A man in Kenya has caused serious uproar after he poured boiling water on his wife's private parts following a domestic quarrel.
Daily Nation reports that the mother of two from Kianamu Village in Embu County, was left with serious burns on her thighs and private parts and is currently on admission at the Siakago Level Four Hospital.
Narrating her ordeal to newsmen, Wakere said what led to the assault was a minor disagreement between her and husband that could have been settled amicably but he went as far as pouring the hot water on her.
“He just scooped water that was boiling and splashed it on my thighs. He had aimed at my private parts, which were partly scalded,” she said.
Nyaga said the wound had deteriorated due to the lengthy stay without medication but her condition has since improved.
It was also learned that Wakere broke two fingers of her finger after she fell during the attack
A Nursing Officer at the hospital where Wakere is receiving treatment, Secinta Nyaga, disclosed that the woman's upper right thigh and her private parts had started developing infections when she was taken to the hospital.
The assault is currently causing an uproar in the Embu County with women rights groups calling for the arrest and prosecution of Njiru for the dastard attack.
