Nairobi City woman in court for burning neighbour’s breasts
A 52-year-old woman in Nairobi has been arrested and charged in court for burning her neihgbour’s breast. The suspect identified as Betty Nabwire Nakhulo is alleged to have scalded Sarah Atieno on the chest on August 18, thereby injuring her.
According to police, Nabwire stormed her neighbour’s house to find out why her child often referred to her as mapengo (toothless woman).
The court heard that Nabwire demanded to know why Atieno and her husband had not taken time to punish their child or take any other appropriate action.
It also heard that Atieno accused Nabwire of being a husband snatcher, and thus had no moral authority to lecture them on proper parenting, accusations the accused did not take kindly prompting the two to exchange words before Nabwire allegedly lost her cool, stormed the cooking area and reached for a saucepan which had boiling water, splashing it on Atieno, injuring her left breast before taking off.
Nabwire however denied the charges and was released on Sh100,000 cash bail pending hearing on November 28.
