A day after the heart-wrenching tale of one Mourine Omollo, a victim of gross domestic violence sent shock waves through major social media platforms courtesy of a candid interview done by revered Tuko journalist Lynn Ngugi, Kenyans from all creeds are now up in arms about the freedom enjoyed by the implicated ex-husband three years down the line.
Concerned Kenyans who were touched by the heartbreaking predicament of Mourine at the hands of ex-husband Joseph Owino are still reeling in shock and cannot fathom out how the monstrous husband walked scott free from the wrath of the Kenyan justice system despite inflicting his victim with permanent deformities.
During the interview that was first streamed live yesterday, a teary Mourine disclosed that her estranged husband was arraigned in court in Homabay after she assaulted her with a panga in the process losing her eye and two fingers but never went to jail.
A development that was occasioned after the court pushed them to arrive on a casual agreement that Owino would take care of Maureen and their children and at the same time pay all medical bills. An agreement that the inhumane husband never adhered to and the court similarly never made a follow-up.
A number of kind-hearted Kenyans have since promised to chip in and make a follow up on the case to ensure justice prevails.
Lynn Ngugi has already asked Kenyan lawyers who have been touched by the gory story of Mourine to reach out and pursue the matter pro-bono.
Wendy: These things make me so paranoid about marriage and I am subsequently reluctant about them. Lynn check your email, I have reached out we see how to pursue the case in court. Justice must be served. Say no to domestic violence.
Sarah: This is painful aki. People who are capable of inflicting physical pain on their spouses are a very toxic and master the art of making the victim feel to be on the wrong. I will speak to a close friend who is a good lawyer to see if he can help out.
Amani: This was so sad to watch. If only she was empowered when young. Hii kesi lazima ifuatiliwe vilivyo. How on earth can a court arrive to search a local arrangement instead of putting the perpetrator behind bars?????
