MSF 'looking into' alleged abuse video

A video that has gone viral on Facebook purporting to show an elderly woman being abused is being investigated by The Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF).

The video – said to be secretly by Facebook user ApohTecky Numero at the flats at Lower Delta Road – shows the elderly woman sweeping the corridor watched by two younger women. When she has finished sweeping, one of the women  – said to be the old woman's daughter  – slaps the left side of her face.

The old woman, visibly shaken reaches out to steady herself. The younger woman the slaps the other side of her face.

At the time of writing, the video had been viewed close to 250,000 times and shared over 16,800 times.

MSF posted a message on Facebook at 10pm on Monday night.

 

 

Some of you have shared a video showing an elderly woman being hit by a younger lady. We are looking into it. Please be assured that the elderly woman's safety is our priority. Thank you.

Below is the video.

 

Before anything, I would like to apologise if this video or my post may hurt or offend anyone. This video is definitely not something that any child or human being would want to see. Have you ever wonder how an abused woman is living in her own house? We have been seeing the changes in the old lady. From an old cheerful lady to a botak and fragile old lady whose face is bruised everytime single time we saw her. As much as we would want to render help, we are in no position to. (domestic affair) We have been witnessing alot of incident but just this one time, we decided to discreetly video-ed them. They were pretending to be talking nicely when my mum was along the corridor hanging the laundry. But the moment my mum stepped into our house............this is just one of the things that happened. This is not the first time. Watch it. Such inhuman. The one who is slapping her is...................her own daughter. How could you. She's your own mum. She carried you in her womb. How could you gang up with others against your own mum? I know many others would comment on why are we not doing anything. However we are sharing this video with hope that many others would help us stop all this together. I hope all of you can share this video. #savethemakcikThe address is 48 lower delta road #03-05
