A young lady has been blind since 2016 after her mother slapped her during a misunderstanding between the two.
Narrating her ordeal on Nhyira FM’s Ewiase Mu Nsem program, the lady now a mother of one, recounted how an argument broke out between her and her parents over her decision to drop out of High School.
Then 18 years old, she was infuriated at her parents for making her work to pay for her fees herself when they had sources of income.
After a few words were exchanged, her blind father was fed up an got up to spank her severely.
Out of nowhere, her mum, trying to intervene, slapped her with her father’s walking stick, and from there her eye sight just got worse and worse.
Medical doctors have however said that the lady went blind because of underlying glaucoma that was triggered by the hit.
Her mother, who couldn’t stomach the guilt of blinding her daughter, has fallen into a deep depression and resulted to alcoholism.
