South Africa – A Mwenezi family was left counting losses after an enraged South Africa-based man reportedly burned down their houses recently.

Nine Homeless As Enraged Man Torches In-Laws' House

It is alleged that failure to reconcile with his former wife who is a relative to that family caused the man to turn his anger on the latter.

The suspect’s wife reportedly ran away from South Africa to seek refuge at her Uncle Katini Dhaimani’s place in Mwenezi on August 2, 2021.

The ex-couple had been together for eight years.

Mukweva village head Elton Chauke confirmed the development saying the incident has left nine family members homeless.

The family lost several valuables. Katini Dhaimani’s main house, kitchen and cattle pen were set on fire by an unknown assailant but on that same day there was a misunderstanding between Dhaimani and his niece’s husband who had come to reconcile with his wife,” said Chauke.

TellZim reports that a source close to the matter alleges that Chidhava went to Dhaimani’s house to reconcile with his wife Enia Dhaimani.

But, the uncle could not bow down to Chidhava’s demands for reconciliation as he advised him to go and come back with his family members.

“He went away but is suspected to have come back later at night with about four litres of petrol which he used to raze down the houses and the cattle pen,” said the source.

Dhaimani said Chidhava visited him on a Saturday and left the following Monday morning after threatening him with an unspecified action.

That night, the family woke up to a fire gutting down their houses.

The matter was reported to Neshuro Sub Office police station who attended the scene a day later.

Further allegations are that the former couple had been facing marital problems for quite some time.
