Woman misinterprets Psalm 137:9 and crushed her kids with a rock

The police in Muzokomba, Zimbabwe, have detained a 24-year-old lady named Mary Rukobo for snatching her two-month-old and two-year-old children by the legs and hitting them with rocks.

She misread Psalms 137 verse 9 after reading it in isolation rather than reading the full chapter to gain the proper context, according to eyewitnesses who spoke to local news platforms. “Happy is the one who seizes your infants and dashes them against the rocks,” the scripture reads.

While her brother is battling for his or her life in a hospital, the two-month-old infant passed away instantly. Mary said during questioning that she had heard a “divine voice” telling her to commit the act.

Confirming her arrest, the police said in a statement;

“Police in Muzokomba have arrested Mary Rukobo (24) in connection with a case of murder which occurred on 19 January 2023 at Mashangana Village, Buhera.

“The suspect allegedly confessed to some villagers that she crashed the heads of her two kids against a rock several times during a prayer session after hearing a voice ordering her to kill them.

“One of the kids, Calvin Maputsa (2 months) sustained head injuries and died on the spot, while another kid (2) sustained a swollen head and was admitted at Murambinda Mission Hospital”
