Harare woman burnt her husband and their two-year old baby with a paraffin stove when she was caught red-handed cheating

A cheeky 31-year-old Harare woman has been arrested and charged for allegedly scalding her husband on the face and chest with a burning paraffin stove.
Mbare magistrate, Ms Shelly Zvenyika this week slapped Serah Yoko Musiiwa with a 20-day prison sentence with an option of US$50 fine for scalding her husband, Evidence Wilson Sithole (35), who had caught her walking with a boyfriend.
She was convicted for aggravated battery with great bodily harm in connection with the incident.
The prosecutor Tendayi Shonhayi told the court that on October 12, Musiiwa of number 10912 in Kuwadzana Extension was coming from the shops with an unidentified man when she bumped into her husband.
The husband who was acting on a tip off, intercepted the duo and questioned her wife who failed to give a satisfactory answer about the “strange man” she was walking with.
An argument erupted between the couple leading to a fist fight between the two men. As the fight raged on, Musiiwa fled from the scene. The boyfriend later fled the scene after being beaten by Sithole.
When Sithole went home, he had another altercation with his wife whom he poked on the forehead accusing her of cheating. This angered Musiiwa who picked up a burning paraffin stove and hurled it onto her husband who sustained serious burns on the face, chest, hands and a deep cut on the waist.
The couple’s two-year old baby was also burnt during the incident. Sithole later reported the case to the police leading to the arrest of his wife.
