Madam, nitumie fare nikuje! 20 top lies your househelp tells you…

We have all heard tales of nannies and househelps lie to their employers. They do this in the most innocent of ways by pulling on your heartstrings. By the time you find out you have been foxed, it is too late. You have sent them fare and they have moved on to another employer.

Since this is 2018, I’m hoping the lies will be different. But incase they are not, here are some of the best and top excuses and lies by the house help.

They will give you an insight into deciphering your househelp’s mood. If she is still going to work for you or nah!

Househelp flees after hitting employers child on the head leaving her bleeding

Stories of a ‘househelp from hell’ is now becoming a frequent occurrence in the Kenyan society.

A househelp accused of killing a 16-month-old child in Mbauini village, Lari constituency, Kiambu county last week is still on the loose.

Malep Opisa, 19, hit Nzuki Mutinda with a blunt object on the head at the child’s home last Thursday, left him bleeding on the sofa and fled.

Lari OCPD Isaiah Odhiambo yesterday said police are following reliable information that will help them arrest the house girl for questioning.

Mutinda’s grandmother Lucy Njuguna said Opisa was employed by her daughter Catherine Wanjiru last Monday and she had worked for only three days.

“My daughter brought her son home from Ruiru town since she didn’t have a househelp to take care of him,” Njuguna said at her home yesterday.

“We started looking for a house girl, and we were connected to Opisa by a friend. I received her last week on Monday from Kakamega.

“My daughter was planning to come and pick her son and the househelp and take them to Ruiru on Saturday last week.”

On Thursday she went to check her farm at 10 am and left her grandson with Opisa.

“I fed him porridge and I asked her to cook and feed him lunch. I left for Kambaa village,” Njuguna said.

She said before she went back home Wanjiru called to ask whether her husband had come to see Mutinda, since he had told her he would pass by the home.

Njuguna told her she had called Opisa but her mobile phone was switched off. So she decided to go home to check on Opisa and Mutinda.

When Njuguna got home it was eerily quiet. She called out to Opisa, but the girl did not respond.

“I pushed the door and started screaming. Mutinda had a bloody face and was unconscious. People came and we called a taxi and rushed him to the AIC Kijabe Hospital,” Njuguna said.
Odhiambo said Mutinda died while receiving treatment.

Lari OCPD Isaiah Odhiambo speaks to the press at his office at Lari police station.

Speaking at his office at Lari police station, Odhiambo said the baby had swollen bruises on the head and had blood in the eyes, an indicator she had been tortured and beaten.

He said police are pursuing the suspect who escaped after the incident.

The child’s body is lying in the hospitals mortuary awaiting an autopsy.

We have seen children being mistreated, beaten and even denied food by house helps. This is very unfortunate since they are innocent. They should have mercy and put themselves in their mother’s shoes, would they want theirs to be killed, tortured or beaten by house girls? Robert Kimani, a resident asked.
