A marital dispute has left a man in critical condition after he was attacked by his wife with a plow(Jembe).
56-year-old Edward Yaboga is nursing head and jaw injuries after the attack. He is admitted to Likuyani Sub County Hospital in Kakamega.
According to reports, the attack was prompted by an argument over a new number the woman had saved on her mobile phone.
In her defense, Yaboga’s wife, Josephine Nanjala, said she attacked him in self-defense.
“I left to pick firewood in the forest and left the phone in the house. When I came back he closed the door and started hurling insults as he beat me,” she said.
She added: “I didn’t mean to hurt him. It was in self-defence. He has been accusing me of infidelity, saying I sleep with men in his house, which is a big lie.”
Police are investigating the incident.
