In the photo believed to have been taken during her younger years, she looks beautiful, jovial and innocently anticipating to face life.
The photo paints a painful reality considering what Mwende is facing after her estranged husband, Stephen Ngila, chopped off her hands and hacked her head with a machete. Ngila committed the act accusing her of not bearing children after seven years of marriage.
Nonetheless, 27-year old Mwende has since forgiven her husband who is in police custody over the beastly act. She has, however, vowed never to love again.
”I will never love a man again, Even if I get a very nice man, I will not accept,” she said noting that she would rather stay with her parents who took care of her after the brutal attack.
A number of well-wishers and organisations have visited Mwende to offer aid and financial assistance after her plight hit headlines.
She will get a pair of electronic prosthetic limbs worth Sh10 Million that could see her resume normal duties in three months
