Malawi Police at Liwonde in Machinga district have arrested Oliva Kazembe for dousing her husband with hot water during a fierce brawl that ensued between the two.
Kazembe, police told Nyasa Times, scalded her husband, Mathews Kazizi, in retaliation to Kazizi’s violent conduct.
Kazizi sustained serious burns on his face, chest, berry, back and is currently admitted at Machinga District Hospital.
The woman, who admitted to pour the hot water on her husband, told law-enforcers that she was infuriated by her husband’s constant beating, adding he stole her cash amounting K25, 000.00.
Police have since charged Kazembe with Committing an Act Intended to Cause Grievous Harm contrary to Section 235 (A) of Penal Code.
