The woman will serve 7 years in jail for the offence.
A man, Maxwell Chiwaya, 36, from Unyolo Village TA Chikumbu, Mulanje, in Malawi, is receiving treatment for injuries sustained from his stomach to pubic region, after his wife poured hot water on him.
According to reports, this was a reaction to the fact that her husband cheated on him. The woman, Juliet Chiwaya, 33, then handed herself over to the police following her violent action.
She has been charged with the offence of Act Intended to Cause Grievous Harm which would fetch her a penalty of 7 years Imprisonment with Hard Labour (IHL).
Juliet was said to have become furious when a source told her that her husband was seeing a woman, who he allegedly bought some items for.
This made the woman so angry to the extent that she poured hot water on Maxwell, who she had been married to for 14 years.
