Sunday, 29 January 2023 – A 43-year-old woman in Navakholio, Kakamega county, was on Saturday, January 28, 2023, arrested after she allegedly attacked her husband and set their house on fire.

Navakholo OCPD Richard Omanga said Florence Karakacha was arrested for giving her husband identified as Bramwel Lubanga a thorough beating for reportedly marrying a second wife.

The officers arrested the woman and booked her into custody pending arraignment in court.
