-The lady wanted to stop her husband from flirting with light-skinned women

– Her husband, on discovering what she was doing, issued stern warning
A Mbankolo woman has become the talk of her village after she started bleaching her skin to please her husband, only for him to threaten her with divorce.
The lady, only identified as, Aminata, decided to bleach her black skin because she had more than once spotted her husband flirting openly with light-skinned women.
“I believed bleaching my skin would make me more attractive to my husband and thus prevent him from having extra-marital affairs,” she confessed.
