A man allegedly cut off his wife’s breasts and later chopped off his penis after suspecting that his wife was cheating on him with his brother. Duncan Moseti, 24, attacked his wife while she was still asleep on Saturday morning February 13 at their resident in Kiganjo village, Thika in Kenya.
Duncan had confronted his wife Margaret Achieng, 20, with the allegations on Friday evening. Explaining what happened, the mother of one who spoke from her hospital bed said;
"He said he had reliable information that I was having an affair with his brother. He told me to leave him and get married to his brother since he was more financially stable, adding that he would do something that would make us all regret in our lives,"
"At around 3am, I woke up after I felt a sharp pain in my chest. On checking, I saw my husband cutting my breast using a knife. I pushed him away and screamed for help. He then threatened to kill our baby and chop off his private parts," she said. To save her life, she dashed out to seek help from neighbours who had come to find out out what was happening. When she returned accompanied by the neighbours, they found Moseti lying in a pool of blood. He had already cut off his manhood and hurled it outside through the window.
Neighbours immediately called an ambulance and the couple was rushed to hospital for emergency treatment.
"We were shocked by the act since they have been living in peace. There has never been any sign of domestic violence since they came here early this month," said Lydia Mwikali, a neighbour.
