Maid Abuses Child
Maid Abuses Child

Chris-Vincent’s Comments on the issue

There is a video going around of a housemaid grossly abusing a child—in fact that is atrocious (if you have not seen it yet, check it below).

I am not in anyway in support of the treatment the housemaid gave to the child but two things come to mind after watching the video!

In Africa, we treat housemaids with similar or the same gross contempt and do really we expect them to take genuine and proper care of our children?

Some treat their housemaids less as they will treat their own children. So what do such people expect when they leave these same abused maids alone with their precious children?

Also, have you considered why the housemaid was eating the child’s food? It wouldn’t be far-fetched to assume that she does not have any food of her own—else she would have gone and taken her own portion.

Most of these housemaids are given no or little food or even if given, what they eat is what the dogs are worth.

CCTVs are not the answer to the conundrum; the answer lies in Confucius’ golden rule “Do unto others as you would want them do unto you”, found in the Analects (500 BCE). Of course, well plagiarised and stolen by religion (specifically Jesus Christ and the Bible- Matthew 7:12, the Hindu sacred literature- Mahabharata, bk. 5, ch. 49, v. 57, and the Buddhist sacred literature- Udanavargu, 5:18).

If we begin to treat our housemaids with love; they will treat our children with equal love…

This shocking video is enough to leave any person livid with rage at how anyone can be so heartless, particularly towards a child.

The woman in the video is the nanny who takes care of the kids of a Ugandan couple. The footage was taking with a secret cam in the living room, which the parents activated after finding bruises on their kids which the nanny could not satisfactorily explain.

The nanny was reported to the Police and is currently in custody. The girl is still alive despite several stories floating on social media that she had died.

A really sad situation and justice must be meted out to this heartless lady.

Watch the video below (Viewers Discretion)…

    1. How can u even write this crap? Do u have a child of your own? An innocent little kid is being killed and u talk about house maids being multreated? If you are being multreated you leave the damn house, you do not try to kill an innocent little child. So you are saying house maids being multreated is a justification to what she did? I am very very disappointed in you. I have been visiting your site for a very long time but i think i am done, you are a complete douchebag.

    2. Chris I think you are very confused. How much of the baby’s food did the maid eat? Wasn’t it abt 2 or 3 spoons? Is tht your definition of how a hungry person will eat? Of course not. The maid was just being evil from her soul. She was dressed decently and even carried some weight on. She did not appear starving by any means, otherwise she would have eaten ALL the child’s food or even left the child alone to go and eat since it was evident no one was home.

      Some helps are treated fairly but still abuse the kids they are supposed to take care off. They steal from the family, they still collaborate with armed robbers to attack those homes, they even sexually molest the children just to satisfy their own desires. Is tht also caused by bad treatment of the family?

      Until it happens to you, you will think it’s ok to make such abysmal excuses in your article.

      This is a clear case of a mean spirited person with a wicked heart towards a child tht can’t even speak a word.

      1. Maybe you have failed to look at the wider problem—and just looking at in the case of this child. Many more children are being killed and abused in this world by maids and instead of only punishing the criminals as we do and you are doing, you work to eliminate those conditions which somewhat give rise to some of the crimes—as Confucius said.

        Naturally, there are evil people in this world and for those, we can do little about. But there are others we create them, turn them into monsters by the way we treat or deal with them.

        I have seen how Africans treat their maids (many who are not even paid) many times and mostly I ask myself; where is the conscience of these people? What do they expect these people to do to their kids?

        It is wicked, but to the hurt soul —there is no child. It is like telling a Palestinian whose brothers and sisters have been killed by Israeli missiles that an Israeli child is innocent. Of course the child is innocent but do you think the person will regard it so?

        We have to look deeper into our social settings or else, the whole world condemning one person alone is not the answer to the deeper problem.

        And you are free to think just in one case; I refuse to do that. I want to look at finding a solution on the bigger scale. We ought to change our attitudes towards people—especially our maids at homes.

        You said the maid has a place to go and could leave. Despite the fact that we are all making assumings in this discusion, how do you know she has any place to go? For some maids, they have no where to go—and there is no real option for them to leave.

        It is like saying to a sex-worker under a pimp that, she has an option to leave and should have left or telling an abused woman in a relationship that, she has option to leave so she should have left. At times, to the person in the situation, there is no real option.

