Wife films secret footage of orphanage manager beating children with a stick and kicking them until they burst into tears

A wife filmed secret footage of her orphanage manager husband beating children with a stick and kicking them until they burst into tears.

The video shows Osama Mohamed Othman hitting the children before kicking them as they run away, screaming in pain. State-run Al-Ahram newspaper said Othman"s estranged wife filmed the video two months ago at Dar Mecca Al-Mokarama Orphanage in Giza.

"He used to beat the children and that"s why I filmed him and uploaded it online in order to expose him," Elham Eid Awad was quoted as saying, reported Gulf News. The video appeared on social media on Sunday.

Within a day, it was was viewed more than 20,000 times on YouTube and gained more than 85,000 shares on Facebook. Egyptian President Abdul Fattah Al Sissi called for steps to bring "wrongdoers" to justice and Othman was arrested on Monday night.

But Othman claimed he treated the orphans like his children and was only trying to stop them from misbehaving.

They apparently turned on the TV and opening the refrigerator without his permission. His wife reportedly gave other videos to prosecutors as evidence.

Shortly after the video was uploaded, Social Solidarity Minister Ghada Wali ordered for the children to be transferred to another orphanage.

An activist with the handle @GhadaEgyptologist tweeted: "The kids are so happy, as if they just got freed from a prison". If convicted, the defendant can be jailed for seven years in prison, according to legal experts.
