Heartless young mother throws new-born baby into latrine to die in KZN

The rate at which some heartless mothers abandon their babies to die in terrible circumstances is getting worrisome.

A baby was  thrown into a pit latrine in Impendle, Pietermaritzburg.

The baby was found dead. Police said it was not immediately known whether the child died before or after being thrown into the toilet.

Following the incident on Sunday, the mother of the newborn baby was arrested.

“On February 10 … a newborn baby was found inside a toilet in the Khetha area, Pietermaritzburg,” said police spokesperson Lieutenant-Colonel Thulani Zwane.

“We can confirm that a 22-year-old suspect was arrested by Impendle police for concealment of birth.”

The woman appeared in the Impendle Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday.

There are growing concern of the state of mind of the mothers, who subject their own blood babies to death.
