Step-mother from hell

Woman arrested after stabbing her step daughter in her private parts with a hot knife

A 24-year-old woman was arrested by police in Kisii after stabbing her step daughter with a hot knife.

The girl who is only 8 years old is nursing deep injuries at the Kisii Teaching and Referral Hospital for allegedly stealing Ksh50 from her step-mother.

According to reports, the step-mother tied the minor on a bed before she started torturing her.

Local Chief Wilder Nyaboke said the girl had spent the two days with the wounds as her step-mother had locked her up in a room.

Injuries

Doctors stated that the girl will have to undergo surgery as she had sustained serious wounds and burns from the ordeal.

The medics noted that the girl had been stabbed severally using a hot knife but two wounds on the upper side of the thighs were more serious and required immediate attention.

Reports indicated that the suspect kept the girl hidden from her father who later realized what had happened and rushed her to hospital.

Police are holding the suspect at Kisii central police before she is arraigned in court.

Child abuse

Child battering is illegal in Kenya and authorities have on several occasions warned parents and guardians against the psychological effects of child abuse.

A report on child abuse indicated that Kenyan children face various forms of abuse such as inflicting of pain involving the child's sexual organ which about 35% of children have faced at some point in their life.

Such abuses have resulted in regular nightmares, withdrawal, disturbed sleep, burns, multiple bruises and marks, fractures and bald spots on the abused children

Mothers (and/or female guardians) were the worst perpetrators of child abuse followed by fathers (and/or male guardians) and close family relatives and friends.
