Another Kenyan man has fallen victim to the wrath of a scorned wife after his manhood was slashed in Lari Constituency.
Andrew Kamau, 49, was attacked by his wife, Hannah Wanjiru, following what she reportedly termed a suspicious call about her with a stranger.
Mr Kamau said his wife attacked him after a villager called him to report that he had collected her lost phone.
“Somebody called to tell me he had collected a phone resembling hers. She heard me talking about her lost phone and demanded to know what I was discussing about her with a stranger,” Kamau said from his hospital bed.
He said the argument soon turned into a physical fight.
“I overpowered her and she fell down. I stopped beating her but it was at that moment that our son hit me on the head with a panga and I fell. She then took the panga and cut my private parts.”
He added that when he regained consciousness, he was bleeding and in great pain.
Neighbours rushed him to a nearby clinic before he was transferred to Kijabe hospital.
A nurse told the Star that his penis, testicles, urethra, and nerves were injured but he was in stable condition.
His wife was arrested and taken to the police station.
Acting OCPD Stanley Mutungi said the suspect will be arraigned after investigations.
“We will seek four days to complete investigations,” he said.
