Not coerced

I have not been coerced. I have decided to forgive him and let the matter go,” Ms Wangechi told the court.

She further told the court that they were still living apart after the assault that left her with stab wounds on her back, chest and face.

Ms Wangechi said that her husband waited until she fell asleep before attacking her.
