A 25-year-old woman who is suspected of killing her baby is expected to appear before Ntuzuma Magistrates Court on Thursday, 28 July 2022. This is after the Inanda police were called out to Amaoti where the community had apprehended her.
On arrival at the scene police established that the community had forced the woman to dig up the shallow grave where the remains of her baby were buried.
Constable Thenjiswa Ngcobo of KwaZulu Natal police said the woman was arrested and detained at Inanda SAPS where she was charged with birth concealment, whilst the body of the baby was transported to a local mortuary.
It is alleged that the woman was pregnant and when she was found without a baby, the neighbours became suspicious and interrogated her. She later told neighbours that the child had died.
