The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

A 43-year-old man yes­ter­day pleaded guilty to stab­bing his wife in the leg after a quar­rel over their teenage daugh­ter. Caterer Ni­cholas Oloo in­jured Lil­lian Atieno on May 3 in Koro­go­cho slum. The pros­e­cu­tion said Oloo ar­rived in the house in the evening from work and found Atieno watch­ing news. Min­utes later, he re­ceived a call from his brother about his daugh­ter who was up­coun­try for med­i­cal treat­ment. The court heard that after end­ing the call, Oloo started quar­rel­ing Atieno over the daugh­ter. He ques­tioned where she left the child as he had re­ceived in­for­ma­tion she had been chased away from the neigh­bour’s home. Atieno said ev­ery­thing was okay as she had talked to the neigh­bour. Oloo took a panga and cut Atieno’s leg. She was rushed to hos­pi­tal un­con­scious and ad­mit­ted for a month. Oloo pleaded with prin­ci­pal mag­is­trate Eve­line Ol­wande for a le­nient sen­tence. Oloo will be sen­tenced on Septem­ber 28.
