WATCH: Woman set ablaze for busting cheating husband

20 January 2016, 14:12

Nakuru - A 27-year old woman is nursing burn wounds she sustained after her husband set her ablaze over a text message.

Dorcas Awinja says that her husband of 10 years, Paul Alubale set her on fire after she discovered through a text message that he was cheating on her.

“His mobile phone rang twice but he did not want to answer even after I asked him to. Then a text message came and since he was drunk, I went to read,” she narrates, revealing that he was cheating with her brother’s wife.

She said they quarreled for a while, after which he went to sleep but when she joined him in bed, he doused paraffin on her and then lit a matchstick.

Neighbours who responded to her distress call forced the husband to take her to hospital.

While at Coptic Hospital in Luanda, Daily Nation reports that Alubale excused himself under the pretext that he was going to look for money only to call Awinja's father saying that she had attempted suicide.

He has since gone missing.

The incident, which took place in Vihiga County in September 2015 left Awinja with over 63% burns on the neck, arms, breast, thorax, abdomen, back and legs.

However, a video by K24 reveals that Awinja is recuperating well at the Nairobi Women’s Hospital Nakuru where she was transferred.
