An 18-year-old woman is under arrest in Kasungu for allegedly dumping a new born baby in a toilet early morning today.
Kasungu Police assistant spokesperson, Miracle Mkozi, says the suspect concealed pregnancy from all around her and gave birth around four in the morning.
“A neighbor who went out to answer the call of nature heard a baby crying from inside the toilet. The neighbor alerted people in the compound,” she said.
Mkozi says police rushed to the scene where they rescued the baby girl from the pit latrine.
“Both the mother and the baby were taken to Kasungu District Hospital for treatment and condition for both is fair,” Mkozi said.
The teen mother hails from the area of Traditional Authority Kaomba in Kasungu.
