Khadija to be airlifted to Nairobi for treatment

The 16 year old girl from Mandera who was burnt  and locked up for months by her husband will be airlifted to Nairobi later on Wednesday for specialised treatment.

Khadija has remained admitted at the Mandera district hospital since last week on Friday after she was rescued by a relative.

The girl who was married off at the age of 15 was burnt following a disagreement about 4 months ago.

A Mandera court is also expected to rule on her husband’s bail application.
