Tears and anguish gripped the Nakuru Provincial General Hospital after medics declared that a 30-year-old single mother of two will never see again after she had both her eyes gouged out in Eldama Ravine.

Opticians said that Norah Jepchirchir will never see again after the heartless act by unknown assailants who attacked her as she made her way home last Saturday evening.

The incident is said to have happened near Camp David, a few meters from the Eldama Ravine police station.

Dr. Kariuki said counselling for the mother of two had started to help her cope with her new and painful state even as friends and relatives tried to push the doctors to try harder and save her eyesight.

Norah, who says was rescued by police and rushed to Eldama Ravine sub-county hospital before being transferred to Nakuru for further medication is yet to come to terms with her new reality and pleaded with the government to come to her and her young family’s rescue.

“I will no longer see, they did not take my money but decided to pluck my eyes out,” she said as she cried and cursed the assailants. “I would rather they had even chopped my hands or legs.”

Speaking at the PGH Nakuru eye unit, medical officer in charge of the eye unit Benjamin Kariuki explained that every effort was done to rescue Norah eyesight but revealed that her eye balls had been gouged out.

Police in Koibatek said investigations had commenced but no arrests had been made by the time of going to press.
