Renowned actress and producer, Ama K Abebrese has still not found the heart to watch the viral CCTV video's which shows how an 11month old baby was maltreated by a supposed caregiver, yet.
It isn't many who can watch it, personally I am in shock, and in denial that, the 11month's old hands were held back forcefully, by a 54year old Clara, who must certainly be a mother herself and I can only accept the tag of pure wickedness for her, full deserving every punishment the laws may prescribe eventually.
Ama Abebrese interestingly has some good answers, as she extends the debate against career women sending wards to school vey early, as in this case.
She therefore writes in relation to the tragic death of 11 month old baby girl, Allegra Yaba Ackah Mensah who died as a result of force feeding by a caregiver at a nursery, that:
"My heart goes out to the parents and family of 11 month old baby girl Allegra Yaba Ackah Mensah, who was tragically killed by a caregiver at a nursery who forced fed the baby. RIP to that beautiful child. Reading the reports, I can’t imagine what the family is going through. This has saddened and angered so many of us. (I’m told that there is a CCTV footage of the incident on social media. I cannot bring myself to watch it.)
This must be a every parent/guardian’s worst nightmare. I pray for healing for the family. I hope the women who committed this faces the full extent of the law
I have seen comments like this that seek to inadvertently blame parents who take their kids to nursery while they go out and work; but mostly seeking to blame mothers especially.
Maternity leave in Ghana is only 3 months. 3 Months. There has been talk of that being reviewed over the years to make it 6 months, but that has not happened yet.
The nursery is operational with CCTV cameras so parents can feels secure that children will be safe. However, the caregiver actions caused this, and now those parents must be going through unimaginable grief.
It’s interesting that some people chose this tragedy to ‘warn’ career women and not mention fathers whom are equally responsible for children.
Either parent can make sacrifices for their children. Millions of children go to nursery and don’t get killed. So maybe focus on the fact that this was a tragedy and an irresponsible caregiver’s actions resulted in the child’s death. Instead of guilt tripping parents who have no choice than to take their kids to nursery in order to go and work to take care of their families.
More training and education needs to be given to those that work with children. The owners of such institutions also need to meet the high standards.
Again my heart and prayers go out to the parents. I pray for their healing. May that beautiful baby Rest in Peace.
