Man Cuts Off Wife's Hand For Not Getting Pregnant (Photos)

34-year-old Kenyan man,
Stephen Ngila Thenge allegedly
chopped off his wife’s hand with
a knife for not being able to give
him a child after seven years of
marriage. According to popular daily in
Kenya, 28-year-old Jackline
Mwende from Kathama Village,
Masii in Machakos County, had
her hands chopped off at the
wrist by her husband, Stephen. She is also nursing injuries on
her head and neck from the
gruesome attack. Relatives say
the couple had been having
issues and Ms Mwende wanted
to leave her husband but was advised against it by the pastor.
Ms Mwende, who spoke about
the incident at her father’s
Kathama home, where she now
stays after her discharge from
the hospital on Friday, July 29, said that before the attack, they
had separated for about three
months over failure to have
children.
She said “I could not understand
why he was blaming me yet we had gone to hospital last year
and the doctors had said he was
the one with issues, which could
be corrected. My husband, a
tailor at Masii town, refused to
follow up on treatment. He moved out of our house three
months ago and came back on
Sunday (July 24) at around
8.30pm. When I opened the
door, he said ‘today is your last
day’ and started slashing me with the panga.” When she cried
out for help, he allegedly took to
his heels before the neighbors
got there and rushed her to the
hospital.
