A HARARE maid was last week dragged to court on allegations of causing the death of her employer’s 11months old son after he scalded himself with boiling water she left in the corridor of their house.

Vaida Nzanga, 20, from Mainway Meadows, Waterfalls, appeared before magistrate Barbra Chimboza facing culpable homicide charges.

She was remanded in custody pending bail hearing.

The incident occurred on March 13 this year.

Court heard that Nzanga filled a 10 litre bucket with boiling water intending to use it for her bath.

Nzanga carried the bucket to the bathroom but before getting there, she allegedly placed it down along the passage to attend to a door.

As she was closing the door, court heard, the boy ran through the passage and collided with the bucket.

The water spilled onto the boy who sustained serious burns. He was ferried to Mbuya Dorcas hospital where he died two days later.

Sebastian Mutizirwa appeared for the state.
