HIV+ domestic laces kid's porridge with blood

Cape Town - An HIV-positive 17-year-old domestic worker from Masvingo in Zimbabwe was caught lacing the porridge of her employer's 4-year-old child with her own menstrual blood, cruelty that earned her a 10-year prison term, NewsDay reported.

According to the report, Pelagia Mureya carried out the "disgusting act several times until luck ran out for her when one day her employer, noticed a drop of blood when her child was eating porridge and investigated".

The domestic professed ignorance of the blood but her employer took the porridge, her child and the domestic to a nearby hospital where tests confirmed it was Mureya's menstrual blood.

The toddler's mother immediately pressed charges against her, leading to her arrest.
She will effectively serve eight years as two years were suspended on condition of good behaviour.
