Mmopane man is battling for his life after his jealous wife poured a pot of boiling oil on him.

A 30-year-old man, Simon Kereng, is currently battling for his life after his jealous wife, Rifilwe Kereng, poured hot cooking oil on him because she thought he was still seeing his ex-wife.

According to the report, Simon who is also a cancer patient, suffered severe facial burns and has been in hospital since the incident.

The attack reportedly occurred after a serious altercation at the couple’s home in Kanye, as the wife suspected that the man was still seeing his former wife behind her back.

Simon narrated that though they do not have any child together, his wife always suspected that he was still seeing and taking care of his former wife with whom he has two children.

The victim said:

“She has always been troubling me about my former wife. The thing is that I separated with my former wife and we had two children. There was really nothing going on between me and my former wife but somehow, my current wife suspected that I was cheating on her.

Each time she saw my former wife in the environs of our suburb, she would go mad and shout at me, accusing me of cheating on her with my former wife.
