Multitala who is 30 years of age said he got married to his wife in July 2022 and since then she has made life unbearable for him by constantly throwing curses at him.

He said, “I just thought of ending it. That Friday, I went into a filing station, bought fuel and went to a forest behind Baptist High School, Iree, and set myself ablaze.

“I thought of what I was passing through and it made me to decide to end my life. Poverty and repeated curses of my wife made me lose hope. I married the woman just in July this year.

“Some people heard me when the fire was burning my body and rushed to the scene. They rescued me and brought me to hospital.”
