Fatuma Ibrahim who was stabbed on the cheek by her husband with a knife has gone through a succesful surgery and is doing fine after surgeons at the Kenyatta National Hospital, Nairobi.
KNH Chief Executive Officer Lily Koros while addressing the media on Friday afternoon said the surgery was done on Ms Ibrahim at about midnight to remove the knife lodged in her skull after the attack. She said that the 32 year-old woman, who had to be airlifted to Nairobi from Wajir on Thursday night after being stabbed several times by her husband, was in stable condition. Apart from the knife in her face, the patient also suffered wounds on her thigh, abdomen and arms.
