A family of a woman who was attacked and left for dead by her spouse in Naivasha is crying foul over failure by police to arrest the culprit.

The family from Mai Mahiu has expressed their fears as the suspect continued issuing threats a week after attacking his former wife and seriously injuring her on the hands and head.

The victim Agnes Njeri was attacked a week ago and was seriously injured on her hands and head before she was left lying in a pool of blood.

Narrating her ordeal, Njeri said that the suspect was demanding back two children they had sired together or that they reunite.

She told how the suspect waylaid her on her way home, slashing her on the hands and head before leaving her for the dead.

“He has vowed that he will kill me and members of my family and that is why I am seeking justice and his arrest,” she said on Thursday amid pain.

Her sister Rachel Wanjiru said that the attack and threats had left the family in fear with their mother developing high blood pressure.

She said that they had been forced to camp in their home to protect the mother and her recuperating sister as there were possibilities that the suspect would attack again.

“We no longer have peace in this homestead because of one man and despite reporting to the area police station no action has been taken,” she said.

Another family member Virginia Waithera narrated how the suspect once raided their home and threatened to kill their mother and the two children he is claiming ownership to.

“This man was once married to our daughter but they parted ways due to his violent behaviours and he has not stopped this and all we are asking for is his arrest,” she said.

This was echoed by a village elder Mburu Muigai and a boda boda operator Samuel Kamau who termed the suspect as dangerous and a threat to the family of his former wife.

But speaking on phone, Naivasha OCPD Samuel Waweru promised to take up the matter personally adding that no one was above the law.

“The issue has been raised with my office and I shall liaise with the Mai Mahiu OCS so that lawful action can be taken,” he said.
