“Househelp from hell:
Her name is Joyce namuma magoha, from bungoma. She’s been working for a friend of mine in thika for two months. She hit the baby on the head using a plate made of glass then sprinkled salt on the wound then left the baby there lying down with no one to take care of him. It’s the mum who came back from work and found the baby bleeding on the floor. They tracked this Satan’s agent and she was found hiding in banana past Ruaka. She’s currently in police custody. If you ever bump into her kindly don’t employ her.
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.
