Mr. Mohammed Deeq was arraigned in Wajir court after he stabbed his wife deep down her cheeks. Mrs. Fatuma Ibrahim, the victim of the incident attracted the attention of the entire nation after her disturbing photos were shared all over social media. The accused stabbed the 33-year old woman with a kitchen knife following a domestic spat. The victim was later flown to Nairobi Hospital by AMREF Flying Doctors where she underwent a successful operation.
The accused pleaded not guilty before Wajir’s Resident Magistrate Bildad Rongocho.
His case was postponed until January 11 after the prosecution requested the magistrate for more time to get the medical report. Mrs. Fatuma is currently at Nairobi Hospital where she is recuperating after the removal of the knife.
In the recent past, human rights activists have raised their concern over increased cases of domestic violence in the country and Fatuma’s incident is a clear example of what is taking place in most Kenyan households.
