Elsewhere, a 26-year-old woman is receiving treatment at a Budalangi medical clinic in Busia County after her cheek was allegedly bitten off by her co-wife.
The first wife, Melvina Akinyi, 26, claims her co-wife, Brenda Sanya, 29, stormed and attacked her in her house on Thursday 12 noon.
According to Akinyi, Sanya, who hails from Uganda, has often expressed jealousy toward her.
Akinyi claims, unlike her, who is a mother of three children (2 sons and 1 daughter), Sanya is yet to conceive for their husband.
And the victim claims Sanya confronted her when she was breastfeeding her last child, a daughter, before biting off her left cheek.
Their 36-year-old husband, a sand harvester, was at work when the incident happened.
Left bleeding profusely, Akinyi was taken to Budalangi Dispensary by neghbours.
Akinyi claims Sanya has often — in the past — attempted to attack her, but her efforts were thwarted.
Budalangi Dispensary medical officer, Leonard Barasa, says the patient is in a stable condition.
Police are looking for Sanya who remains at large.
