According to Nairobi News, she conceived three days before her husband attacked her.
“A day earlier I had been spotted with the father of my unborn child. We had sought accommodation in Machakos town because I did not want to bring him to my matrimonial bed. It was on the Saturday, July 23, and after spending time with him, I went back home,
I lived alone because my husband had taken off three months earlier. On 24th, Ngila attacked me with the panga, forcing doctors to amputate both my hands,” said Mwende.
She added that she has no regrets for her relationship because she opted for this route out of a deep desire to bear a child.
Her plight caught national attention because it was an unprecedented attack in which a domestic violence case escalated to this point.
Machakos county first lady Lilian Nganga stood with her, in the end, helping her connect with people who would gift her with KSh 10 million (about N30m) electronic prosthetic arms.
On Tuesday, February 21, she received a four bedroom house and a fully stocked shop from a group of female parliamentarians in conjunction with an international company.
