Kisii - A Kenyan man has set his wife and child on fire after his in-laws cancelled their marriage on the pretext that they were related.
The two, who had been staying together for a year, had gone to seek blessings from the wife’s mother when the incident occurred.
The mother-in-law allegedly told Abraham Moseti that he could not marry Alice Okemwa because they were related.
According to an NTV video, the man used petrol to light the house where his wife and son slept, leading to their death.
The man also caught fire and died on his way to hospital, while three other people were left nursing injuries.
