A pregnant woman is nursing serious stab wounds at Coast Provincial General Hospital (CPGH) in Mombasa following a botched murder by her husband.

Twenty four-year-old Susan Atieno is three months pregnant.

The man, 28-year-old Daniel Okello, took his own life after trying to kill his wife in a bizarre incident that stunned their neighbours at Sisi kwa Sisi in Changamwe.

She was stabbed four times in the chest, and other parts of her body, during the attack at about 1am on Tuesday.

SHOCK

When the Nation visited Ms Atieno at the hospital for an interview, she could not speak but doctors said tests confirmed the baby was alive.

She appeared shocked, likely because the man was the father of the child and because the foetus survived the vicious attack.

Neighbours said that a few minutes after they responded to Ms Atieno's cries for help, her husband's body was found hanging from a tree metres from their house.

Police reports stated the man fled from the house as his wife screamed for help then committed suicide.
