THE mother of the three-year-old boy who has 44 needles and wires imbedded in his body will be charged with criminal child negligence.
Eastern Province Commissioner of Police Lackson Sakala said a close relative could have imbedded the needles and wires in the boy’s body.
Mr Sakala said the motive of pricking the boy with many needles and sharp wires was to kill the child, and whoever is behind this act will face the wrath of the law.
He said this when he briefed journalists yesterday.
