A house help in Thika was this week arrested after she hit a baby with a glass plate and later sprinkled salt on the open wound.

The lady, identified as Joyce Namuma Magoha, is said to have panicked after hitting the baby she was looking after and used salt in an attempt to stop the bleeding.

She then left the baby unattended and fled to Banana in Kiambu County but was tracked through an agent and was arrested.

The mother came back home and found her baby on the floor crying with a deep cut on the forehead and she immediately sought medical assistance.

The story was also shared on social media by one Sue Williams who urged Kenyans not to employ the heartless house help.

“Spread this everywhere so that no mum can risk entrusting her with their child/ children. I'm so angry!!! I cannot even begin to imagine the pain this boy went through.

“When asked why she did that she said (ati) personal stress!!!” she wrote.
