Man charged with assault over ‘theft’ of child’s umbilical cord
A man has been charged with assaulting his neighbour, claiming she had stolen his child’s umbilical cord. Robert Ndung’u allegedly beat up Mary Wanyonyi and injured her on September 27 at Kinyago slums in Kamukunji. The prosecution reports indicate the suspect and his wife quarreled and she packed her bags and put them in Wanyonyi’s house. After some time, the two reconciled and she went to pick her bags from Wanyonyi’s house. Police said Wanyonyi was not in the house at the time. When she came back from work, the suspect’s wife claimed the umbilical cord that was in her bag was missing. Wanyonyi said she did not see it.
