Two Women Arrested For Abusing A 12-Year-Old By Inserting A Boiling Egg In Her Mouth:

Cases of women exercising brutal punishments on minors are increasing by the day. There has been another report on a 40-year-old Chivi woman and her neighbour who shoved a hot boiled egg into the mouth of her 12-year-old niece as a means of punishment for eating lunch without her consent.

According to iHarare, the ruthless woman whose name was withheld for the protection of the child is reported to have inserted an egg into the minors child with the help of her 30-year-old neighbour who held the girl.

The court heard that sometime in October last year, the aunt left the minor alone at their homestead in Silver City, Chivi.

However, as the day progressed, the minor got hungry and decided to help herself to a plate of sadza which was in the family’s kitchen.

When her aunt came back from her visit in the company of her co-accused neighbour, she discovered the food she had reserved for herself was missing and inquired about it. The innocent girl politely informed her aunt that she had eaten it as she was hungry.

This did not go well with the aunt who then boiled an egg and called her friend to hold the minor tight while she inserted the hot egg into the minor’s mouth.

The minor sustained severe bruises on her tongue due to the assault. It is this assault that led to the arrest of the two women.

The aunt appeared before Chivi magistrate Rutendo Jakati facing assault charges.

She is jointly charged with her 30-year-old female neighbour (also name withheld) who held the minor as the aunt inserted the hot egg.

The two were remanded in custody on 7 April for a continuation of trial.
