Kenyan woman has been thrown into prison for allegedly using a razor blade to cut her nine-year-old niece’s private part for urinating in bed.
In recent times, a lot of children go through a lot of pain in the hands of their parents or caretakers. It is either these children are defiled, sexually assaulted, or burnt with hot water.
This time a Kenyan woman has been thrown into prison for allegedly using a razor blade to cut her nine-year-old niece’s private part for urinating in bed. A 38-year-old teacher, Consolata Shenda, has been remanded in prison custody for using a razor blade to cut her nine-year-old niece’s private parts because she urinated on the bed while sleeping.
The Star reports that Shenda who was arraigned at a Kibera Court charged with assault and cruelty by the police committed the act sometime in November 2016 after the girl who lives with her, wet herself while sleeping.
The court heard how Shenda who is the guardian of the girl said to be her sister’s child, got angry when the girl woke up the next morning, and used a blade to slice her vagina as a punishment for urinating.
In addition, it was also reported that an Anambra couple has been called out for maltreating their 8-year-old house help. The couple identified as Mrs. Ogochukwu Anichukwu and Mr. Emmanuel Anichukwu were accused of flogging the little girl mercilessly and starving her repeatedly. It was further gathered that the girl has been seen several times eating sand because of starvation.
The couple was recently dragged to the human right legal initiative in Ekwulobia, Anambra State following the injury the 8-year-old house help sustained after allegedly being poured hot water by Ogochukwu. The lady reportedly poured hot water on her house help because she caught her licking milk meant for her baby.
