Woman detained for pouring hot water on co wife!


The rural village of Niamina Sambang was the scene of a bizarre drama recently that ended with severe injuries on Kumba Baldeh, a married woman in her early 40s.

Speaking to Freedom from Sambang, an anominous witness revealed that the victim Kumba Baldeh had an argument with her co wife, Teneng Sabally which resulted into a fight and when neighbours separated, Teneng sneaked and poured hot water on her victim who suffered degrees of burns and was rushed to the Dankunku Health Centre, where she was referred to Bansang Hospital and right now in Kanifing Hospital undergoing treatment.

The witness noted that domestic violence involving co wives is common in that part of the country and called on the local authorities to raise awareness and bring an end to this.
