Reading Time: 1 minute

Police are holding a woman accused of burning his son's hands for allegedly stealing food from a neighbour's house in Homa Bay, southwestern Kenya.

When the 23-year-old mother learned that her son had allegedly broken into the neighbor's home and eaten fried liver, she reportedly tied his hands with a nylon sack's string before setting it ablaze.

According to reports, the young boy playing with his three siblings went into the neighbor's home and took the food before the neighbor's kid noticed him and reported him.

Neighbors who heard the boy's screams as his hands were lit on fire intervened to save the toddler from her mother's grasp.

The kid was rushed to Homa Bay Referral Hospital, where he is receiving medical attention.
