Husband hacks off wife’s hands after saying she failed to have children


Nairobi, Kenya (CNN)A Kenyan woman’s hands were butchered and she was left with injuries to her head after she was brutally attacked by her husband, who blamed her for not being able to conceive any children during their seven-year marriage.

Jackline Mwende’s husband, Stephen Ngila, allegedly attacked her in their home with a machete on July 23, which also left her deaf in one ear. Her father told CNN that Ngila “threatened to shut her mouth for good before attacking her with a machete.”
Police and members of the community began looking for Ngila the night the attack took place. He was arrested the following day after appearing at the hospital where Mwende was being treated.
