- A mother has poured boiling water on her son for taking a cedi
- The 11-year old boy had used the money to buy some snacks

A mother at Kwesimintsim in the Western Region has inflicted unbearable wounds on her son after he stole a cedi from her.
The woman, known as Sister Yaa, threw boiling hot water on her son leaving behind a large part of his body peeled of exposing red raw flesh.
Joy FM has reported that the son, a Class Two pupil, had returned from school very hungry hence decided to use the cedi to buy himself a snack
The angry mother, noticing the money was gone, did the said harm to her son despite him crying and begging for pardon. It was the intervention of some next door neighbours who sent the 'skinned' boy to the Kwesimintsim hospital for immediate treatment.
Baffled at the mother's inhumanity, health officials alerted the police who picked up Sister Yaa. So far, the police are expected to press charges but Sister Yaa has already been arrested.
