Girl scalds father with porridge


by Linekela Halwoodi


A distressed father from Okuryangava reappeared in court with his two daughters whom he had called the cops on last year after they poured hot porridge on him for questioning their ill behaviour in May last year.
The man had not seen it coming when his hot dinner ended up on his face and lap.
On 19 May Shindamba Moyo confronted his stepdaughter, Dorothea Malambo, 21, and his 17 year old daughter about not sleeping at home and an argument ensued.
Before he knew it, the 17 year old who was in Grade 9 snatched the pot off the stove and poured all the porridge on her father before they sat down for dinner.
Moyo immediately called NamPol on his daughters after the assault and they were taken into police custody for assault with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.
The 17 year old will be trailed alongside her step-sister as her juvenile screening indicated that she is fit to stand for normal trial.
Although they are now out of police custody they will still be going back to court on 9 March this year for their docket to be brought to court.
