In her own words, Mwende said that her husband came home, Chopped her hands off after accusing her of cheating on him.
"He came home and broke the door because I had refused to open it. I don't know what happened next because all I remember was me screaming at the top of my lungs in attempts to get my neighbors to help me after he cut off both of my hands. I remember we had a very dangerous dog that would protect me in times of danger and that's what he did started with. He killed it and fled after hearing my neighbors who came to rescue me ", she said.
