Faith Makau, a 20-year-old student at Kenya Utalii College, Kitui , is fortunate to be alive after she was stabbed multiple times in the abdomen by an jilted man after she turned down his dating request.
Faith and her supposed attacker, a 24-year man, fellowship at a local church in Mwingi.
He however lured her to his home where he submitted the egregious act.
“On my way to the shop, I met the suspect, who requested me to help him carry musical instruments to the church.
“I didn’t sense any danger, as it’s normal for members of the youth team to assist in church activities. I, consequently, agreed and accompanied him to his house,” she said.
At the point when they arrived at his home, he locked the door from inside and threatened her.
“He told me: ‘I have been expressing interest in you, but you always reject my advances. Today, I want to prove to you that if I won’t have you to myself, then no one else will”, she added.
He then, at that point picked a knife and stabbed her multiple times in the abdomen.
Neighbors acted to faith’s rescue when they heard the shouts and rushed her to Mwingi Level 4 hospital where she is going through treatment.
Her supposed assailant, was however beaten by angry neighbors and nearly killed before police showed up at the scene and saved him.
The said suspect sustained head wounds and is admitted at Kitui County Referral Hospital.
