AN unidentified Harare woman set her husband ablaze before committing suicide following a suspected domestic dispute Wednesday morning.
It is believed the incident happened outside the couple’s house in Mabelreign around 2am.
Neighbours said they suspected that the woman could have doused her husband with petrol and set him ablaze before drinking poison which later killed her.
Details of the tragedy remained sketchy at the time of going to print last night as police were unreachable for comment, with neighbours saying they were unsure what led to the tragedy.
“I heard a male voice shouting for help while I was in bed and went outside where we discovered the pair lying outside the house holding each other with the husband crying for help,” a female neighbour, who declined to be named, said.
The man, who was only identified as Machimbirike, is reportedly battling for life at Parirenyatwa Hospital.
