A Makueni man filmed assaulting his wife appeared in court and pleaded guilty to a charge of causing grievous harm.
On Friday, David Nzomo was arraigned before Senior Principal Magistrate James Mwaniki.
He pleaded guilty to grievously harming his wife Winfred Mwende, who was hospitalized at the Makueni County Hospital.
A video of him brutally assaulting the 35-year-old Mwende (shown below), saw the Director of Public Prosecutions order for his arrest.
According to Mwende, the man started to become violent towards her in 2013 when he married a second wife.

Speaking from her hospital bed, the mother of three narrated her ordeal at the hands of the man she has been married to for over 15 years.
“When I inquired why he was assaulting me, he said he wanted me dead, warning me against screaming for help,” she said Mwende.
The Makueni man was arrested a day later after residents disclosed his location to the police.
Despite him pleading guilty, the Prosecutor Eunice Gitai has asked for more time to table the Victim Impact Report.
She requested for seven days but the court granted her four days to table the report.
The case will be mentioned on August 8 while the Makueni man remains in remand prison.
