A 27-year old pregnant house wife is recuperating in the hospital from burns she suffered after setting herself ablaze when she learnt of her husband infidelity.
The 27-year old pregnant woman, Cynthia Njoki was said to have doused herself with kerosene and lit herself over her husband’s alleged extra-marital affair.
Cynthia was reported to have suffered burns on her hands, thighs, face and abdomen while attempting to commit suicide in her home.
She set herself ablaze after her husband failed to reveal where he spent the night on Saturday, August 13, a source said
The pregnant woman disclosed that her husband, a mechanic, failed to return home that night and when he came on Sunday evening, he kept on calling a woman she suspected was having an affair with him.
In anger, she went into their bedroom, poured kerosene on her body and set herself ablaze.
The shout of her husband attracted people to the scene and helped to put out the fire and thereafter she was rushed to the hospital.
