South African Mother Age 21, Strangles And Dumps Baby In Pit Latrine
The incident happened yesterday at Ntombiyehlulunina, Maphumulo. And, the 21-year-old woman is due to appear before the Maphumulo Magistrates’ Court tomorrow for murder.
It’s said that the KZN woman strangled her eleven months old baby and dumped his body in a pit toilet after she had a fight with her boyfriend.
She raised a false alarm after she killed the boy; claiming her baby is missing. The police were thus invited to help find the toddler.
“The detective member who was summoned to the scene conducted the initial investigation. The thorough investigation was conducted at the scene and it was established that something does not add up.
“Seeing that she was cornered by the police officer, she spilt the beans. She admitted that she strangled her son and put his body in pit toilet after an argument with his boyfriend.
“She was then placed under arrest and the murder docket was opened at Maphumulo SAPS,” related the police service.
Confirming this incident, Major General Bheki Langa, the Acting Provincial Commissioner in the province praised SAPS members who investigated the case for exposing the evil deed of the woman.
“It is outrageous to hear that the mother is capable of killing her own child. We hope that justice will be served and get a harsher sentence,” said the commissioner.
