Kisumu Woman sets herself and her two kids on fire after quarrel with husband



A 26-year-old woman, who lives in Kisumu, lit her whole house that costed her life and the lives of her two children.

Rukia Odhiambo allegedly purchased 10 liters of petrol on Monday, December 10th on a nearby filling station. She did this act after finding out that her husband was going to marry a second wife.

She bought the petrol and locked herself in together with her two children. One aged 6 years and the other one was 3 years. She refused the children to leave the house as she was setting the house on fire.

She was doing this in order to protest the husband bringing in a second wife. The woman’s husband was at the time working in Eldoret, Uasin Gishu county when the woman decided to take her life and her children’s life too.

Central Kisumu location Chief Simon Osege Orwa said that the couple often had arguments.
