A Lari woman cut her husband's manhood with a panga following what she reportedly termed a suspicious call about her with a stranger.
The 49-year-old, said his wife attacked him after a villager called him to report that he had collected her lost phone.
A medic told The Star that his penis, testicles, urethra and nerves were injured but he was in stable condition. The exact nature of his injuries was not disclosed.
"Somebody called to tell me he had collected a phone resembling hers. She heard me talking about her lost phone and demanded to know what I was discussing about her with a stranger," the man said from his hospital bed.
He said they ended up fighting.
“I overpowered her and she fell down. I stopped beating her but it was at that moment that our son hit me on the head with a panga and I fell. She then took the panga and cut my private parts."
The victim said that when he regained consciousness, he was bleeding and in great pain.
Some neighbours took him to a clinic, from where he was transferred to a hospital, while others arrested his wife and took her to the police station.
Area acting OCPD Stanley Mutungi said the suspect will be arraigned after investigations.
“We will seek four days to complete investigations," he said.
