A 23 years old woman is being held at Homa Bay police station after burning her son's hands for allegedly stealing cooked food from a neighbour's house at Shauri Yako estate within Homa Bay town.
The woman is said to have tied her son's hands using a nylon sack's string (manila) before setting it ablaze on his hands after getting information from the other children about what his son had done.
According to Homa Bay township assistant chief Salim Nyauke, the child was later rescued from her mother's hands by neighbors who responded to the screams from the boy as his hands were set on fire.
Mr. Nyauke says that the boy was rescued and rushed to Homa Bay county Referral hospital where he is nursing serious burns on his fingers. The assistant chief said that the woman would have looked for a softer punishment and will be now arraigned for assault upon conclusion of investigation.
