This shocking incident occurred on 19th November 2021 in Igembe North, Meru county.

The prosecution said that the man was attacked at around 3:00 am by his wife for failing to subdivide his miraa farm.

The court heard that the victim was shocked seeing his wife holding a panga over him at night

She struck his head and limb, and while he was still writhing in pain, the woman went for a kitchen knife and chopped off his privates. Efforts of the 60-year-old miraa farmer bore no fruit as he went unconscious. She then forced him to take an unidentified liquid.

The daughter, who was woken up by the commotion, started screaming but was hit hard by her mother, who ordered her to remain mute.

The girl managed to sneak out of the house, calling for help; neighbors positively responded as the woman locked the door from inside. One brave neighbor with a panga gained courage, stormed the house, and disarmed the woman.

She attempted to escape, but the angry villagers caught up with her and wanted to lynch her. Eventually, police officers and the chief arrived in time and saved her, and she was taken to Laare police station for investigation. The chopped body parts were recovered from the scene.
