    A Kenyan woman, Zainab Ochero has been arrested and arraigned in court for biting off her lover’s ear during a domestic dispute.

    Zainab from Kawangware, Nairobi county, was said to have carried out the act when her boyfriend, Joseph Karanja, gave her KSh 100 (N370) as transport back home.

    She appeared before Kibera Senior Principal Magistrate Charles Mwaniki on Tuesday, March 1, and pleaded not guilty to the charges of causing severe injuries to Karanja at Kangemi in Nairobi on Monday, February 21, Nairobi News reports.

    According to police report, the accused was displeased with the transport fare, so she pounced on her man and bit off his left ear in anger causing it to fall to the ground.

    Rather than panic or cry out, the man then picked it up, carefully placed it in a paper bag and went to the hospital for treatment.

    Unfortunately, the hospital could not stitch it back, so he was told to seek further treatment at another hospital in Eastland.

    On getting to another hospital, Karanja was made to realise that the ear was utterly damaged and needed plastic surgery after three months of treatment.

    The unfortunate biting incident occurred earlier in the day when the couple organised a meeting at a local joint to discuss their differences after Karanja accused her of infidelity.

    They could not resolve their fight, and Ochero opted to call a motorbike to take her home. But Karanja’s decision to give her KSh 100 (N370) as transport made matters worse.

    Already agitated by the accusation of having an affair and being given KSh 100 as fare, Ochero decided to bite Karanja, severely damaging his ear.

    The judge directed that she be released on KSh 300,000 (N1million) and the matter be mentioned on Wednesday, March 16.
