‘Investigations have also revealed that the young girl was serially abused and brutalized by Mrs Esther Zazi David leaving many injuries including a broken collar bone, which was sustained when her mistress allegedly threw her down on the ground and viciously stepped on her neck, shoulder, and chest. The doctors will also handle that injury.
