Sex worker arrested for killing baby in Dedza


Police in Dedza have arrested a sex-worker for killing and dumping her newly born baby into a bush opposite Kalinyeke Tollgate.

Dedza Police Deputy Spokesperson Sergeant Cassim Manda has confirmed the arrest of 20 year old sex worker, Queen Gilinja.

Gilinja was arrested Saturday morning, June 25, 2022, at Kalinyeke Trading Centre after residents tipped Dedza Police that they had found remains of the newly born baby wrapped in a bed sheet in the bush.

The team of police officers accompanied by hospital personnel rushed to the scene and collected the remains of the baby whose other parts were already eaten by dogs.

An autopsy report conducted by medical personnel from Dedza District Hospital shows the baby died either from hypothermia due to environmental exposure to freezing temperature after being abandoned in the bush or loss of blood after being eaten by dogs.

Gilinja hails from Kandeu Village, Traditional Authority M’ganja in Ntcheu.
