A 32-year-old pregnant Kenyan woman, who chopped off her husband’s penis on Friday, has been arrested.

Pauline Mukiri was arrested at Kiembeni Estate in Mombasa, eastern Kenya on Saturday evening and was being held at the Bamburi police station.


Mukiri attacked Alloys Matata at a local bar, where sources said he was having a good time with another woman, Daily Nation reported.

When they got home that evening, she chopped off his penis and left him for the dead.

Matata was rescued by neighbours who rushed him to the hospital, but he later died.

The couple had been staying together for a year, according to Citizen TV.

Mukiri insisted she was acting in self-defence.
