

Residences from Ng’arua, Laikipia District are still shocked by this unfortunate event and are hoping the assailant will be arrested and charged for attempt murder. It is not clear what led to this argument that escalated to the bizarre incident.

This comes a few months after another lady suffered the same fate. Fatuma Ibrahim was stabbed on the face with a knife that was left stuck in her skull by her husband. She managed to walk out of this alive, but she bares a scar that will remind her of this event for the rest of her life.

Domestic violence is on the rise in the country. Most local chiefs and police are “struggling to cope” with the number of domestic-abuse allegations they receive.
