A six-month pregnant woman is receiving treatment at Nakuru Level Five Hospital after she set herself ablaze over 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 leading a promiscuous lifestyle. “I was overwhelmed by anger, went into my bedroom from where I set myself ablaze,” she said.
