A businessman at Matongo Market in Kitutu Central District in Kisii County is nursing serious injuries in the head and arm after a panga-wielding man caught him in the act with his wife.
One of the businessman’s hands was completely severed, while his head had deep cut wounds following the Thursday evening attack.
Reports claim that the businessman, who operates a bar in Matongo Market, had been having an illicit affair with the wife of his assailant.
However, neighbours tipped him off about the alleged affair between his wife and the bar owner. Since then, the man was spying on the two until the fateful day, Thursday, when he busted his wife and the businessman having sex at a lodging facility in Matongo Market.
The woman managed to escape, leaving her lover behind. Her angry husband, who was armed with a panga, then attacked the businessman, cutting him in the head and chopping off his hand.
Staff at the lodging facility rushed the businessman, who was bleeding profusely, to a nearby hospital for emergency treatment.
Police in Kisii are looking for the businessman’s assailant.
