Kisumu neighbor slashed a house girl in an apartment with a machete after a row over a hanging line.
Berine Achieng was doing her chores as usual. She did her laundry and hanged those clothes on their balcony.
Their neighbor’s concern was that the dripping wet clothes were causing a foul odour in her bedroom.
Given that she had nowhere to hang those clothes, Berine Achieng ignored her and continued with her chores.
The irrate neighbor went inside her house and flashed out a sharp machete. She attacked her sustaining cut wound on her arm.
Chest thumbing perpetrator, Grace Aketch, dared them to report her to the police because nothing will happen to her.
According to Grace Aketch, she got connections and reporting her to the authorities is an exercise in futility.
Grace Aketch is the head of Gender based Violence in Kisumu county but she is the one instigating that violence on people.
Because she knows how the system works, she was the first to run to the police to report of trespass and physical abuse.
They captured the whole incidence on camera as the machete wielding Grace threatened to kill Berine Achieng.
Jael, who is the employer of Berine Achieng, took her for treatment and reported the incidence to Mamboleo police station.
She, however, fears that she might not get justice from the police, given the threats they have been receiving.
She is yet to get her p3 form signed at the Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and referral hospital.
Berine and her employer Jael hope Kenyans will help them get justice by sharing her videos.
