Ngila, now 39, was given the sentence on Tuesday, February 9, after he was found guilty. He was however granted 14 days to appeal the ruling.

In her judgment, Machakos Law Court Justice Brenda Bartoo said the court had taken note the accused was not remorseful for the offense he was convicted of.

“The court notes that the offense committed was grave, and the victim in the statement does not wish for any restitution,” she outlined while giving factors that informed the term.

“Therefore I proceed and sentence you for the offense of attempted murder contrary to section 220(A) of penal code,” she added in her judgement.

Mwende told the court her husband chopped off her hands with a machete because she could not bear him children.
