Gweru Man Suffers Painful Death After Being Scalded With Boiling Cooking Oil By Irate Wife
In an alarming case of domestic violence, a Gweru man died after he was scalded with boiling cooking oil by his angry wife following a heated row over infidelity allegations.
The horrible incident occured in Gweru’s Hertfordshire Suburb on Monday.
iHarare has learned that the deceased has been identified as Alois Zaranyika.
The Chronicle reports that Zaranyika’s wife, Grace Mazhata left home to attend a church meeting over the weekend and only returned on Monday.
When Grace returned, her husband was not at home and this appears to not have gone down well with her. Alois returned home later the same day at around 8 PM.
Grace is alleged to have confronted him over some infidelity allegations and the misunderstanding quickly spiralled out of control. A furious Grace who seems to have made her preparations earlier on, then scalded her husband with cooking oil which had been heated on the stove.
Following the savage attack, Alois fled from his home and tried to seek refuge at a neighbour’s house. However, Grace who was on the warpath armed herself with a log and followed him there.
She used the log to assault her injured husband, who found it hard to defend himself due to the horrible burns that he had suffered from the boiling cooking oil.
Grace was relentless in her attack and only stopped after she was physically restrained by the neighbours. The neighbours then rushed Zaranyika to Gweru Provincial Hospital for urgent medical attention. Unfortunately, he died two days later.
After realising the gravity of her actions, Grace fled from her home and went into hiding in Harare. However, the police were able to track her down. She was apprehended on Thursday and is expected to appear in court soon.
The case was confirmed by Midlands Provincial police spokesperson Inspector Emmanuel Mahoko. Inspector Mahoko told the Chronicle,
“Police tracked down the wife in Harare to where she had fled. She is now assisting the police with investigations.”
