A house help who was captured on camera assaulting and feeding vomit to her employer’s 15-month-old baby, has been charged to court.
Cecile Ngumbo, 35, was accused of subjecting a child to cruel punishment at Ngara estate in Nairobi.
The court heard that Ngumbo’s employer had installed CCTV cameras to monitor her house and she was shocked when she saw Ngumbo mistreating the baby.
Police records indicate that Ngumbo was seen feeding the baby with vomit and at the same time kicking and pinching her.
She confronted Ngumbo who denied the accusations and later reported the matter to cops, who arrested her.
Ngumbo denied the charges. She pleaded that she was the sole bread winner for her three children and asked the court for mercy.
The matter will be mentioned on April 4.
