My manhood had been chopped off by my own wife,” Ogero explained. Household times He said that he and his wife have been involved in a prolonged conflict. “Our marriage has been full of drama.
The first time my wife showed some warning signs was when she went on the rampage destroying household items including kitchen utensils,” he said, adding he tried to calm her down and advised her not to divert her anger into household items in vain.
According to Ogero, his wife’s fury kept going from bad to worse.
“It reached a point where she torched all my clothes leaving me with just what I was wearing. She executed the mission while I was away at work. I have reported all those cases but unfortunately authorities have been slow to take action,” he said while calling on the authorities to decisively deal with the perpetrator who is currently being held in police custody.
“I might have been a little bit lenient on previous cases but after the latest incident I will never forgive her. I am asking the government to take this matter with the seriousness it deserves because she has left me in extremely bad shape… she has also left me with a little child who I don’t know how I will handle while I am in this state,” he said
Villager Gerald Ng’ang’a said that the pair had engaged in prolonged domestic abuse in their marriage, adding that they had been attempting to resolve the issue with the local chief.
