A Kenyan man has been caught on video beating up his pregnant wife for allegedly stealing his money.
The video which was aried by KTN News, shows the man identified as John Wachira, beating his 22-year-old pregnant wife, Justa Kawira, leaving her hospitalised after she bled heavily and passed out.
The cause of the fight, according to KTN News, was an accusation by Wachira that Kawira stole some amount of money he left at home.
Speaking of the beating she got from her husband, Kawira said Wachira claimed he could not find his money inside the house after he arrived home drunk.
"I told him I did not steal any money but he started beating me until I fled to a friend's house, before returning on Monday after he left for work."
Kawira's mother, Anne, said she had tried in vain over the years to get her daughter out of the abusive relationship.
" I have tried and tried but now, this cannot happen again. It must end now," Anne said.
The police have arrested Wachira and later released him on bail, pending investigations into the matter.
