2012-10-10 15:06

Durban - A woman was arrested for allegedly attempting to kill her husband with acid in KwaMashu, north of Durban, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Wednesday.

Captain Thulani Zwane said the 47-year-old woman was arrested on Tuesday.

"The suspect had a fight with her husband on Friday because she suspected he was cheating on her."

The woman poured acid on her 42-year-old husband while he was sleeping on the couch. The man was found in the road by his 14-year-old son after he had tried to run away from his wife.

The son called an ambulance and the man was taken to hospital, where he was in a critical condition, Zwane said.

    Kwamashu is scary I tell you, the stuff that these women discuss at their so called stokvel is scary. if you suspect someone is cheating, do you investigations and CONFIRM, we all have suspected our partners of cheating at some point. the world would be short of acid if we were as uncivilsed as this dumb lady. pour acid INSIDE her private parts and see how she likes it

    This seems to be a new trend that is catching on in the 'veldt'. Last week a a guy did his wife in the same way? huh?

    Hell have no fury like a woman scorned.

    Acid attacks are becoming strangely common.

      @David. I gave you a thumbs up because i agree with you but i also wanted to give you a thumbs down because i agree with you - this is such a sick thing to do. are we becoming a society of phycos?

    I sure hope women like this put out more. If I literally had to slit my wrists to get some from a wife and she still burned me with acid for trying to fill the quota elsewhere, that'd be f_cked up. Just leave, Mrs-NotTonight-I'mTired!

    Prof Mokgokong once asked: Why acid?

  • lielie.smit - 2012-10-11 16:10

    ai jai jai, there must be a more fun way to make the bastard suffer, not acid, seriously. or for that matter the Bobbit way with a knife, no man, damn, there is seriously a better way.

    There is three sides to a story but hurting someone does not make it right..

    There's many other ways to get revenge, this is harsh!
