Maid Boils Employer’s 3-MONTH OLD BABY To Death Over Late Salary Payment

Emakhandeni residents in Bulawayo were left shocked after a maid allegedly put her employer’s three months old baby in a container and boiled it for a hour. This was in revenge to her employer’s failure to pay her salary on time. The alleged incident occurred on Wednesday last week.

It is understood that the maid, Nokuthula Nyathi, usually gets paid on the first day of every month but at the time of the alleged incident, the woman’s salary was overdue by two days. According to a source, Nyathi and her employer, karen Dube, have a long-standing dispute.

“I do not think that money was the reason for all this. Dube did not trust her because she has caught the maid stealing her belongings on several occasions. The employer tried to fire her but the maid resisted. So I think that might be the major reason behind the cruel deed,” said the source.

It is reported that on the day in question, Nyathi asked Dube to give her her salary. The employer said she did not have the money and promised to get it and the end of the week and left for work thereafter. Nyathi, however, appeared not to have believed her employer’s promise. She is alleged to have taken the three-month old baby and put it in a container and boiled the infant on a stove for close to an hour.

The maid then took her belongings and left. On her return in the evening, Dube found her baby still in the container and purportedly shocked by what was before her, she fell unconscious. The woman was discovered by a neighbour lying on the floor.

An ambulance was called to the scene while the body of the infant was taken to a mortuary. Nyathi ws nabbed a day after the incident and appeared before Western Commonage magistrate, Mr Richard Ramaboea facing murder charges. She was remanded in custody to 23 October.

      You got that right! People should learn to respect their workers!
      The maid was angered because she probably had to leave her own children runing around hungry in the ghetto, whilst she had to go and take care of someone elses child, clean, wash, iron, etc..
      I know the african people.. always trying to cause more suffering on the poor and vulnerable workers.

      She taught them a lesson. People in bulawayo have now have learned to pay their maids on time.

    What boiling an innocent baby over ka 500 minimum wage, God help us

    • Miss Nice   October 16, 2012 at 12:04 pm

      the maids innocent children were propbably starving at home because her employers were too stingy to pay up the “ka 500 minimum wage” God never help anyone.. he doesn’t exist otherwise he would have helped the “innocent baby from boiling since HE soooooo love the little children”

  13. savage   October 16, 2012 at 12:26 pm

    this is the most extreme kind of inhuman..boiling the infant for over 2 hours because of late salary sure. cage that heartless maid forever

  14. T.T   October 16, 2012 at 3:28 pm

    this woman is a devil, she should also be boild to death.

  15. Twiumfwako   October 16, 2012 at 6:28 pm

    Women by nature are heartless when it comes to infants. Others dump their own in pit latrines or smother them. If only we were falling from heaven. No woman, no cry.

  16. kakolwe   October 17, 2012 at 7:30 am

    Which last week when the boiler was remanded on 23rd October. Tumfweko puleeeeeeeeeazzz, stop foreging for news in the Zim archives. There are countless current affairs to work with. Yaaaaaaaaaaa!

    Sh*t, what kind of human would do that

  18. shoes   October 17, 2012 at 10:06 am

    Lets not justify the wrong.Two days from the actual date she gets paid can not make her kill an innocent soul.She is just a devil. She is lucky its not here where we would have applied instant justice.All those supporting such act must be worse than her. Be realistic!

    Somehow, I seem to think most of these stories are just cooked-up.

    anyway if it is true the mother is to blame, why leave the child in the hands of some u are not in good terms with, I think the mother is too ignorant about these maids, if a maid because too big headed, employee another one, if anything i would rather stop buying clothes and take my babe to a day care, Aba ku Zimbabwe balikwata akaso, as a result u lose a hard earned baby, 9 months carrying and and labour atase, u are foolish mothers, mothers got intiative, but iwe, why, and how?? sorry baba erest in love.

    Definately you will see the Lord in glory.

    love u my babe
