A 27-year-old pregnant woman Cythia Njoki suffered burns to 45 per cent of her body after she set herself aflame over her husband’s alleged extra-marital affair.
Cynthia was reported to have suffered burns on her hands, thighs, face and abdomen while attempting to commit suicide in her home. She set herself ablaze after her husband failed to reveal where he spent the night on Saturday, August 13.
The pregnant woman disclosed that her husband, a mechanic, failed to return home that night and when he came on Sunday evening, he kept on calling a woman she suspected was having an affair with him. In anger, she went into their bedroom, poured kerosene on her body and set herself ablaze.
