Kenyan man accused of chopping off wife’s hands


Nairobi — A Kenyan woman says she wants her husband jailed for life for chopping off her hands with a machete because she allegedly could not bear him children.

Stephen Ngila has been charged with attempted murder after the July 25 attack.

His wife, Jackline Mwende Ngila, told The Associated Press on Tuesday that tests have shown that her husband is the one with reproductive issues.

She says their relationship deteriorated after the tests, and that her husband did not show up for treatment as doctors prescribed.

Human rights groups have condemned the attack. Naitore Nyamu of the organisation Equality Now says the government needs to take a zero-tolerance stance on protecting the rights of women and girls.

The attack occurred in Machakos town southeast of the capital, Nairobi.
