When the victim was weak and helpless from the knife wound on her right lower shoulder, Kwaimani transported her to the National Referral Hospital.
Public Solicitor’s lawyer, Michael Holara said his client and the victim lived together again after she was released from hospital.
He said according to the medical brief, there are no serious injuries.
