DAILY POST: JACKLINE MWENDE ditches her Ksh10 million ‘expensive to maintain’ prosthetic limbs donated to her two years ago.




Tuesday,
December 18, 2018-
Remember Jackline Mwende,
the 29-year-old woman from Machakos County who came to the
limelight in 2016 after her husband chopped off her limbs because she couldn’t
give birth after seven years of marriage?

Her ordeal sparked
outrage after it emerged that it was the husband who was firing blank shots.
Well, two years down
the line, Mwende has ditched the Ksh 10 million artificial limbs which were
donated to her by LG Electronics.
Speaking during an interview
with K24, she said the prosthetic limbs are too “expensive to maintain” since
they have to be flown to South Korea where she was fitted.
“The limbs were to be
flown to South Korea for maintenance recently, and that comes at a cost. I
currently do not have the money they are asking for. 



“So, I decided to ditch the
arms because they are not of help to me,” said Ms Mwende
.
She
currently runs a small scale business at her home in Kathama Village, Machakos
County and gets Ksh25, 000 monthly stipend from German NGO, 
Merck
More Than a Mother.
 
The
NGO also built Ms Mwende a 3-bedroomed house and a mini-mart.
