A 34 -year old woman Maame Serwaa at Bompeso in the Western region is in the grips of the law for allegedly burning the private part of her 18- year old daughter for stealing her Gh¢1, 800 which she gave to her boyfriend.
The enraged mother after noticing money kept in her safe had been stolen forcibly opened the legs of her daughter and stuffed the burning fire into it.
She justified her action claiming that it will serve as a deterrent to the victim as she is believed to have cultivated the habit of pilfering with her cash in recent times.
According to eyewitnesses, she prevented neighbours who tried to rescue the poor girl from the inhumane treatment as she screamed for help.
Maame Serwaa said she had saved that money to pay one of her children’s school fees only for her daughter to steal it and give to her boyfriend.
