Police are looking for a man who attacked his estranged wife with a hammer and a knife last night, before fleeing leaving her unconscious in a pool of blood.
Caren Namubuya, 29, who was stabbed on the chest and hit on the head severally with a hammer, is lucky to be alive and is recuperating at the Lunga Lunga Sub-County hospital in stable condition.
Preliminary investigations indicate that the two had separated before the attacker James Kimeu, 35, invited Namubuya to his house in a bid to reconcile. However, Kimeu locked the main door with a padlock and turned on her savagely, with a kitchen knife and a hammer.
Neighbours who heard the commotion forcefully gained entry into the house and found the victim lying on the floor in a pool of blood.
The man who is a teacher at Menzamwenye primary school however managed to escape, and detectives have since launched a manhunt for him.
