Controversial lawyer Donald Kipkorir is angry, and speaking out.
This is after a story of an Eldoret man brutally beat up his wife, disfiguring her over a quarrel over sh500.
His wife Valerie Masibo is four months pregnant.
The man who was identified as Nafatali Lusuli, works at a slaughter house and had descended on the helpless woman beating her for three hours for allegedly misusing Ksh 500.
This action seems to have irked flamboyant Lawyer Don Kipkorir and he feels that the culprit should not even be taken to court, rather should be beaten to a pulp by the villagers.
This he posted through a tweet (below) that shows his displeasure at what Nafatali did to his wife.
Valerie was discharged and is recovering at her aunt’s house in Eldoret. She will remain under medical care.
The suspect was arrested in the house and held at the Yamumbi police station as he awaits his arraignment in Court.
Valerie and Lusuli have been married for five months. Valerie said
“This is about the fifth time the man has attacked me viciously but this time it was so serious I could not even see after the beating. I felt like I was dying, but I thank God I am alive and free from his brutality.”
She said the man, whom she started dating in March, arrived home last Friday at 6 pm and was very drunk. He accused Valerie of misusing the Sh500 he had given her for rent. Valerie said
“I still had the money and as I tried to show it to him he pushed me to the ground and started using his shoe and a cooking stick to beat me.”
The men then used a sharp object to cut off part of her ear, causing her to bleed profusely.
She screamed for help but the man locked the door from inside. The neighbours alerted police who arrived at the house but the man had escaped. He was arrested in the same estate.
Valerie said they had known each other for a short while but they decided to stay together when she learned she was pregnant.
She was taken to the police station to identify her attacker who pleaded with her to forgive him ,something she is not ready to do,she adds
“When he saw me, he could not believe that he was one who inflicted such injuries. He pleaded with me to forgive him but with the suffering I have gone through, I want the law to take its course.”
She said she would never return to her batterer and said she hoped that other women going through the same suffering receive help.
