Mary Kamunda, a woman caught cheating with another’s husband in the Budiriro region of Zimbabwe, is currently battling for her life in a hospital, after literally being ‘fried’ her with hot cooking oil.
MyZimbabwe reports that on the night of the incident, Zorodzai Nyabadza, the angry wife had returned from a journey abruptly and unannounced only to enter her bedroom to hear moaning sounds from her bedroom.
Nyabadza tiptoed to the window where she peeped in and saw her husband on top of another woman on their matrimonial bed.
Nyabadza is reported to have quietly made her way to the kitchen to boil some cooking oil and entered bedroom where she met the exhausted Kamunda and emptied the oil on her, resulting in severe burns on her breasts, face and neck.
Nyabadza has since been arrested and appeared before an Harare Magistrates’ Court where she pleaded guilty to assault.
The presiding judge, Magistrate Elijah Makomo, promptly sentenced her to 12 months imprisonment with six months being suspended for five years on condition of good behaviour, while the remaining six months allocated to 210 hours of community service.
