James Kifo taken arrives at Chuka GK Prison.

James Kifo Muriuki, a man who assaulted his wife has been slapped with a 50-year jail sentence by Chuka Law court. 

Appearing before Principal Magistrate Njoki Kahara, the suspect was found guilty of sexually assaulting his wife and causing grievous harm to her.

Kifo made headlines after causing harm to his wife on May 16, 2020.

On the fateful day, Kifo lured his wife to river Kathita in Marimanti at night, ordering her to strip naked and reveal to him all the men she had slept with while he was living away in Nairobi.

On being hesitant, Kifo began to beat her before he sprayed pepper, salt and super glue on her genitalia. He then used a knife to push the mixture into the victim’s genitalia.

In May 21, 2020, Kifo was arrested in his hideout at Kaningo in Kitui County by a combined team of DCI sleuths from Special Crime Unit, DCI Tseikuru and DCI from Tharaka South Sub County.

He was hiding in the house of one James Murogi who was believed to practice witchcraft.

The case has been going on since then with Kifo denying committing the offence.