        The child is innocent we all accept that and the act is atrocious, I even stated that already. But like I said, CCTVs is not the answer—because not everyone can even afford that. The real anwer lies in our behaviour—so we dont create monsters. For those who are inherently evil, we can’t do much than hope they are caught.

        1. Chris you are missing my point – a lot of helps nowadays will STILL be mean & evil behind you and your children’s back no matter how well you treat them. At the end of the day, they just want their salary so they pretend to care in your presence.

          I know some families can also be cruel to helps but to beat a child like this is cowardly and senseless as revenge.

          1. When we talk about maids, majority of African maids are not paid so let’s look at the majority. They are mostly people from less background living with those with a little cash to help with their household upkeep.

            I have lived with family members myself (not as a maid)—and take note of the FAMILY MEMBERS. My mother lived and worked in Sierra Leone for a period as a Missionary and during those times, I stayed with several family members. And they never treated me the same way they treated their own children or would treat their children who were my age.

            I am not a brutish person so I wouldnt ofcourse go about beating their children. But as a human, I wouldnt care as much as I should about their children if they left them with me—because they didn’t care about me either. Every human with a blood will do what I am saying at one point if in such a situation.

            The rule; treat others as you would want them treat you, your children and those you love is not just a golden rule—it also says a lot about human beings.

            Like Thomas Hobbs said; naturally, human beings are brutish—and a lot (such as Social Contract) and love keep us in check, ensuring that we do not return to our brutish state.

            For Christ sake, why do we ignore the conditions that create the crimes and expect that locking the few crimianls we catch will end it all for us?

          2. I do understand, that some people treat their maids very harshly, but that doesnt give you the maid the right to abuse your madam’s kids. Its not right and its not acceptable becos this poor child is innocent and cannot be paying for her mother’s behavior towards the maid.
            Honestly if it was me, i will beat the hell out of this maid before i sent her packing. If you hate the way i treat you, leave, but dont take it out on my child and eat her food, thats aint right, its inexcusable.No matter how you are being treated it does not give you the justification to be cruel to the person kids.

    3. Cole, and Claute you two must be confused people, how do you understand what Chris said???. You people should travel to the developed world to be enlightened; There are no maids, you can’t hire anyone as your maid and maltreatment them. Travel and see, this maid and slave stuff don’t happen here in America or Europe. This lady would have had her job and a family of her own should she be in developed country.

      1. This is absolut nonsense i don’t know where you have been in Europe or USA but in western countries you still have maids,nannies don’t blame Africa on fake basis ok? in western countries where any form of abuse is forbidden,you have nannies just like this one who are very mean to the children they are taking care of where do you think this idea of filming the maids came from?? from western countries of course,parents wanted to know if the maid they had was really taking good care of their kids and sometimes the result is horrific. Some time back a maid killed a child in France,so you see Africa is not an exception.

        1. If you lived in America, could you have afforded to pay a maid @ least 10$ an hour for 24hrs a day, and 365 days a year to live in your house? . Maids are rare and you can only have one for like 10 hours in a week. I’m sure you have not traveled outside before.

          1. Africans will invite their mothers to visit when they have babies in America, or among the Americans the woman will stop work to care for the children for sometime while the man work.

          2. My dear people do have maids check properly it just depend on how many times you want your house to be cleaned i know what i’m talking about a lot of student in Europe are working as maids for people they have been employed by enterprises to work as maids in people houses ,same thing for the nannies there are so many enterprises for that in western countries ,your analyse don’t stand at all.Like i said this hidden camera thing come from parents in western countries this is what they use to keep an eye on nannies and maids.

          3. And for your information,I’m an european citizen,born and living in Europe so i know what i’m talking about,don’t be too sure of your opinions because there you made a big mistake.

          4. I live in the west myself, USA . Like you said enterprises have nannies and maids who you hire their services for some hours. In Africa maid means something different, you keep them in your house 24hrs and they are like slaves. What we call maid in Africa has no direct translation or example in western culture.
            Can you pay have those western country nannies 24/7, 365 days and treat them like slaves.

          5. Well those people needs to contact a lawyer to sign a real negotiating forms before the maids aka nannies here can move into their crib. If in any case these nannies lies against them they would be jailed for good. I witnessed that on ghanaweb, where the couples are still facing trials and awaiting deportation.

          6. When I said we don’t have maids in the West I did not mean it for the ‘literal meaning’ of the word. The maid we have in Africa will be similar to the ones rich whites people had in America and Europe during the slave trade period.
            I told my Ghanaian friend that “we don’t have witches in America” and he understood it as ( the group of people who decides that this period is within the Christmas holidays and for that they must have enough blood by causing as much car wrecks.

