A man from Gutu who was caught with a picture of his curvy girlfriend in his memory card has suffered 30% burns after his wife poured boiling water on him.
Mavis Kweteza (28) was sentenced to an effective 12 months in jail for physically abusing her husband.
Kweteza of Chinasire Village under Chief Mataruse in Gutu poured boiling water on her husband William Matenga (31). She told magistrate Victor Mohamadi last week that she was angry when she saw the picture and she was retaliating to that.
It was the State case led by Kudakwashe Muza that on October 26, 2018 at around 4pm Kweteza discovered a picture of Matenga’s curvaceous girlfriend in his memory card and a misunderstanding arose between the two to the extent that Kweteza barred her husband from going to look for piece jobs.
On December 6 2018, Matenga eventually went to Harare to look for a job and came back on December 26 at around 6pm. However, as he slept Kweteza poured boiling water on him.
Medical reports indicate that Matenga suffered 30% burns.
