A WOMAN reportedly poured a pot of boiling spinach on her husband on Sunday afternoon – because he didn’t bring home money from work!
The 40-year-old wife was furious when her 36-year-old husband returned home from a piece job without a cent after drinking.
Shocked neighbours rushed to the couple’s home in Tambo Square kasi, Mangaung, after hearing the husband’s screams.
A neighbour told Daily Sun the wife was cooking spinach while she waited for her husband to come home.
“When he arrived and told her he didn’t get any money from his piece job, she lost it.
“She started accusing him of working long hours for free and said she was going to phone the man he had been working for,” said the neighbour.
“After the husband told her he wouldn’t let her make the phone call she threw the boiling spinach on his back and shoulders.”
Another neighbour (33) said the woman was bossy towards her husband, who was a quiet man.
Police spokeswoman Sergeant Ikobeng Hlubi confirmed the incident and said the woman was arrested on the same day and will face an assault charge when she appears in court soon.
