Police in Kamkunji are investigating an incident where a man tricked his wife into reaching out to the boyfriend, pretending she was sick before he burnt him with hot water.

In a report seen by Nairobi News, Mr Eric Mombo, had seen love text messages between the wife and the man identified as Mr Bonface Musyoka.

Then, he asked the wife, identified as Ms Monica Mumbi, to make the call and pretend that she was alone in the house and very sick.

He also told her that she should tell him that he was away in Mombasa so that he could rush to the house.

“Moments later, Mr Musyoka was at her house knocking the door. Immediately, the house was opened, Mr Mombo poured hot water on his chest,” the report read in part.

Police say the suspect raised the alarm, saying a thief had attacked him inside his house.

He was rescued by police officers who were on patrol and rushed him to Mama Lucy Kibaki Hospital, where he was admitted.
