Man hacks 25-year-old wife’s hand, thighs after mild argument

Police in Malava, Kakamega County, Kenya have launched a hunt for a 30-year-old man accused of hacking his wife, 25, in the thighs and arms.

Evelyne Muchite, a resident of Mkavakavaka Village, said her husband, Meshach Japheth, returned home Monday mid-morning while drunk.

“As he was leaving, I asked him to give me money so that I could buy sugar and make breakfast for the children, who were complaining of hunger.

He ignored me at first. I, thereafter, told him that he was wasting money on alcohol, yet his children and I, his wife, were suffering from hunger.

It was at that point that he reached for a panga and hacked me several times in the arms and thighs,” Muchite told K24 Digital.

The suspect, who escaped to an unknown destination after the incident, is said to have, of late, developed a habit of assaulting his spouse.

Japheth’s brother, George Bush, says his sibling, a mason, has a drinking problem.

“He has assaulted his wife on two previous occasions. I am afraid he would kill her the third time he abuses her physically,” said Bush, who took Evelyne to Malava Sub-County Hospital, where she was treated and discharged.
