The 60-year-old miraa farmer recounted how his wife strike his head and limb with a machete and then cut off parts of his private parts when he was writhing in anguish.
The husband also revealed to the court that his daughter was woken up by the commotion but was also hit and ordered by her mother to remain silent. However, she ran out and called for aid ad that's how her father escaped from the jaws of death.

As a woman, even if you are angered by your husband, you should not target that part of the body. She should have reported the matter to a church for it to be handled there,” said a relative of the man.
