A Takoradi Circuit Court “A” has sentenced Madam Yaa, the 36-year-old mother, who poured hot water on her son at Funko in the Ahanta West District of the Western Region to six years jail term.

Madam Yaa had the genitals of her 11-year-old son burnt with hot water after accusing him of taking her GH¢1 to buy food.

Peter Lennox Aidoo said the Victim, Emmanuel Affenyi,  a class two pupil of the Funko Catholic Primary on the said day, returned from School very hungry and took the GH1¢ note in his mother’s room to buy food.

When he was questioned by his Mother, she boiled hot water and poured it on his groin leading to severe burn after confessing.

The mother was arrested after a complaint was lodged by one Robert Bonney, a physician assistant at Kwesimintsim hospital after the scarred boy was brought to the facility Sunday for treatment.
