The Husband, who hails from Wajir East, appeared composed when brought to the courtroom which was packed with women and human right activists. He was accused of stabbing his wife on the cheek following a domestic squabble. Ibrahim, who was flown to Kenyatta National hospital on Thursday evening after the knife got lodged in her cheek, also suffered stab wounds to her thigh, abdomen and arms.
The doctors have already removed the knife after she was air-lifting to Nairobi by Amref. The attack went viral on social media as Kenyans called for justice via hashtag #justiceforfatuma, and the maximum sentence for Deeq.