          7. Well it depends on your pocket. I have two nannies from Ghana that works for me on rotations. There’s always a negotiating, which at the end becomes very affordable for us. Most people negotiate on 200 to 350 a week with the nanny including great heavy meals. I tried with my mom when i first had my boys but didn’t worked due to her busy working schedule in ghana. Even with a nanny, am still home taking care of my fresh babies. Not thinking of working soon.

  2. I said it before and I would say it again ,if I was this child mother or if anyone tried this on my child ,I would quietly lock the door and beat the nanny mercilessly at gun point ,then I will call police and tell them it was self defence for attempted murder

    1. So the violence will continue right? And then, the maid’s father will also catch you and beat you and call the police—and say self defence. You see the chain of brutish behaviour I am talking about?

      And then it turns into a family war, soon a community war—and then civil war. Oh do you wonder why we have so many civil wars in Africa that we cannot even find a reasonable cause?

      What the maid did is totally inhumane but your solution is equally inhumane.

      1. Chris this is my war and my fight, not a community or national war, I believe I would pay her for taking care of my child hence my child should be treated well besides this is a year old baby, what on earth would prompt a human being a woman to step on a baby what if her stomach or intestine tore or she bled internally,what would u have said,as far as am concern they won’t torture criminals they way she tortured this child so I definitely I would beat her up to my satisfaction then the rest will be left with the police , I don’t care what her family would do.all I know I will beat anyone up who does this to my child what she did to that baby was worse than what they do to criminals in prison hence I would beat anyone mercilessly who tries that on my baby.you mentioned the girls father, if he thinks what his daughter did was right and didn’t deserve the beating he must be sick in the head

      2. You do have a great point, and i understand two wrongs don’t make a right on such stories. On issues like this, parent would loose control and would go extremely higher to a point of killing. Is not easy the way you put it. Someone like me would do an immediate stabbing but thank God for blessing me genuine people. The house help had two options, either to pack her things and resign or control her emotions and stay but guess what? She didn’t and rather attacked this innocent toddler. Only a parents would do what the baby’s daddy did. I read on their country article that the girl called the cops for her master, but master was released immediately he showed the videos to the cops and rather arrested the maid for her act. I doubt if they would ever bring the man’s case to the media. In our western legal system, these man would also face some sentences as well. Our African system don’t have what the western system has so anyone down there would do more than this.

      3. Chris
        You are being very rational in attempting to find the root cause of this behaviour. Your detractors are just being emotional and reptilian in their thinking. One has to be enlightened to understand and see the world as you described it. As you are aware most of our brothers and sisters just came out of their caves and still have the uni-brow to prove it. They will never understand what you are trying to tell them.

  3. I watched the horrible video a few days ago, what on earth would such a little cute baby do to deserve such an inhumane attitude from such callous beast lady, my goodness, what a terrible experience. may the anger of the almighty be upon that lady, may God avenge for the little baby. Amin, I really felt for her and her parents, the maid should be charged with murder.

    Because the child miraculously survived, otherwise she is dead in terms of psychological harm. I’m sure the maid is possessed by an evil spirit and needs to be delivered by the Almighty. Honestly no human heart, worse that of a woman can be this evil especially to an innocent toddler. I’m glad the father was alert and acted quickly. I pray this baby heals both physically and psychologically. Sometimes the mental scars are more damaging than the physical scars.

    1. Thats exactly what my mom inlaw said. This is purely witchcraft gheez. She’s a physical demon with no sympathy at all. At the end the biatch got what she deserved though.

  4. It’s obvious Chris is smart, enlightened and a logical reasoner than most of you commenting. So what is your proposed solutions? He is looking at the deep root of what most cause such attacks. I see it everyday here in Ghana how maids are treated like trash. I don’t think it is different anywhere in Africa too.

    You treat someone like a dog in your house and you want the person to behave like a human being towards your kids? How can a dog suddenly start thinking and behaving like a human being because you want it her to?

    Go and see where some of these househelps sleep and a cat won’t even be allowed to sleep there. They never have rest days they work like donkeys.

