Stephen Ngila jailed for 30 years for chopping off wife´s hands

A court in Machakos has sentenced Stephen Ngila to 30 years in prison for chopping off Jackline Mwende’s hands in 2016.

In May of 2016, Mwende who had been married to Ngila for two years, had her hands slashed with a machete at the wrist by her husband following a domestic squabble.

Appearing before Senior Magistrate Brenda Bartoo, Ngila was sentenced to 30 years in prison for attempted murder.

The magistrate said the victim did not need restitution due to the nature of the offence.

Mwende who also suffered deep cuts on her head inflicted by the spouse, said he was aggrieved by their childlessness.
