    Mberengwa woman faces jail for pouring hot cooking oil on hubby


    MBERENGWA – An allegedly promiscuous 26 year old man from Mberengwa is battling for his life at the local district hospital after his wife poured hot cooking oil on him while he slept.
    Emerson Musaripi of Matibini Village under Chief Mapiravana ignored warnings from his 21-year-old wife Sophia Dube that one day she was going to find a way to punish him for his alleged promiscuous behaviour.
    On 22 September Musaripi woke up with a shrill after Dube allegedly poured hot cooking oil on him.
    It is alleged that Musaripi returned home around midnight and Dube asked him why he always returned home late and further accused him of dating married women from the village.
     Musaripi who was drunk professed ignorance over the matter and proceeded to bed. Dube then allegedly boiled 2 litres of cooking oil and poured it all over Musaripi's body while he slept.
    Musaripi sustained serious injuries to his face, chest and right arm. Neighbours who heard him scream rushed him to hospital but Dube had fled the scene thinking she had killed the complainant.
    Dube was arrested the following day and appeared before Mberengwa Magistrate Evia Matura charged with Domestic Violence Physical Abuse as Defined in Section 80 (a) of the Domestic Violence Act.
    She was remanded in custody for sentence on September 29. Wadzanayi Shayanewako prosecuted.
