Ahadi gives battered man power saw

29 April 2013, 12:48 Wangui Joseph

Ahadi Kenya Trust Chief Executive officer Stanley Kamau on Saturday donated a power saw worth KES 70 000 to a man who was attacked and slashed by his wife at Mukurwe-ini in Nyeri County.

Simon Kiguta, 41, received the machine joyfully following his plea to join a working life after recovery.

During the last year’s saga that hit national headlines, Kiguta’s wife of 12 years Juliah Wairimu was accused of slashing his husband with a knife on the night of February 6, 2012.

In a separate interview, Kiguta had pleaded with well wishers to donate him a power saw since he has timber cutting skills.

With the machine, he said he will be able to earn a living and extend a helping hand to his two children living with his divorced wife.

However, Kiguta vowed neither to have Wairimu back to his house nor to marry soon.

During the merry event, he could not go without reinstating that he was not battled, but attacked unaware.

“I was not beaten by my former wife but I was attacked unaware in the dark. It can happen to anybody and people should not exaggerate the issue,” Kiguta stated.

He claimed that the estranged wife had a plan of killing him but failed.

“It is like she had gone berserk since I had not seen that before. Nowadays, I don’t even interact with ladies since the incident instilled fear in me,” he revealed.

However, Kamau said he was touched by Kiguta’s story and decided to chip in because he had shown interest in working and engaging in a meaningful life.

“Kiguta has now totally recovered ready to be integrated back with the society and I will be observing him,” Kamau said.

He added that within the next one year, Kiguta’s life will completely be different and he could be a social worker with his initiative.
