A 29 year old woman was yesterday left fighting for her life in Mwea, Kirinyaga County after her husband allegedly circumcised her using a knife.

Monica Mumbi is said to have gone through the painful ordeal barely a week after returning to her matrimonial home from her parents place. According to the woman’s family, the couple is said to have been fighting from time to time and threats have been their order of the day.

However it was yesterday when the husband decided to go by his threats circumcising the mother of one leaving her badly injured and heavily bleeding. The couple is said to have started arguing at around 10:00 PM when the husband decided to commit the heinous act.

She was rushed to Kimbimbi level four hospital where she was immediately admitted and is currently receiving treat. She is said to be out of danger but may never be able to give birth again.

The suspect is still at large as he managed to flee into hiding. The family of the victim wants action taken against him and justice for their daughter served.
