A 31-year-old house help was arrested this week after she was captured on camera beating up her employer's three-month-old daughter.
The girl's mother was shocked after watching the maid identified as Irene Nzisa punish the infant.
The mother had left the house to take her ailing first-born daughter, 3, to the hospital. On their way, she decided to check the live feed from a nanny camera installed in their living room.
She was shocked to watch the caregiver mercilessly beat up her daughter on her hands and thighs.
“I was in shock, we could not proceed to the hospital after I saw that video. I just went straight home and on my way, I contacted my husband who came with the police,” the mother of two from Mlolongo told Nairobi News.
Nzisa had been employed to look after the two girls six weeks ago.
She was arrested and locked up at Mlolongo police station for a night before she was released the following day after her brother pleaded with her employer not to press charges against her.
“Her brother talked me out of pressing charges against his sister so I just withdrew the charges and she was released the following day."
“I am however scared she may end up in someone’s house and hurt other children that is why I’m spreading the information,” the mother of two added.
