A six-month pregnant woman is receiving treatment at Nakuru Level Five Hospital after she set herself ablaze over a love gone sour.
Cythia Njoki is said to have poured kerosene on her body after picking a fight with her husband whom she had accused of having an illicit affair. The 28-year-old woman sustained 45 per cent burns on her hands, abdomen, thighs and face.
“My husband is a mechanic and over the weekend, he did not come home, confirming my fears that he was having a good time with his mistress,” she said.
Njoki, who lives in Langa Langa estate, said she was unable to comprehend why her husband was living a promiscuous lifestyle. “I was overwhelmed by anger, went into my bedroom where I set myself ablaze.”
