A heated altercation between a woman and her husband’s mistress ended with the woman losing a part of her left ear.

Grace Wakesho, speaking from Voi hospital said that her love rival bit off a chunk of her ear and swallowed it.

According to the mother of one, the catfight ensued after her husband’s mistress visited her at her workplace in Voi.

“She laughed at me saying she had taken my husband away. I got angry and we began fighting. She bit my ear and swallowed the piece,” she told the Star.

“I don’t know what is wrong with my husband because whenever he comes back, he complains that he is sexually starved and hungry. He acts very abnormally,” she added.

Ms Wakesho added that her husband’s parents had warned him to end the illicit affair.

“His parents have asked him to end the relationship with the 40-year old woman but my 27-year old husband has refused to heed their call,” she said.

Wakesho’s love rival did not suffer any serious injuries in the fight.

Wakesho, vowing to prevent the mistress “who has never been married” from ruining her union said she reported the incident to police and obtained a p3 form.
