Fatuma Ibrahim who was allegedly stabbed on the cheek by her husband
with a knife that went through her skull is making a slow but sure
recovery after surgeons at the Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH)
performed a successful operation on her.
KNH Chief Executive Officer Lily Koros while addressing the media on
Friday afternoon said the surgery was done on Ms Ibrahim at about
midnight to remove the knife lodged in her skull after the attack.
She said that the 32 year-old woman, who had to be airlifted to Nairobi
from Wajir on Thursday night after being stabbed several times by her
husband, was in stable condition. Apart from the knife in her face, the
patient also suffered wounds on her thigh, abdomen and arms.
