Police in Mzimba are searching for a Woman who allegedly killed her own six months old baby by dumping together with his four brothers in a deep well to die there.
Mzimba Police Public Relations Officer, Constable Gabriel Chiona confirmed of the development in an interview with the Press and identified the suspect as Mary Moyo.
According to Chiona, the suspect forced her five children to drink poisonous pesticides before pushing them into the well.
He says the six months old baby boy drowned while his four elder brothers managed to come out of the water on their own and rushed to the village to inform the elders.
“Effort to serve the baby proved futile as Villagers arrived at the scene very late as the baby was already dead,” said Chiona.
He said the four Children are currently admitted at Mzimba district Hospital.
Moyo hails from Simeon Mvula Village, Traditional authority M’mbelwa in Mzimba district.
