A Chuka Magistrate has sentenced a Kenyan man, James Kifo Muriuki who assaulted his wife and sealed her genitalia with super glue in May 2020 to 50 years in jail.
He was apprehended for the offence a few days later and remanded at Embu GK Prison ahead of trial.
Muriuki was charged with sexual assault, attempted murder, committing an unnatural offence and acting indecently against his wife.
In spite of refuting the charges, Muriuki was found guilty by Principal Magistrate Njoki Kahara of the Chuka Law Courts on December 23, 2022.
Muriuki reportedly returned to his Tharaka Nithi home after working in Nairobi for some time and confronted his wife.
He was said to have ordered her to get naked and reveal to him all the men she had affairs with while he was away.
He then hit her repeatedly, applied super glue on her genitalia and used a knife to push the mixture into her private parts. It was also alleged that Muriuki sealed her mouth and ears and left her for dead.
