The man is said to have been fighting her for a long time before the tragic incident.
The left hand of the 30-year-old woman identified as Alice Kathambi was allegedly chopped off by her husband, who went further to cut her in the face before escaping.
According to eDaily, Kathambi narrated her shocking story at the health facility’s surgical ward how her husband traced her to her parents’ home in Mbirikene village in Imenti North of Kenya where she had sought asylum upon suspecting that the man would harm her following a series of domestic wrangles that had rocked their union.
During the ordeal, a thumb on her right hand was completely cut off. Speaking to eDaily, nursing officer in charge of the surgical department at the health facility, Consolata Kirigia, said Ms Kathambi was responding well to treatment. The woman has left the case for the police as she begs for justice.
