Do you remember the Kenyan woman, Jackline Mwende, whose estranged
husband, Stephen Ngila, used a machete to cut off her arms and left her
for dead because she couldn’t have a baby, sometime in July last year?
Well she’s having a baby.
However, the 28-year-old who has
overcomed her agony, after being fitted with prosthetic limbs in Seoul,
South Korea, thanks to the generosity of LG Electronics, refused to name
the father of her baby. The lady already has a new home she can take
care of her baby in, as German pharmaceutical and science firm Merck
built her a house complete with solar panels and a water tank.
Sun reports that women’s rights activists were furious that her
ex-husband Ngila, a tailor, was released on bail of £1,544 after being
charged with the horrific crime. Jackline also told The Associated Press
that tests done three years ago, showed that her husband is the one
with reproductive problems – not her.
She said their relationship
deteriorated after the tests, and that her husband did not show up for
treatment as doctors prescribed.
