In a shocking encounter, a husband has sliced his wife's womb open with a kitchen knife for not giving him a child. The sudden incident took place after he found out that she was barren. According to Daily Sun SA, during one of their many fights, he slashed her stomach, leaving her intestines hanging out! Then he tied her to a chair and left her for dead. Luckily, neighbours rescued her three days later. Today, the 28-year-old woman from Block MM in Soshanguve, north of Tshwane, South Africa, lives in fear. She wakes up every night in a cold sweat, unable to forget the horror. “I want justice,” she said.
The woman narrated how the whole incident started and how she miraculously escaped death. According to her, she met her 45-year-old husband in 2013 in Ivory Park in Tembisa, Ekurhuleni. They got married the same year. She said he soon started drinking heavily and became abusive. “On New Year’s Day in 2014, he beat me and pointed a gun at me. On 20 January that year, he stabbed me in the stomach. My intestines were hanging out. He tied me to a chair and kept me in the house for three days,” she said.
However, she was saved by a four-year-old child who entered the room and screamed which alerted neighbours who eventually called the police. She spent 18 months in the hospital. “I need help. I’m living a life of misery. I’m always in pain and I can’t sleep because I have nightmares of him chasing me with a knife.”
The woman opened a case at Tembisa Police Station in September but later withdrew it. When called for comment, the husband said: “Ungangitsheli amasimba” (don’t talk shit).
Gauteng police spokesman, Captain Tsekiso Mofokeng advised the woman to report the case.
