A woman whose hand was chopped off in Kuria West two weeks ago is living in fear as the man accused of committing the crime is still at large.

Maria Rioba Musa, who hails from Taranganya village, lost her left hand after her husband allegedly chopped it off with a machete on January 18.

Mrs Musa explained that her husband got angry when she delayed to prepare his evening meal on time having arrived home late from a burial of her relative.

Ms Musa also sustained deep cuts on her stomach and head.

The suspect is yet to be arrested two weeks after the woman reported the incident at Kehancha Police Station.

Kuria West OCPD Benson Kyalo said the police are still searching for the suspect who is said to have escaped to Tanzania.
