Winnie Mutheu narrowly escaped death from an angry mob of neighbours who were informed that she had allegedly chopped off the genitals of her one-year-old boy.
The suspect, Winnie Mutheu- who’s being sort by the police fled after committing the act on Thursday.
The one year old boy is currently nursing serious injuries at the Kijabe Mission Hospital where he was admitted.
Here is the young boy’s aunt explaining what transpired in the most heinous act a mother would,let alone do, think of against his son.
“He asked his wife why their son was crying and she answered that the boy had broken his leg while playing with other children outside the house. My brother then decided to examine his son, only to find no injuries on either of his legs. He went on to remove his son’s clothes and discovered that he had been physically abused,” the aunt said.
The couple has lived together for five years and are blessed with two children. There were no reports of conflict between the two couple ,who’ve lived together for 5 years, when the boy was assaulted.
“The child is still in hospital in critical condition,” the aunt said.
Tigoni Sub County Police Commander Mwaniki Ireri said a manhunt for the woman has been launched.
“The case was officially reported yesterday by the boy’s father. We are pursuing the mother, and we are confident that we shall find her,” said Mr Ireri.
Efforts to get a comment from Kijabe hospital were futile as our calls and text messages went unanswered.
