A fire caused by a ‘jealous boyfriend’ destroyed Nelly Mbatha’s home this past weekend.

Nelly and  her seven children had a narrow escape when a fire gutted their home last Friday night at about 8pm.

The shack, next to Tayside shop,  is in a close huddle with 10 other families, who also lost everything, near the Buffalo River.

A charge of arson is being investigated.
