Lucy Atieno Ndong’ in court.

A Primary school teacher has landed in trouble for allegedly hitting a toddler’s head using chapati rolling stick.

Lucy Atieno Ndong’ 59, and who is a landlord, is said to have hit the child whose mother is her tenant in Embakasi.

Police said Atieno hit the baby without being provoked. She seems to have lost her cool when the baby’s mother sent her house help to call her to come pick her rent.

The court heard that the house help went to Atieno’s house with the baby strapped on her back.

Police said it was after delivering the message that an angry Atieno is alleged to have hit the baby with the wooden roller.

This forced the house help to flee calling for help with child’s head bleeding and later on found to have been fractured.

The matter was reported to police and Atieno arrested.

She however denied breaking the minor’s head. She was granted Sh20,000 personal bond pending hearing on July 11.
