Man chops off wife’s ears for allegedly not listening to him


Police in Kericho have launched a manhunt for a man who allegedly chopped off his wife’s ears on May 8.

A scuffle ensued between the two, resulting in the suspect cutting off both of her ears, claiming she was disobedient.

Police said they have intensified the search for the suspect and will present him in court once he is arrested.

The incident shocked local residents, who noted that such a thing had never happened in their community.

The victim was taken to a local hospital where she is currently receiving treatment.

Meanwhile, police in Singor, Nandi District have launched an investigation after a 59-year-old man was hacked to death in a domestic dispute with his relative.
