Less than a week after a university student was hacked to death, a 30-year-old woman is admitted at the Karatina Subcounty Hospital after suffering 17 stab wounds.

According to Citizen Digital, Peninah Wangeci and her husband, Samuel Ndirangu, had an altercation on Tuesday that ended in the life-threatening injuries.

She claims that their marriage has been in turmoil and it was not the first time her husband had assaulted her.

The shocking incident called for police investigations even as Mr Ndirangu surrendered.

He is being held at the Karatina Police Station and has not denied the events as recounted by his wife.

Medical Superintendent Benson Ngari told reporters that Wangeci survived because she did not lose a lot of blood. According to the medic, the cuts were not too deep.

Stabbed University student

A Moi University Medicine student going by the same name as Peninah was hacked to death at the Moi University Teaching and Referral Hospital on Wednesday.

The sixth year student, Ivy Wangechi, was injured with an axe by one Naftali Njahi Kinuthia who had traveled from Thika to Eldoret to see her.

Mr Kinuthia claimed that he was infuriated by 24-year-old Ms Wangechi who refused to pick his phone calls despite him having sent her money for her birthday.

The incident has sparked debates as one journalist was suspended and a radio presenter bashed for their views on the subject.
