A 38 year old mother of seven from Mau Narok is nursing severe injuries after her husband brutally assaulted her, gorging out her eyes over Sh130.
Serah Wairimu, who has been undergoing treatment at the Rift Valley Province General Hospital suffered severe head injuries, burns on her private parts, cuts on her neck and hands and one of her eyes gorged out.
The woman is hitherto totally blind with a partially damaged eardrum resulting from the beatings.
“He told me he had given Sh500 to the children and who were to return a balance of Sh130. I was however not aware because I was at work but when I could not account for the money he took boiling water and poured on me before taking out a knife to stab me. He had locked the house and I could not escaped until the children heard the commotion and started screaming for help,” Wairimu said.
One of the eyes was totally gorged out, while the other sustained deep cuts that caused retinal detachment, a situation that has rendered her totally blind.
“I still cannot understand why he did all these to me, we have been married for 22 years. I work so hard to feed the family and he still has the guts to do all these to me,” she told the Standard.
She said she became unconscious, two weeks later she found herself in the hospital where she has been confined for almost two months with the bill rising to over Sh50,000.
“I am still in a dark world, I cannot see a thing, I strain to hear, may be as a result. I still cannot walk although the wounds are almost healed. Part of my face is still numb and cannot feel a thing and my chest still aches,” Wairimu said.
