The Directorate of Criminal Investigations has arrested a man accused of battering his wife over Ksh 500 in Eldoret.

Naftali Luzuli was arrested yesterday by the DCI after the issue was highlighted on Facebook and other Social Media pages.

He is accused of physically assaulting his 29 year old pregnant wife Valerie Masibo after she allegedly misused Ksh 500 he left her for supper.

Masibo suffered serious physical injuries on the face and was treated at the Moi teaching and referral hospital.

According to Masibo, her husband beat her for nearly two hours only for neighbours to hear her screams and alert the police.

“He came home drunk, locked the doors and started beating me with a shoe and stepping on me. I tried to protect myself but he was too strong. He started pouring cold water on me, undressed me and started beating me everywhere. He took a cooking stick and hit me everywhere,” she told the standard newspaper.

Luzuli is currently being held at the Ya Mumbi police post in Eldoret.
