A man allegedly tried to hack off his wife’s breast and then sliced off his own penis on Valentine’s Day after accusing her of cheating with his brother.
Duncan Moseti, 24, attacked his wife Margaret with a knife as she lay sleeping and threatened to kill their baby, before cutting off his manhood and throwing it out the window, it was reported.
Margaret, 20, said she was woken up by a pain in her chest and saw her husband bending over her with a knife. She said:
“At around 3am, I woke up after I felt a sharp pain in my chest. On checking, I saw my husband cutting my left breast with a knife. I pushed him away and screamed for help. He then threatened to kill our baby.”
The accusations came after the couple, who have been married for two years, moved in with Moseti’s brother George a week ago. The mother, who has a one-year-old girl, said she had been confronted by her husband the night before about the suspected affair. Speaking from her hospital bed, she added:
“He told me to leave him and get married to his brother since he was more financially stable, adding that he would do something that would make us all regret in our lives.”
Senior nurse Gladys Wanjau of Thika Level 5 Hospital, in Thika in Kenya, said:
“His private parts cannot be re-attached back to their place since he took long to get medical attention from the time he chopped them off.”
Moseti is now “stable” in hospital following reconstructive surgery to let him pass urine and Margaret is out of danger.
Moseti’s brother has denied having an affair with Margaret. He said:
