A twenty-three-year-old Zimbabwean woman living in Ivory Park near Midrand, Gauteng, South Africa, has confessed that she gave birth and put the child in a bucket of water before throwing it into a dirty stream of sewage.
a�?I asked my girlfriend why she no longer had a big tummy, but she didna��t answer me,a�? said the boyfriend from Ivory Park near Midrand, Gauteng.
a�?I suspected she did something to my child. I called the community so that she could explain her actions, and we called the cops.a�?
She took the cops to the place where she had dumped the baby. Ivory Park cops searched the water and found the babya��s body.
The woman told cops she didna��t have money to buy clothes for the child. The boyfriend said that the mum didna��t work.
a�?I was supporting her and our 20-month-old baby,a�? he said. I dona��t know why she killed my child for financial reasons.
a�?The child was going to survive like the rest of us.a�?
Ivory Park cop spokeswoman Nelda Sekgobela said the woman will appear in the Tembisa Magistrates Court soon on a murder charge.- Dailysun
