NAIROBI, Kenya, Feb 27- Police are pursuing a jilted woman who killed her husband after attempting to chop off his genitals in Bamburi, Mombasa.
The man sustained deep cuts on his private parts and died of excessive bleeding on Saturday morning.
Kisauni police boss Richard Ngatia said the man was rescued by neighbours who intervened and rushed him to a private hospital but it was too late.
It is reported that the woman went into hiding soon after the attack after being alerted that police were pursuing her.
According to neighbours, the two picked a fight after the woman caught the husband with another woman at local pub on Friday night.
“Upon reaching the house the woman grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed the husband several times including his private parts,” neighbour Hanningtone Ochieng said.
Neighbours rushed to the scene of crime on hearing his cries for help. “His body was lying on a pool of blood when we arrived,” the neighbour added.
Ngatia said officers are still looking for the woman who is still at large.
It’s understood the couple’s marriage has faced a rough patch in the past.
