(Scroll down for video) A man was severely burned with hot oil by his angry wife.

The woman of Zimbabwe, burned her husband with hot cooking oil after a dispute over a phone call from his mistress, according to Masvingo police.

The couple has been married for 10 years. Masvingo police spokesperson Charity Mazula, said that the incident occurred on Saturday night.

“The woman, Chipo Shiriyedende, has been arrested and is cooperating with police. She will soon appear in court and will be facing attempted murder charges,” Mazula said.

According to neighbors, Tarupiwa Chibundu, 34, came home about 8:00 p.m., after drinking beer. He found his wife preparing for bed.

The couple got into a heated argument after Shiriyedende accused her husband of being promiscuous and cheating on her.

During the argument, Chibundu’s girlfriend called a number of times and sent several WhatsApp messages, which the husband ignored.

The husband eventually answered the phone, which angered his wife further. The couple then went to sleep.

However, during the early hours of the morning, all hell broke loose. Shiriyedende awoke angry and after realizing that her husband was fast asleep she went to the kitchen.

She cooked oil, and when it was very hot she spilled it on her husband’s face and body, leaving him severely burned. He suffered serious injuries to his face, chest and right elbow.

Chibundu was in excruciating pain and began screaming. The noise alarmed their neighbor, Rogers Gava, who rushed to the house to see what was going on. Gava took Chibundu to the General Hospital in Masvingo.

A report was made at the police station, leading to the arrest of Shiriyedende. Chibundu is in critical condition at the hospital.
