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.
It later emerged that it was Stephen who was 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 son.
Jackline’s husband chopped off her limbs after he got wind that his wife had cheated on him. The desperate wife traveled to Machakos town to meet her secret lover who knocked her up.
Jackline’s 2-year-old son was unveiled when Merck Foundation CEO Rasha Kelej visited her at her home. Merck Foundation together with other NGOs helped Jackline after her limbs were chopped off.
She helped many people to change their perception of infertility. Although she was not the one with infertility problem – it was her husband.#NoForInfertilityStigma Proud that Merck Foundation has empowered me to help start her new life.~ Dr. Rasha Kelej, CEO of Merck Foundation. pic.twitter.com/0gqa8zCRbw
