Her vagina had opened up for a girl of her age. As a mother I was traumatised, shocked and sad. I have nobody to help”.
After reporting to her employer, she said, the owner of the eatery dismissed the little girl’s account and wrote it off.
But after several confrontation, the culprit admitted to husband of the eatery owner of committing the heinous crime. The revelation provoked the owner of the chop bar, but her anger was instead directed at the victim and her mother. She sacked them from her place for reporting the incident to the police.
