In Homa-Bay town's Shauri-Yako estate, a 23-year-old mother is being detained at the police station after reportedly setting her son's hands on fire for stealing cooked food from the neighbor's home.

When she learned that her son had reportedly broken into the neighbor's home and eaten fried liver, the mother is believed to have bound his hands with nylon bag before setting it flame on his hands.

According to reports, the youngster who was playing with his three siblings went into the neighbor's home and took the food before the neighbor's youngster noticed him and reported him.

Salim Nyauke, the assistant township head for Homa-Bay, claims that neighbors who heard the youngster screaming while his hands were on fire intervened to save the child from her mother's grasp.

The youngster was rescued, according to Mr. Nyauke, and taken urgently to Homa-Bay County Referral Hospital where he is being treated for severe burns to his fingers.

The lady will be charged with assault after the inquiry is over, according to the assistant chief.
