The woman, 31, alleged her husband assaulted her while she inquired about his car's location. “This isn't the first time he's assaulted me; he's done it before,” the survivor, who is being treated at Royo Hospital in Malava town, said.

Kakamega North Police Commander Paul Mwenda confirmed the incident and said the matter is being investigated. “If it is true that the officer raped her, we will take appropriate measures against him to ensure that the hospital bill is paid,” he said.
