A man suffered severe injuries after being burned by a jealous woman.

29-year-old Siyanda Nxumalo of Durban, South Africa, was burned by his friend’s girlfriend after he came to the home in the early hours of Sunday morning.

The woman accused Nxumalo of introducing her boyfriend to other women at a nightclub.

Nxumalo said that he was trying to explain to the woman that he did not force his friend to come with him to the nightclub.

However, the woman would not hear of it. She pulled out a tea pot and poured boiling water on Nxumalo, burning him.

Nxumalo was taken to a hospital for treatment.

The woman said that she was tired of Nxumalo taking her boyfriend to the clubs, while she had to stay home and take care of their two-year-old child.

“When she called her child’s daddy in the middle of the night wondering where he was, he turned off his phone, and that made her very angry,” a friend of the suspect said.

Police Captain Thulani Zwane of the Inanda Police, said that they are investigating the incident and the woman is facing charges of assault.
