Police in Limbe have arrested a 21 year old Aida Mukhala for allegedly concealing birth of a child at Machinjiri’s area 8 location in Limbe.
According to Limbe Police Spokesperson Sergeant Aubrey Singanyama, on September 10,2023, when a three-year-old girl went to answer a call of nature at around 0700 hours, she saw something resembling a human form inside a pit latrine.
Singanyama says immediately the girl informed her father, who later discovered the body of a newly born child after smashing down the latrine.
He then questioned his housemaid, who had complained of stomach pains a few days prior to the incident.
When questioned, the suspect revealed that she was pregnant and had a miscarriage inside the toilet.
She was taken to Limbe Police Station, where she was referred to Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital, where she is currently receiving medical attention.
The Police publicist says the newly born child’s body was taken to the mortuary at the same medical facility.
Aida Mukhala hails from Thamanda village in the area of Traditional Authority Nazombe in Phalombe district.
