The police report detailed that the woman in anger pounced on the man and bit off his left ear before it fell to the ground.
Seeing his ear on the ground, Karanja picked it up and carefully carried it in a paper bag to the hospital for treatment.
The man was told to seek further treatment at another hospital in Eastland, where he was told that the ear was utterly damaged and needed plastic surgery after three months of treatment.
Meeting to solve domestic trouble
The couple had earlier in the day organised a meeting at a local joint to discuss their differences after Karanja accused her of infidelity.
The two could not resolve their fight, and Ochero opted to call okada to take her home in Kawangware. The decision by Karanja to hand her KSh 100 (N365) note as transport made matters worse.
Already agitated by the accusation of having an affair and being given KSh 100 (N365) as fare, Ochero decided to bite Karanja, severely damaging his ear.
Citizen Digital reports that Mwaniki directed that she be released on KSh 300,000 (N1m) and the matter be mentioned on Wednesday, March 16.
