Photo: Woman battered by ex-husband for not answering his phone calls
A woman in Kawangware, Nairobi was left without a tooth and broken arm after her ex-husband beat her up. Lydia Nyanchama, a private school teacher said Stephen Omondi, a mechanic based in Westlands, on Sunday, January 17, beat her for not answering his phone calls.
In an interview, she narrated the cause of her action :
“I had gone for an outing in Dagorettion Saturday when he called but I did not not answer because he chased me from his house in 2014 without a clear reason,” Nyanchama said.
A woman who teaches at Light of God school, a school close to her house, said she found Omondi waiting outside her house when she returned the following morning, that after beating her, he threatened to return and kill her.
Nyanchama said she went to Mercy mission hospital in Kawangware for treatment and reported the assault at Muthangari police station. She was given a P3 form but has asked police to quicken investigations and arrest the man as she fears for her life.
Omondi accepted the accusation saying he beat Nyanchama because he supports their child yet found her in a pub with another man.
