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
