The deceased who works in the Information and Communication department with the Zimbabwean police force discovered his wife's secret lovers after he cloned her WhatsApp account.
According to iHarare, Jala set himself on fire after seeing off his wife to the bus stop.
A source disclosed that both Jala and his wife, Sibongile Shana, were living happily up until a misunderstanding they had that involved relatives.
According to the source, "Jala discovered through WhatsApp web that Shana was cheating him with three different men and this did not go well with him and I want to believe this is the end result.
"Shana is reported to have been refusing to go for HIV tests and contact numbers of the three alleged men were shared with Jala’s brother.
"Neighbours tried in vain to gain entry into the locked house after they spotted smoke coming out of the house and women took turns to put out the fire. We are still to get to the bottom of the story."
It was also discovered that Shana opted to remain at her workplace even after hearing the news about her husband.
