A man has done the unthinkable after accusing his wife of cheating with another man. The man got angry and burnt himself beyond recognition last week. He died on the spot.
NewZimbabwe reported that the shocking incident took place in Bonde village in Zimbabwe under Chief Muusha.
Speaking about the incident, Manicaland police spokesperson, Inspector Tavhiringwa Kakohwa said the deceased, Steward Chingore, aged 23, had a heated dispute with his wife Itai Mahosa, 20, whom he suspected to be having an extra marital affair with a local man.
“The couple tried to discuss the matter on their own.
“Around 2300hrs on the same day, the husband went back to their matrimonial home and entered into his bedroom. He locked the door with a wire and set the hut on fire.” said Inspector Kakohwa.
The matter was reported to police who attended the scene and retrieved the burnt corpse.
“Couples should seek professional from elders in their respective communities. Resorting to suicide is not a solution to overcome challenges in life,” said Kakohwa.
