FELICIA regrets what she did to herself.

“No man is worth it,” Felicia Mokeka (35) from Vanderbijlpark in the Vaal told Daily Sun.

In June, Felicia poured methylated spirits over herself and set herself alight. “I only survived because God wanted me to teach others through my mistakes,” she said.

“It doesn’t help to try and keep your marriage alive if it is dead. You only harm yourself.”

Felicia said she came home early one day and decided to surprise her partner by hiding behind the couch – but she was the one who got the surprise!

Her partner arrived home, speaking to his nyatsi on speaker- phone, so Felicia could hear both sides of the conversation.

The mother of two said when the nyatsi asked the partner where Felicia was, he said: “Oh, that one. I don’t know where she is and I don’t care.”

She said the things he said about her were very bad.

When he had finished talking, she got up. “He was shocked to see me there,” she said. “We had a good life before. We were a great couple. Everyone wanted to be like us.”

As she was packing her things, she saw a bottle of spirits and that is when she set herself on fire.

She said her partner put out the fire. She sustained first-degree burn wounds. She woke up in hospital two months later.

She said even the doctors were amazed that she survived.

“I am able to do everything for myself and I am grateful for that,” she said.-Daily Sun

  10. Not okay to harm oneself on account of someone. Do not over-invest in another person, husband or not.
    You were born alone. Always keep 20% to yourself for a possibility of things like this in any relationship.
    Love, in that sense, is nothing but a fleeting state of mind.

  22. Am I seeing a suspended or ressurrected ghost?This is foolishness at the highest level and infact the next time your husband cheats on you,pour petrol on those remaining parts so that you don’t go to hell coz you would have gone through hell already.

  24. Back to Bob Marley, now that this dr of your beauty seemes shut. Behold, invite God to your new life now! For he shall show you many other doors he already opened for you. Behold, he shall not forsake you.
