This Woman is hacked by husband for refusing to share her salary, another over custody of their child...(video/photos)
Two Kenyan women are currently receiving treatment at the Nyahururu County Referral hospital after they were attacked by their husbands in separate incidents.
32-year-old Zipporah Wanjugu (left) is nursing serious injuries on both hands and head, which she sustained after her husband attacked her with a panga (large knife) on Wednesday night, August 3rd at their home in Wiyumiririe village in Laikipia County.
Vivian Moraa, 23 (right) a labourer at Suera Flowers Company, claims her husband picked a panga and told her that he would chop off her hands ‘just like the other lady who was on TV'.
The resident of Suera area on the outskirts of Nyahururu town sustained serious head injuries after being battered by her husband because she refused to share her wages with him.
"After receiving my wages, I went home with household goods I bought from Nyahururu town and that angered my husband. He said that it was wrong for me to buy household goods and yet he had no money," she said.
"I separated from him two months ago only for him to storm into my rented house and take away the baby without uttering a word. I finished my work and went to pick the baby so that I could breastfeed him only for him to start insulting me before picking a panga which he used to attack me," she said.
The mother of four woke up to find herself in a hospital bed and later fell unconscious. A police officer at Ndaragwa police station who arrested the man said the attacker had poison in his pocket during the time of the arrest.
"After the incident was reported to us, we rushed to the scene and arrested the man. He had tried to commit suicide because he had poison in his pocket," said a police officer.
The victim claimed that the man had turned her into the sole breadwinner for their four children, adding that he had threatened her on several occasions saying he wanted both of them dead.
A doctor at the facility said that the two women are out of danger, but Ms Wanjugu’s left hand had been severely damaged.

A 55-year-old man has been arrested after he allegedly married a girl who was just six years old - in return for a goat.
Seyed Abdolkarim was taken in by officers after police were told he had married the child, named only as Gharibgol, in a religious ceremony.
The child was reportedly sold by her father who was also arrested by police after they claimed he exchanged her for the goat, along with rice, tea, sugar, and cooking oil.
He said he had been struggling to look after the family, and that exchanging his daughter meant he gained food and lost a mouth to feed.
The footage above was taken by Fawad Ahmady working for The Observers , and shows the arrest of Gharibgol’s father in his village as local women attacked him and beat him up.
He said that Abdolkarim had promised he wouldn't sleep with Gharibgol until she was 18.
Following the marriage, the respected imam Abdolkarim was said to have taken his new wife to a relative's house in Firozkoh, in Ghor province, as his daughter.
But they became concerned when they realised "he was undressing her at night" according to the report.
Mr Ahmady writes: "So he asked the mullah, 'she’s not your daughter?'
"The mullah replied, 'no, she’s my wife; her father gave her to me'. The host told a friend, who called the local women rights bureau for Ghor province."
Tests carried out by the hospital in Ghor show that "there was no sexual intercourse".
The child is currently being housed in a safe location with her mother.

"On my way back from my sister's place, I passed by the market. It was raining seriously, so much that I was seriously feeling feverish. It was 15minuits past seven and I was rushing home.
On my way a man stopped the taxi i was in and begged the driver to help take a little girl who has been under the rain selling groundnuts. She was shivering seriously and couldn't walk. She almost fainted so the people around had to put her in a taxi cos she was walking home under the very heavy rain. Fortunately she was going my way so i offered to drop her at the junction were she lives. Getting there, it was still raining cats and dogs so i took her under a shelf away from the rain. I was curious to know why a parent will expose their child to such. I asked her some questions and she said she was 5years, left the house for the market in the morning to sell. I asked her what she ate and she said she drank just garri in the morning. Where is your mum i asked,and she said her mum was home doing nothing. How can parents be so irresponsible? This is child abuse. Exposing this little girl to such. I got her something to eat,and then took her home. Only to discover that she was actually staying with her father's wife. #live happening here in yenagoa this evening.# #may God help
