A woman identified as Fatuma Ibrahim was stabbed by her husband in the face during a family dispute according to a twitter user Modern Kenyan Corps.
It affected her bones and doctors at Wajir General Hospital said they could not remove the knife from Fatuma Ibrahim’s cheek because it may lead to complications.
They said chances were that the complications would endanger the life of the 32-year-old woman stabbed by her husband Mohamed Deeq.
Fatuma will be flown to Nairobi by Amref flying Doctors for treatment.
In an attempt at mediation before the stabbing, Deeq’s brother had confiscated knives and gone to a police station to seek assistance.
The police and medics secured Ibrahim in an ambulance in which she was rushed to the hospital.
The mother of four is scheduled to be airlifted to Nairobi for an operation at Kenyatta National Hospital.
