A 23-year-old woman from Kajiado, Kenya is currently nursing wounds she suffered from a brutal beating allegedly orchestrated by her 85-year-old husband. Jane Sankei said her elderly husband ordered his sons to beat her for returning home late from a river. According to the area Assistant Chief and the woman herself, the suspects who were her husband’s sons who were all older than her, they beat her up and stripped her na ked in front of her young daughter.

After the beating, she picked up her child and ran straight to the home of the Assistant Chief who took a pity on the mother and child and gave them a place to sleep that night. The next day he took them to a nearby police station so she could make a report and write a statement and then to the hospital where her broken bones were treated and other parts of her body were treated as well.

A grassroots non-governmental organization known as ‘Networking for women’ has promised to help her seek justice against her husband and his sons.
