Lugari: Grief as Woman Sets Self and Her Two Children Ablaze

Residents of Lugari station B Village in Lugari Sub-County are still astonished with a bizarre incident after a 35 year old woman burnt herself and two children to death Saturday night.

Helen Vuyanzi is alleged to have drenched parts of the house with petrol, locked herself and three sons inside before lighting it up.

According to Mr. Stephen Okila a family member, he was called by his cousin Thomas Amito who is the husband to the deceased informing him that his house was on fire. Okila said he was not aware of any conflict between his cousin, Amito, and his wife.

However, speaking on condition of anonymity a close neighbor to the family said that the deceased and her partner had been having recurrent domestic wrangles.

Confirming the incident, Lugari Sub-County Police Commander, Bernard Ngungu said Vuyanzi had accused her husband of infidelity. Police say the mother-of-three might have bought petrol from a local filling station, and used it to set her matrimonial home a blaze.

Bodies of Vuyanzi and her two sons were taken to Webuye County Hospital morgue.
