Ndaona: Arrested for scalding her son

Police publicist Inspector Joseph Sauka says the suspect Ndaona Samson was scalded the child as a punishment for stealing beans.

“The suspect left the victim home for the market, and when she came back, she found that the victim had eaten some beans which she was cooking. This did not please the suspect who took hold of the child and dipped both his hands into burning charcoal,” said Sauka.

Worse still Sauka says “the suspect did not take the child to the hospital for treatment” despite the victim having scalds over his palms “but the issue was reported to police by concerned villagers after a week.”

Meanwhile, the suspect is still in police custody and is expected to appear before court soon where he will answer a case of unlawful wounding which is contrary to section 241 of the Penal code.

Ndaona Samson comes from Joshua village, Senior Chief Msamala in the same district of Balaka.

    I CONCUR TO SOME OF THE COMMENTATORS BEFORE THAT THIS LADY SHOULD NOT BE INCARCERATED IN JAIL BUT BE GIVEN A COMMUNITY WORK OR SUSPENDED SENTENCE AS THIS IS NOT A GRAVE FELONY PEOPLE HAVE COMMITTED IN MALAWI.LIKE STEALING 4 BILLION KWACHA BY ONE LUTEPO.

    ANYONE WHO CAN DENY NOT BEING WHIPPED UP BY THEIR MUM? NORMALLY MUMS ARE RENOWN IN INSTILLING MILITARY PUNISHMENTS TO THEIR CHILDREN AS COMPARED TO FATHERS!

    LET HER GO HOME TO CONTINUE LOOKING AFTER HER SON. GOD SHOULD FORGIVE HER ACT AND SHE LEARN FROM THIS

  16. Decent Citizen says:

    She was discouraging her son to be future Lutepos,Caroline savala and other future phwiyos.If Malawi had 30 mothers like this,they would be no theft of public funds.Zilonda zipola ndipo sazabanso moyo mwake.

  17. R.K.Kalira. says:

    Here the mother seems to be living lonely becoz in the statement it says one of the nearby reported the matter to police station.Somehow am sensing some abnormalities which surely Police requires to investigate.How could this lady be living lonely?Where is the father of this son?Then what about the relatives on both sides the father as well as this lady?We must also learn from such events mostly men who are fond of impregnating and dumping ladies look the child is in prison/suffering.The todays Malawi to live its no joke there4 its unfair to leave the lady taking care of.This lady is suffering to take care of the child and putting her in prison its no solution.We need to teach the lady by supporting her to start something to earn a living whereby it will surely calm her spirit from being violent.Mavuto ndithu tisachuluke nzeru zomangonyoza and sometimes mutu wakeso suli bwino.A police chonde study her and thoroughly investigate the true answer will be discovered.Ndende its not solution.

  18. Bojomujo says:

    Malawi should strive to get all girls to school. My point is, this young mother looks like someone who has never been to school. Look at her again!. And, no woman who knows aeiou can never do such a thing.

    The poverty is evil. if mother had enough she could give her child enough to eat and the child could not take anything without the mother knowing.

    people with enough food force their children to eat any thing but the children they don’t eat!

    my humble request to world please let share with others!

  36. Bratusha says:

    You get scalded when the source of heat is liquid eg hot water, thobwa. But if the child hands were put on burning charcoal as reported here then that is burns. Anyway, that a side this is not the better way of disciplining children
