A 30-year-old woman is nursing wounds at Bishop Ceaser Asili Hospital in Luweero district following a machete attack by her husband. 

The machete victim is Jennipher Ajambo, a mother of six children and wife to Robert Masinde.  

She was rushed to Bishop Ceaser Asili Hospital on Thursday night in critical condition after being hacked by husband during a domestic brawl at their home in Kamira trading center in Luweero district.

She sustained severe injuries on head, stomach and hand. 

Ajambo told URN on her sickbed at Bishop Ceaser Asili Hospital that Masinde returned at home drunk and started quarreling as she was boiling tea with the children.   

According to Ajambo, she tried to calm him down but he responded by picking up a machete and attacked her. 

Ajambo explains that she tried to run with their six-month-old baby but Masinde followed them and hacked her several times until they were rescued by residents.

Residents rushed Ajambo to Kamira Health Center III on motorcycle where she was referred to Bishop Ceaser Asili hospital for treatment. 

The Kamira Village LC 1 Chairperson, Elizephan Wagaba, says reports from residents indicate that the fight started when Ajambo rejected Masinde’s sexual advances.
