Woman bites off husband's lip,over transport fare
A lady has bitten off the lower lip of her husband during a domestic disagreement in Kenya.
According to the 34-year-old husband, Benson Onsongo, the quarrel began when his 27-year-old wife informed him that she wanted to go visit her parents in Kisii County.
He said the wife asked him for money to travel to their home for an event but he had none. This angered her and she threatened to commit suicide.
Mr. Onsongo added that, on Monday evening, while he was at work, he was informed that the woman was about to end her life by jumping into a nearby river.
He stated that he rushed to the scene and talked her out of it, but on their way back home, she turned and bit off his lower lip before also biting his hand and stomach.
Mr Onsongo claimed his wife of four years has been subjecting him and their four children to violence.
“I picked up my lip from the ground and put it in a polythene bag, hoping that it would be reattached at the hospital but I have been told it is not possible. This is so inhumane... I cannot imagine that the woman I loved could do such a thing to me,” he added.
