Jackline Mwende shot to limelight in July 2016 when it was reported that her husband Stephen Ngila Nthenge had chopped off her limbs because she was barren, she couldn’t bear him a child after 7 years of marriage.
The 28 year old is now pregnant; apparently she had been cheating on her husband for a good reason. It’s now obvious Stephen was the one firing blank bullets.
Jackline was forced to stray out of her marriage because she desperately wanted a child; she had an affair with a friend who is the father of her unborn child.
In an interview with Nation, Jackline disclosed that she got pregnant a day before her husband attacked her. She revealed that she travelled to Machakos town on July 23 to meet her secret lover who knocked her up after spending a night together.
Jackline was battered the following day after her husband got wind of her debauched mission to Machakos, her neighbors were the ones who sold her out.

“I wanted a child. I was desperate and it is that yearning… and probably the devil too… that made me stray out of my marriage. But I did it so as to save my marriage.” Jackline told the Nation.
Jackline further said that she was not in contact with the father of her unborn child since they had only agreed that he impregnates her and they both move their separate ways.
