A man is fighting for his life at Nyamira County hospital after he was burnt with acid by his wife after domestic squabbles.

The incident happened on Monday in Nyaobe village, Bokeira area in Nyamira County. 

Neighbours said Dorine Osebe picked a quarrel with her husband Justine Amenya when he returned home drunk.

"Amenya was drunk and this angered his wife because their daughter is yet to join secondary school due to lack of uniforms. Dorine asked him to explain where he got money to drink alcohol yet their daughter has not joined school," said Esther Bochaberi.

Ms Bochaberi said after the heated quarrel, Dorine entered the house where she picked a plastic bottle containing acid. 

"Dorine sprinkled her husband with acid from the back and partly on his face and fled from home in fear of attack from members of the public," she noted. 

Area assistant chief Mabeya Mogeni said the victim was rushed to hospital immediately where is recapturing. 

"Men should be responsible to avoid unnecessary attacks from wives. Parents who will fail to take their children to school will be arrested," he said.
