A jealous husband has sexually and physically assaulted his wife in Kenya, after he applied superglue mixed with sand and pepper to seal off her private part.
The man, who is currently on the run, attacked his wife after accusing her of infidelity.
According to police in Tharaka South sub-county, the suspect first persuaded his wife to move from their Marimanti township home, with the fear that he will be arrested for having to travel from Nairobi, where there is a lockdown.
On reaching Kathita river, the suspect, who threatened to kill his wife, ordered her to undress, after asking her to name the men she slept with while he was away.
It was gathered that when she turned down his request, the man descended on her with blows, while threatening to stab her with the knife he was holding.
Kiprop Rutto, Tharaka South police commander, said the suspect also added salt and onions in his wife’s private part using a sharp knife, before applying the superglue mixed with sand and pepper to ‘seal’ it off.
He also applied the same super glue on his wife’s ears and mouth before fleeing from the scene.
The woman managed to walk to Marimanti police station, where she reported the matter.
She was rushed to Marimanti sub-county hospital, where she is receiving treatment.
Rutto added that the suspect is a known criminal in the region, who is being sought by the police for various crimes.
