A mother of nine, Maria Musa, is nursing serious injuries at a hospital after her husband, Musa Matiko, allegedly chopped off her hand because she overstayed at a funeral.
The 50-year-old Kenyan told The Standard that she went for a funeral on Monday at the home of one of her in-laws, thinking that the burial would take place on that day but it delayed until Wednesday.
She said, “I stayed at the funeral for three days and left on the fourth.
“When I got home, he asked me who I thought was supposed to be cooking for him on the three days I was away.
“Previously, whenever we fought, he would beat me up with a rod, but on that day, he beat me up with a machete.”
Stating her ordeals in the hands of her husband and his family members, she said after the attack, her husband and his family members who were present left her on the scene helpless till her relative who was also around, came to her rescue.
