A Zimbabwe man is battling for his life after his jealous wife poured a pot of boiling water on him.
According to the report, Muradzikwa who is also a cancer patient, suffered severe facial burns and has been in hospital since the incident.
The attack reportedly occurred after a serious altercation at the couple's Chisamba Singles home in Sakubva, as the wife suspected that the man was still seeing his former wife behind her back.
Muradzikwa narrated that though they do not have any child together, his wife always suspected that he was still seeing and taking care of his former wife with whom he has two children.
“She has always been troubling me about my former wife. The thing is that I separated with my former wife and we had two children. There was really nothing going on between me and my former wife but somehow, my current wife suspected that I was cheating on her.
Each time she saw my former wife in the environs of our suburb, she would go mad and shout at me, accusing me of cheating on her with my former wife.
The problem is that I stay in Chisamba singles and my former wife stays in Old Chisamba and these are two areas near to each other, all in Sakubva, hence there is no way my former wife cannot be seen around my area.
On the day of the incident, I spent the day with my brother and my close friend. We were drinking beer near Perfect Bakery at Sakubva terminus. She was evidently angry at me that the two men I was drinking with suddenly left me, saying they could not stand the sight of a man who is being followed by his wife during a drinking binge.
We started quarrelling as she accused me of having bought something for my former wife. I tried to convince her that she was wrong but she could have none of it.
We went together home to try and solve the issue. It got worse upon arriving home. She started pushing and shoving me. When I tried to restrain her, she suddenly grabbed the pot which was on the stove and poured hot cooking oil over my face."
