Irate wife slices hubby’s face …as she gorges out his eye with broken bottle

A LUSAKA woman has been jailed two years for slicing out her husband’s eye using a broken bottle in a wee hours drinking spree.

Lusaka Magistrate Judith Chiyayika on Tuesday sent Gwendolyn Kabesa, 27, to prison after finding her guilty of one count of unlawfully wounding Andrew Muyoma, a police officer of Matero Township.

The incident happened on April 18, 2019 around 02:00 hours outside Porps night club located opposite Matero police station.

According to the 29-year-old Mr. Muyoma, on April 17, 2019 he went to Florida Street, notoriously known as Devil Street in Emmasdale area, to watch football after which his two friends and Kabesa joined him in drinking beer.

He said after midnight they moved to Porps and before they could get inside he told his friends that he wanted to go home but Kabesa argued against the idea of abandoning the drinking binge as she did not want him to leave.

“Shortly after that she got a solid bottle and hit me on my left chick and it eventually broke. She then started slicing my face using the same broken bottle and I sustained multiple cuts on my face.

“I asked her why she had done that but she pounced on me again and stabbed me on my eyes. There and then my friends took me together with her to the police where I was issued with a medical report and she was detained,” Mr. Muyoma said in his statement to the police.

He was later admitted to University Teaching Hospital where he was operated on after some days and one of his eyes had to be removed because it was completely damaged.

And an eyewitness Justine Malama said on the material date he saw Mr. Muyoma and Kabesa going into Porps and that they seemed to be arguing but a door bouncer chased them out of the club.

Mr. Malama said the couple continued arguing outside and a fight ensued. He said Kabesa then got a solid bottle, broke it, and started pricking the victim on his face.

He said upon seeing that Mr. Muyoma was bleeding profusely, he stopped the fight and some people at the scene took Kabesa and her husband to Matero police station.