    1. Sorry to disrespect you lousy a..s..s… You don’t have a child or children!! Do you? If you have a child born out of your body precisely coochy you wouldn’t make silly comment like that. Sincerely speaking, who among us human being wouldn’t have even done worst than what the father did? Even the holiest person on this planet would have shattered the shit or nearly murdered the woman if that had happened to his little daughters. If you don’t have kids wait till you walk out of the labor room where you go through the toughest pains before you contribute to such discussions. Even if this maid was being maltreated, did she had any right to torture the little girl in such manner? You could have comment in a better way. In the society we don’t fight back or take laws into our own hands but no one on this freaking planet would obey this so called law when a torture like this is involved. In our akan dialect we will say entowo da. Wait till it happens to you and we will all witness your reaction.

  5. Sentimentality never solves anything. As this article critically tries to unearth the underlying cause of this atrocious act, it seems a lot of commentors want to throw away logic, rational thinking and problem solving approach to embrace sentimentality. People need to look at things from a broader spectrum, from Bowlby’s dodo doll experiment, it is evident that human behaviours are hugely influenced either directly or indirectly by their experience, i.e the environment. In this case, just watching this short clip cannot offer a valid and quality conclusion to why this lady assaulted the defenseless child. Intellectuals would appreciate this article for trying explain the possible cause of the lady’s behaviour using an objective approach. I believe commentors would understand and then critically agreed or disagree with the article by offering logical and objective alternatives. Any typos in this comment is a consequence of touchscreen technology lol

  6. Ohhh my Gosh! Who does this? This is so inhumane, and she must be jailed. I don’t care how your madam treat you, the child does not deserve this.

  7. Hmmmm this is very evil I cannot believe another human being can do this to a little baby. But what Chris is saying is really the truth. If we even kill this maid, is that the end? Others will do more that we wont know so we have to start addressing our bad we treat our housemaids who are at our service.

    People can become bitter, jealous and evil based on how they are treated by those they are under.

    1. Yes my dear I agree with you. We have to think instead of pointing fingers.
      Asking where did we go wrong. I have had my own experience with one of my so called educated friend a woman in Ghana when I made Holidays in Ghana and to my eyes I was sooked how she treated her house help. I told her she is not a maid but she is giving you a Hand of help but she sees it different.

  8. It is disheartening to see how some of these maids are being treated. However, that should not be a reason for anyone to maltreat their madam kids. If you are being maltreated or abused by your madam/master, you have the option to either report the matter to the police, quit the job, or both. Sadly, in most cases, some of these maids or houseboys have been brought there by their family members, hence, they feel trapped and have no where else to go but to stay and endure the harsh treatment. And even if they report the maltreatment and the hard conditions to their family members- they’ll be told to shut up and be thankful that they have somewhere to stay and are being taken care of. I think there should be a law that; one must at least be 18 years old to become a maid or a houseboy. Sometimes some of these maids are just way too young to know their rights. By the way, what this particular maid did to the innocent child is inhumane, and she deserves whatever is coming to her. May she rot in prison!!

  9. Chris did u really watch the video very well. The food the maid is eating is different from the child’s food, u should watch it closely. The question is not how bad the parent may be to the maid, but how heartless a person can be as to do such thing to an innocent child regardless of the treatment she may be receiving.

  10. Damn i swear would have committed a serious murder if this was within my territory. I wept on friday night after seeing this video. This is too sad. She was forcing the kid to eat all of that meal. Then, once the baby threw it up, you want to murder her? Insane. she caused her to throw up. Anyways kudos to the baby’s daddy for beating the shiit out of this ugly thing. This innocent child will probably have back and neck disc issues for the rest of her life. I hate nanny’s who abuses kids more than anything else on earth. Her sentence shouldn’t be less than 20years wth. Would be great if the story had a little real information on the maid’s reason for going this far. Even if the child’s parent’s maltreat this stinky maid, her actions towards the child was way beyond her limit.

  11. Infact the girl is very very heartless how can u do this to an innocent and little child like that ,my heart was beating like something..indeed some childrend are suffering from the hands of so called nannies ooo…nine months gene is not easy ooo, i hope the parents deal with her very hard

  12. NOTHING justifies this act- you have to be evil to the core to do something like this- my heart was literally screaming “STOP”- any good person would want to harm a person doing this to any child- whether it is their child or not. Something must have happened in your childhood for you to behave like this as a human being, let alone a woman. No one who ill- treats you in your adulthood can turn you into such a “monster”- this is a build-up of what happened in this woman’s childhood- not how she is treated as an adult.
    People are treated badly in their workplace- even in white collar jobs- you easily find someone who will ill-treat people- do we all go and be “monsters” that kill other people’s children… NOOO!
