Githurai man with chopped manhood transferred to Gatundu hospital

A Githurai man whose manhood was chopped off by his angry wife was on Thursday referred to Gatundu district hospital.

The 32-year-old had on Tuesday walked himself to a nearby clinic after waking up to a bloody scene with a part of his manhood missing.

The decision to transfer him to Gatundu was made by his family who felt they needed to seek cheaper treatment and be closer to him.


The man needs reconstructive surgery.

His manhood was dismembered by his wife early Tuesday after he had denied her sex. The couple has been married for six years had quarreled the previous night.

The man’s wife is still on the run and even her parents who live in Embu have not heard from her since the incident.

When Nairobi News visited the man on Tuesday, he narrated how he had woken up at around 3 a.m. after feeling like he had wet the bed. To his horror, he was greeted by a bloody scene when he switched on the light, with a part of his manhood missing.

“I had taken a lot of alcohol the previous night so I felt like I had wet the bed. But when I reached out to touch the bed I felt something sticky like blood,” he narrated to Nairobi News.


“She had gone away for two days after we disagreed over the weekend, and when she came back on Monday, she said I must have sex with her to prove that I loved her,” he said.

The man refused to get intimate with her and instead gave her Sh1, 000 for their daughter’s school fee.

He then went to bed at around 10 p.m. leaving his wife still awake in the house.

The woman has gone missing since the incident. Her parents who live in Embu say they have not heard from her because her phone is off.
