In a shocking incident in Chitungwiza, a man set himself on fire in a desperate bid to win back his estranged wife.
The man, Godfrey Kaseke, 44, faced severe burns all over his body as a result of his actions.
The incident unfolded on Wednesday when Godfrey’s wife, Juliet Dzumbunu, made the tough decision to end their marriage and pursue a new relationship.
Despite Godfrey’s relentless pleas for reconciliation, Juliet remained firm in her resolve to move on.
Fuelled by anger and heartbreak, Godfrey allegedly came up with a distressing plan to confront his wife at her brother’s house.
Armed with a bottle of petrol, a kitchen knife, and a copper cable, he intended to harm her.
Terrified witnesses confirmed he strangled Juliet and threatened her with a knife. However, she managed to escape through a window.
The situation took a tragic turn when Godfrey ignited the petrol, setting himself ablaze that quickly engulfed the house.
Neighbours and passers-by rushed to help and put out the fire, but all the belongings inside were reduced to ashes.
Godfrey now battles for his life with severe burns, and authorities are investigating the incident.
Juliet’s family expressed disappointment at the lack of prompt response from Godfrey’s family following the disturbing event.
