Ethiopian maid found burned and suffering in Muammar Qaddafi’s son Hannibal and his wife Aline Skaf home

by yeEthiopiaforums


CNN reporter didn’t expect the horror and brutality of this kind in one of Gaddafi’s son Hannibal lavish beachfront house in Tripoli while he and his crew filming the excessive life style of Hannibal and his wife, the former Lebanese model, Aline Skaf.

The following is how CNN international correspondent Dan Rivers found Ethiopian Shweyga Mullah and her story .


Shweyga Mullah been the nanny to Hannibal’s little son and daughter.

As we were about to leave, one of the staff told us there was a nanny who worked for Hannibal Gadhafi who might speak to us. He said she’d been burnt by Hannibal’s wife, Aline.

I thought he meant perhaps a cigarette stubbed out on her arm. Nothing
prepared me for the moment I walked into the room to see Shweyga

At first I thought she was wearing a hat and something over her face.
Then the awful realization dawned that her entire scalp and face were
covered in red wounds and scabs, a mosaic of injuries that rendered
her face into a grotesque patchwork.

Even though the burns were inflicted three months ago, she was clearly still in considerable pain. But she told us her story calmly.

She’d been the nanny to Hannibal’s little son and daughter.

The 30-year-old came to Libya from her native Ethiopia a year ago. At first things seemed OK, but then six months into her employment she said she was burned by Aline.

Three months later the same thing happened again, this time much more seriously.

In soft tones, she explained how Aline lost her temper when her daughter wouldn’t stop crying and Mullah refused to beat the child.

“She took me to a bathroom. She tied my hands behind my back, and tied my feet. She taped my mouth, and she started pouring the boiling water on my head like this,” she said, imitating the vessel of scalding hot water being poured over her head.

She peeled back the garment draped carefully over her body. Her chest, torso and legs are all mottled with scars — some old, some still red, raw and weeping. As she spoke, clear liquid oozed from one nasty open  wound on her head.

After one attack, “There were maggots coming out of my head, because she had hidden me, and no one had seen me,” Mullah said.

Eventually, a guard found her and took her to a hospital, where she received some treatment.

But when Aline Gadhafi found out about the kind actions of her co-worker, he was threatened with imprisonment, if he dared to help her again.

“When she did all this to me, for three days, she wouldn’t let me sleep,” Mullah said. “I stood outside in the cold, with no food. She would say to staff, ‘If anyone gives her food, I’ll do the same to you.’ I had no water — nothing.”

Her colleague, a man from Bangladesh who didn’t want to give his name, says he was also regularly beaten and slashed with knives. He corroborated Mullah’s account and says the family’s dogs were treated considerably better than the staff.

Mullah was forced to watch as the dogs ate and she was left to go hungry, he said.

It seems to sum up how the workers at the beachside complex were viewed by the Gadhafi family.

“I worked a whole year they didn’t give me one penny,” Mullah said. “Now I want to go to the hospital. I have no money. I have nothing.”

She starts sobbing gently — an utterly pitiful scene.

Does ms CANNIBAL eat human flesh! How could the beast possibly commit such brutal acts to some innocent nanny only because she failed to quieten their noisy, unruly, … children? Some one should take away the children or the idiot vampire would do the same to her own children.

Ms.Aline Skaf(Cannibal) is the wife of Gaddafi’s son Hanibal who did the most horrible brutal atrocity on the innocent Ethiopian lady.She is the most wanted monster: she won’t go away unpunished with her crime! All peace loving individuals most importantly Ethipians abroad and home should work relentlessly to bring this criminal to justice. In the mean we will do our best to get the young victim out of libiya inorder she can have better care and comfort.

Masweet September 2, 2011 - 6:49 pm

I pray that it’s not too late for her to get treatmet and that she won’t have long term effects. Many thanks to the good people who are taking care of her.

I hope those cruel inhumane beast are caught and tortured until they die. Is a fund being raised to help this poor Ethiopian woman. Is she not eligible for compensation from the Libyan government? Someone must help her. Please CNN, keep this story alive.

Toni October 28, 2011 - 9:35 pm

That this woman was burnt by Hanibal’s wife is another propaganda lie. Most probably she has hurt that severe by NATO-bombs.

veronica November 16, 2011 - 10:29 am

this is satanic and demonic. Aline deserves to live alone. nobody should really be near her, even her own children. she can do anything to anybody. she is a beast, she deserves a severe punishment.she will one day pay for what she has done to that innocent nanny. Aline you are so inhumane. wait and see how you will pay for this.

Emeka December 3, 2011 - 2:32 pm
