An expectant mother in Nakuru set herself ablaze after a domestic row

Cythia Njoki sustained injuries in her hands, abdomen,
thighs and face after attempting to commits suicide in her
house at Langalanga estate using Kerosene after her
husband failed to explain where he spent the Saturday
night, August 14.
Ms Njoki said her husband, a mechanic, failed to return
home that night and when he came on Sunday evening, he
kept on calling a woman she suspected was having an affair
with him. In anger, she went into their bedroom, poured
kerosene on her body and set herself alight.
“I had an issue with my husband after he failed to report
home and on coming, he continued to call a woman he was
having a relationship with. I was angry and burnt myself,”
said Njoki who was in deep pain at Rift Valley Provincial
Hospital.
Nursing officer in charge of the ward, Jenipher Mathenge
said the patient was received on Sunday night at around
8pm in a critical condition.
“The patient was received in a very critical condition, with
her hands, face, abdomen and thighs burnt. Her fingers are
also totally burnt,” Mathenge said.
She said the Ms Njoki, who is six months pregnant also has
breathing problems after she inhaled hot air. They are
investigating the status of the unborn baby after they
noticed the foetus had irregular heart beat.
“The patient is pregnant and we are conducting further
investigations to know the status of the unborn child,” she
said.
The patient’s mother Mary Wangui said she rushed to the
hospital immediately after she was informed about the
incident but could not communicate with Njoki because she
had breathing difficulties.
Ms Wangui said prior to the incident, Njoki had shared with
her the problems she was going through due to the alleged
promiscuity. She asked the husband what happened but he
did not give a clear explanation, claiming to have received
a phone call from a woman whom Njoki suspected was his
lover.
