A middle-aged woman from Jiw Dendi Village in Awendo, Migori County has been arrested on suspicion of inciting her lover to hack her husband, leaving him with serious injuries.
Millicent Adhiambo’s husband allegedly caught her in the act with her lover on Monday night in a field located next to a school, where Adhiambo works as a cleaner.
The restless, ailing man, who had suspected his wife of cheating, went to look for her at her work place after she delayed returning home, only to find his wife having sexual intercourse with her lover in a field next to the school.
The angry husband confronted Adhiambo’s lover, only for the randy man to brandish a panga and hack him in the head and arms, leaving him with serious injuries.
According to Kombok South Sub-Location assistant chief, Beatrice Awuor, Adhiambo, during the scuffle, incited her lover to hack her husband.
Adhiambo’s husband was rescued by well-wishers, who rushed him to a nearby health facility for emergency treatment before being transferred to Tenwek Hospital in Bomet County for advanced medical attention.
Adhiambo was arrested Tuesday morning, whereas her lover remains at large.
Police had to disperse angry neighbours, who had stormed Adhiambo’s Jiw Dendi Village home with an intention of lynching her.
