A woman identifed as Alice Chigwida, bathed her husband with hot water for coming home late and failing to pick her from St Mary’s Cathedral on Sunday August 11.
According to reports, Mr Davies Chitagu reportedly returned home around 10pm and the couple had an argument about him not picking her up from church.
He was reportedly sleeping when his wife stormed the room he was in and emptied a bucket of hot water on him. A family member told Chronicle that the lady ignored her husband’s plea while pouring the hot water on him.
“When she feared that he would die on their matrimonial bed, she helped him into their car and went to dump him at a surgery in the city before telling his relatives that he was in hospital,” the family source said.
