Woman set husband ablaze


Sindiso Ndlovu, a 42-year-old woman from Maphisa in Kezi, Matobo district, was sentenced to 10 years in jail by the High Court in Bulawayo for the murder of her husband, Busani Ncube. The court found Ndlovu guilty under section 47 of the Criminal Law (Codification and Reform) Act [Chapter 9:23].

According to the court proceedings, on October 19, 2019, in Maphisa, Ndlovu intentionally set her husband on fire in their bedroom, to kill him. This act followed a dispute between the couple regarding Ncube’s infidelity.

Ndlovu reportedly locked the bedroom door while they were both inside, poured petrol on Ncube, and then ignited the fire. After the incident, Ndlovu was arrested when the matter was reported to the police.

Ncube was initially treated at Maphisa District Hospital but was later transferred to United Bulawayo Hospitals due to the severity of his injuries. Tragically, he passed away on January 8, 2020, as a result of the injuries sustained in the fire.

The sentencing underscores the serious consequences of the crime committed by Ndlovu, highlighting the tragic outcome of a domestic dispute that turned deadly.
