A mother who killed her nine-year-old son by setting him on fire as punishment for smoking has been sentenced to 11 years in prison.
Noluthando Nomavayi , 37, from Delft in Cape Town drenched her two sons with paraffin and set them alight when she discovered them smoking cigarettes in May 2011.
The older son survived the vicious attack but the younger one suffered 90 per cent burns and died at the Red Cross Hospital in Cape Town six weeks later, Sowetan Live reported.
I don't care what happened to her as a child.
As an adult you have to move on to do what's best for your child no matter what you yourself may have experienced.
I'm sure I can lie this at the feet of the antismokers,it's not hard to do.
Their prejudice and scare tactics have lead to many innocent people either killing themselves or being murdered for smoking.
I wish they could see the monument of names and dates that are built,human lives all ended because of their disgusting campaign.
They want to stop smoking to save lives.
Their words not mine
Do anti-smokers feel shame when a child is killed?
How about when an old woman loses her fingers or toes?
Maybe they feel shame when people leap out of windows..........or maybe not.
