TWO Bulawayo women baptised each other with boiling water in a fight over their married lover.
The two small houses were both critically injured, with one nursing serious burns and the other a seriously burnt hand.
The saga began when the married man, Sipho Ndlela allegedly invited Sijabulile Ncube over to his house for a night of passion, but their joy was short lived when Precious Sibanda arrived unexpectedly resulting in a fist fight breaking out between the two women.
A source that happens to be Ndlela’s neighbour told B-Metro that they were surprised to see the two women fighting and he was nowhere in sight after he sought refuge at a neighbour’s house fearing that the women would gang up on him.
“Ndlela has never had a problem juggling these two women as he always found a way to make sure they do not meet.
On that day Sibanda paid him a surprise visit and found him in a compromising position with Ncube and a fight broke between the two women.
When Ncube realised she was being overpowered she poured boiling water on Sibanda who sustained injuries and Ncube also burnt her hand,” said the neighbour.
Ndlela’s wife resides at their rural home.
“She is probably not aware that such an incident happened. It would have made sense if the wife had caused the scene but it is his two girlfriends instead,” she said.
He confirmed that there was a fight at his home but it was resolved.
“I wonder why people love sticking their nose in other people’s business. There was a fight in my house and I resolved the issue. Whoever told you should learn to mind their business,” he said.
Sibanda shared his sentiments saying that they had resolved the issue and that they all had made peace.
“I have nothing to say to you, we have resolved our issues and we are now at peace,” concluded Sibanda.
